THE LEDGE
Lori McKenna


Once you're up on the ledge
there's only one way down
So I'll keep you up there
where you're safe and sound

My knuckles are white
Your ankles are red
As you dance from your height
and I lie on the ledge

The killer in me likes to see you cry
The killer in me won't let you,
won't let you die...

I can't say what I feel
in fear you might fall
I'm afraid for you
I'm afraid for us all

The killer in me likes to see you cry
The killer in me won't let you,
won't let you die...

What makes you think you're the only one
to love and lose, and lose...

You put the poison in the soup
Drench the bed with gasoline
and all for the love of you
I'm scrubbing sheets clean

The killer in me who likes to see you cry
The killer in me will not let you die,
won't let you die...
I will not let you die,
I won't let you die...

So my knuckles are white
Your ankles are red
and I'll spend my whole life
keeping you up on the ledge

Keeping you up on that ledge,
Keeping you up on the ledge...
