Late last night I was dreaming
I was dreaming of your charms
I was standing
On the edge of love, darling
With you in my arms

Well you whispered sweet things
And told me
That you loved me and always be true
And you'd stand
On the edge of love with me
If I'd stand with you

I'm standing on the edge of love
Just about to slip and fall
Standing on the edge of love, darling
Waiting on your call
You know I'm standing on the edge of love
Just about to lose my mind
Standing on the edge of love, darling
Waiting on you one more time

Now a young man's mind will wander
Wander to distant shores
If you'll just come here
And stand with me
I won't wander no more

I promise to stop all of my gambling
Even stop staying out late all night
Might even settle down and have babies
Treat ourselves right

'Cause a young man's dreams are many
Lord, so few come true
So if you'll just come here
And stand with me
I'll stand with you

That's why I say you know
I'm standing on the edge of love
Just about to slip and fall
Standing on the edge of love, darling
Waiting on your call, that's why I say
You know, I'm standing on the edge of love
Just about to lose my mind
Standing on the edge of love, darling
Waiting on you one more time

That's why I'm standing, standing
Standing, yes, I'm standing
Standing on the edge of love
Waiting on you one more time

That's why I'm standing, standing
Standing, yes, I'm standing
Standing on the edge of love
Waiting on you one more time

That's why I'm standing, standing
Standing, yes, I'm standing
Standing on the edge of love
One more time
