OUT ON THE EDGE

Jenny went back to her 3-time loser
Said she just needed a man who wouldn't confuse her, abuse her,
Or leave his clothes all over the floor she said
I need somebody to take care of me
I'm not the beauty I used to be
In my younger days, I could pick and choose, but it's not like that anymore
And so she closes her eyes to the gravity of the compromise she makes
And she wonders sometimes....

What ever happened to a life out on the edge
Taking that moment and just going for it - not knowing what comes next
Risking everything for love and hope and the chance to sing
Whatever happened to a life out on the edge?
Well I guess I haven't come in yet

Talked to my friend on the telephone
He's so tired of being alone, he's found himself a comfortable woman
Easy on the eyes and on the mind
She never contradicts his spoken word
Looks like an angel, eats like a bird
Breasts as perfect as honeydew melons - some would say she's a find
On the other hand, she doesn't have much to say, 'cept to talk about the weather
But for now he'll live with the choice he's made
But I say...

What ever happened to a life out on the edge
Taking that moment and just going for it - not knowing what comes next
Risking everything for love and hope and the chance to sing
Whatever happened to a life out on the edge?
Well I guess I haven't come in yet

Oh, there's still hope for me as long as I don't wish to be settled
I'll never settle down
I'll never settle down...Ah

He was a conventional man with a suit and tie and a contingency plan
For every eventuality except falling in love with a girl like me
And I'll admit I had my doubts that we could ever work this out and
I told him so, over and over again
He just tipped his head to one side, smiled at me and said, "hey baby,
don't knock it if you haven't tried and besides...

What ever happened to a life out on the edge
Taking that leap, throwin' it deep and simply hoping for the best
Risking everything for love and whatever it might bring.."
Whatever happened to a life out on the edge?
Well I guess I haven't come in yet
