Richard Hawley - Standing at the Sky's Edge

rate me

Joseph was a good man though he killed his wife

His hungry little children, he took their lives

This was the end of a desperate man

With only love in his eyes, no evil hands

He was standing at the sky’s edge

And out there who knows what he’s looking

He was sliding down the razor’s edge

And watched his life slowly sinking, away, away

Mary was a trouble girl, she stole to eat

She had to sell body to put shoes on her feet

Stole a car and tried to get away

Now all she hears is the rain on the roof

At sky’s edge jail

She was standing at the sky’s edge

And out there who knows what she’s thinking

She was sliding down the razor’s edge

And watched her life slowly sinking, away, away,

They were standing at the sky’s edge

And out there who knows what they’re thinking

They were sliding down the razor’s edge

And watched their lives slowly sinking,

Away, away, away, away, away

So much fear in the city it carried him away

Young men fighting and loosing their lives

At night as the screech howls and the trees watch

Young men die

They were standing at the sky’s edge

And out there who knows what they’re thinking

They were sliding down the razor’s edge

And watched their lives slowly sinking,

Away, away, away, away, away.
