Lyrics
:

Memories come flooding back
The bitter pain of disappointment
Of once of having love but now I only feel loss

I'M LIVING ON A KNIFEDGE
AT THE END OF THE LINE 
I'M TAKING ALL THE HARD SELL
I'M LOOKING FOR A LIFE LINE
Right now

Hey now now
Oh oh oh

Let the bells ring out

When you ain't got no-one in this world 
It makes you feel useless
It gives you nothing to live for nothing to die for oh no no
For I'm burning up burning up burning up
Such a long way from home
I've got it all to give and no-one
To give it to

That's why I'm looking for you
For someone to whom I can prove
That I'm not through no no no no
I'm alive and that's the truth

I'M LIVING ON A KNIFEDGE 
AT THE END OF THE LINE 
I'M TAKING ALL THE HARD SELL 
I'M LOOKING FOR A LIFE LINE
ON A KNIFEDGE
I'M LOOKING FOR YOU NOW.
I'M LOOKING FOR YOU

I'm looking for you

And the doors of love seem closed
No matter how hard I try to kick 'em down 
It seems to all add up in my mind
Just going round and around and around 
Oh, I'm fired up fired up fired up
'Cause there's nothing I can do to change things
I've just gotta sit back and wait for our chance to come

That's why I'm looking for you
For someone to whom I can prove
That I'm not through no no no no
I'm alive and I need you too

I'M LIVING ON A KNIFEDGE 
AT THE END OF THE LINE
I'M TAKING ALL THE HARD SELL 
I'M LOOKING FOR A LIFE LINE
ON A KNIFEDGE
NO NO
I'M LOOKING FOR YOU NOW

Memories come flooding back
The bitter pain of disappointment
Of once of having love but now
I only feel loss
There's such a  pointlessness about it all
I've gotta force that to the back of my mind 
And you know,  the important thing now
Is just I've gotta survive

I'M LIVING ON A KNIGEDGE 
I'M ON THE END OF THE LINE 
I'M TAKING ALL THE HARD SELL 
I'M LOOKING FOR A LIFE LINE I'M LIVING ON A KNIFE EDGE
I'M LIVING ON THE END OF A LINE
I'M TAKING TAKING ALL THE HARD SELL
JUST LOOKING FOR THE LIFE LINE
ON A KNIFE EDGE
OH MY GOD NO
I'M LOOKING FOR YOU NOW

I'M LIVING ON A KNIFE EDGE
