The Edge of Tonight

Album: Future Hearts (2015)
  • It's a long way home,
    When you're on your own,
    And your only friends are traffic lights,
    Speaking in Morse code,
    Yeah the road is long,
    And I am tired,
    But with you on my horizon,
    I will drive until it all breaks down

    'Cause I can't breathe without you near,
    You keep me safe,
    Keep me sane,
    Keep me honest,

    You keep me alive,
    On the edge of tonight,
    Chasing tomorrow,
    With fire in my eyes, (Yeah)
    You're like a siren in the dark,
    You're the beat playing in my heart,
    You keep me alive,
    On the edge of tonight, (Yeah)

    Spent my whole damn life,
    Trying to get things right,
    And for every one of my mistakes,
    You gave me all these chances,
    When the roads too long,
    I am tired,
    Baby you are my horizon,
    And I'll drive until it all breaks down,

    You keep me alive,
    On the edge of tonight,
    Chasing tomorrow,
    With fire in my eyes, (Yeah)
    You're like a siren in the dark,
    You're the beat playing in my heart,
    You keep me alive,
    On the edge of tonight, (Yeah)

    (You keep me safe,
    You keep me sane,
    You keep me honest, honest, honest, oh woah
    You keep me safe,
    You keep me sane,
    You keep me honest)

    You keep me alive,
    On the edge of tonight,
    Chasing tomorrow,
    With fire in my eyes, (Yeah)
    You're like a siren in the dark,
    You're the beat playing in my heart,
    You keep me alive,
    On the edge of tonight, (Yeah)

    We're on the edge of tonight
    The edge of tonight
    You keep me safe,
    You keep me sane,
    You keep me honest, honest, honest (Standing on the edge of tonight)
    On the edge of tonight
    The edge of tonight
