On The Edge of Glory by Lady Gaga

What do you think?

This song was actually written as a eulogy for Lady Gaga’s own grand father’s funeral. It reminds me of Mount Olympus or heaven. In one line of the song she says “Let’s take another shot before we kiss the other side.” I think it’s a really cool song to go out to and have actually requested it be played at my own funeral by surviving family members. 

Lyrics

There ain’t no reason you and me should be alone 
Tonight yeah baby, tonight yeah baby 
But I got a reason that you-hoo should take me home tonight 

I need a man that makes it right when it’s so wrong 
Tonight yeah baby, tonight yeah baby 
Right on the limit’s where we know we both belong tonight 

It’s time to feel the rush to push the dangerous
I’m gonna run right to, to the edge with you 
Where we’ll both fall far in love 

I’m on the edge of glory and I’m hangin’ on a moment of truth 
Out on the edge of glory and I’m hangin’ on a moment with you 

I’m on the edge, the edge, the edge, 
The edge, the edge, the edge, the edge

I’m on the edge of glory 
And I’m hangin’ on a moment with you 
I’m on the edge with youAnother shot before we kiss the other side 
Tonight yeah baby, tonight yeah baby 
I’m on the edge of something final we call life tonight alright, alright

 

Put on your shades ’cause I’ll be dancing in the flames 
Tonight yeah baby, tonight yeah baby
It isn’t hell if everybody knows my name tonight alright, alright

It’s time to feel the rush to push the dangerous
I’m gonna run right to, to the edge with you 
Where we can both fall far in love 

I’m on the edge of glory and I’m hangin’ on a moment of truth 
Out on the edge of glory and I’m hangin’ on a moment with you 

I’m on the edge, the edge, the edge, 
The edge, the edge, the edge, the edge

I’m on the edge of glory 
And I’m hangin’ on a moment with you 
I’m on the edge with you
I’m on the edge with you
I’m on the edge with you

I’m on the edge of glory and I’m hangin’ on a moment of truth 
Out on the edge of glory and I’m hangin’ on a moment with you 

I’m on the edge, the edge, the edge, 
The edge, the edge, the edge, the edge

I’m on the edge of glory and I’m hangin’ on a moment with you 
I’m on the edge with you
I’m on the edge with you
I’m on the edge with you
I’m on the edge with you
