"On the verge of" in lyrics
It's big balling baby when I'm courting you
I'm talking spy bags and fly pads and rooms at the Bloomberg
And rumors you on the verge of a new merge
'Cause that rock on ya finger is like a tumor
Pain enjoyed as flamenco singers and tango singers.
Madrid, where Lupe is always on the verge of thought but never falls,
Miami is the bridge that connects Latinos with the Saxons,
You imagine you’re in love with me
Don’t worry, this is your daily game
One that is on the verge of leaving is always nervous
Two days will pass after this nervousness and I’ll be gone from your memories
If you dont understand who I am, or what I do,
Don't understand the pain and the tears of the clown.
The world is on the verge of decomposition,
Transforms a brother of mine in an unhappy vermin.
I got the slab of a guy from back home, sometimes I'm completely unmanageable
I'm in the studio and nothing but the sound engineer complains
Big Black is on the verge of breaking everything
wonder if there's the moonlight, the yellow traffic light is on the verge of changing,
when it changes to the excessively long red light, without fail we share a kiss
You always walk on my left side, putting your small hand in my pocket
to taste my tear, while you are leaving me my love,
Like a wave get drunk my desire (lust), in my magical rocking ( back and forth)
And on the verge of your rapture say, that you love me a hundred times
So guys, tell me, a friend is what, exactly?
A kind of brother present at every moment
When, sometimes, you have nausea, on the verge of exploding
The only thing you can count on
To write you this song for the acoustic funeral
On the verge of a vow to kill all reason locking that door
To a nightmare within a nightmare we are bound to adore
Above the cemeteries, the windmills and rickshaws
In the cash, in the nerves, on the verge of being all against all
In place of your heart, arming kids with Molotov spirits
Drawing his bow, he takes after his target; he won’t let it escape
Releasing his arrow, he closes upon it; he won’t let it escape
He bends his bow to its limits, the string on the verge of snapping
He’ll release it, time and time again, until the target draws its last breath
Although our city will never be destroyed by Zeus’s
decree or by the will of the blessed immortal Gods;
because of our great-hearted overseer highborn
Maiden Athena, who keeps her hands over us;
Though I know it's on purpose, don't do things that make me worry
Though it's happened twice or thrice, I'm beyond recovering
Poke me and I'll crumble, I'm on the verge of exploding
Oh, why have I become like this?
Yet again, the Nevski Avenue chases away all desire to sleep.
At one point I'm on the verge of going insane...
I'm a subtle mouse at this carnival of the billboard lights.
Tonight, I'm going out so as not to stay in once again.
I passed by and accompanied George Tsalikis.
I'm on the verge of bursting. If I want to redeem myself,
I need to spill the beans because I'm going insane.
and i never drank alcohol and i never got high
it was the end of a hundred years that took me by surprise
what i thought to be dangerous, on the verge of a smile
turning out to be nothing more than hiss and overdrive
There's no difference, those omissions and the sting of the past
Your indiscretion from the start determined if it would last
And now I'm standing on the verge of maybe drawing the line
And no one's gonna sleep tonight
And don't you remember thinkin' back just a few years
When people used to try to help you stay together
They find out you're on the verge of breakin' up
They used to cook up a little food and throw a little party
The issue on the table: France is on the verge of war with England, and do we provide aid and troops to our French allies or do we stay out of it? Remember, my decision on this matter is not subject to congressional approval. The only person you have to convince is me. Secretary Jefferson, you have the floor, sir
Tonight, I'll either fall dead or go crazy.
The very thought of you is burning my mind, burning my mind, I'm on the verge of completely losing it.
How am I supposed to keep on living like this? I need you so bad.
Death on my heels[fn]this is also the French title of "North by northwest"[/fn], bit between my teeth,
Don't even know what I'm expecting anymore
On the verge of technical KO
My life that's a ring, a circus
On the verge of, on the verge of something wonderful.
At the edge of, on the verge of something wonderful.
On the verge of, on the verge of something wonderful.
A resurgence, on the edge of something wonderful
Adult passions were flaring
on a TV in the attic.
There was a hedgehog in the fog on the verge of spring (a Soviet cartoon)
And seventeen moments of spy tribulation … (a famous Soviet movie about spies)
That they stop complaining, it's always me the victim
I lost a lot of ego and a bit of money
When I'm on the verge of breaking down, I tell myself that the condom too
The sluts and me, a series of dismal stories
Contemplating everything while doing nothing
On the verge of tears just because you are somewhat in love
I don't wanna be afraid and worry in the shade about the end
Here I am
I couldn't overcome the wall which is called break-up,I'm in this place while I'm on the verge of tears
the winter wind is cold,my tears are cold,they come out when I think of you
At school I was below average
I made myself work nonstop to live above average
On the verge of tears when I go to bed, at the edge of my nerves to drink litres
I'm losing my cool, I'm talking badly, I'm headed for a chaotic life
I'm still doing the music thing, I'm rarely there
There where ablazing in the middle of nowhere,
On the verge of insanity, love is found in a disco bathroom
Night after night, skirts as scant as their brains
You're faster than a villainous ball and think yourself worthy
But who botches his games to finish them on time?
Care for the rainfall, you're on the verge of the chasm.
If you need help, SONIC RAINBOOM! I leave you my '06! (3)
But of course, there's nothing to it, please do, Madam,
call upon us because not everything is lost, not the entirety
of your dawn myths is lost, here the sun shines for all and we believe in that.[fn]What a pompous bore... I'm on the verge of foaming at the mouth and keeling over...[/fn]
And possessing a vocabulary substantially less robust than impromptu visitors replied, “Say what?”
“Seek we sanctuary!” They implore on the verge of hysteria, “Lest we fall forthwith to the ravenous appetency of yonder approaching carnivore!” Still confounded by their importunate words, Pig three did render ajar his portal whereupon one and two spilled through and collapse beyond the threshold, enervated.
But that's just obscene
There ain't that many such rear fouls[fn]"takalaiton" means out of the park foul ball. In "pesäpallo" (Finnish, even lamer version of baseball) you don't get homerun hits. If you hit the ball too far it gets ruled a foul ball.[/fn] around
Back's been on the verge of breaking the whole night
Those jeans may rip but I'm still not gonna flip
Hold on to me tight, yeah
And if you feel any pressure, that's alright, alright
There's a leak in your Levi, it's on the verge of caving in
But I'm prepared if it breaks, baby, so whenever you feel it coming, don't fight
The silence as a requiem for the absurd
A disillusioned mind overcome by chaos
On the verge of total breakdown
My very existence revolves around distorted compositions and false judgement
his feet . . . oh, how he used to run to me,
seeking assurance of his mother's love.
His face was handsome, on the verge of manhood. 1670
See the soft down still resting on these lips,
The weight of all the world is really weighing on me! (So much pressure)
This is no time to quit
I'm on the verge of a hit
And I’m determined to make this a success, yeah
The whole city hears us, the villages will hear us as well if you go on shouting that way
Like a bankrupt merchant on the verge of selling his heart
You're searching the seed of quarrel, you plant it in our house
Somehow I have been stunn'd. Stand back!
Give me a little time beyond my cuff'd head, slumbers, dreams, gaping,
I discover myself on the verge of a usual mistake.
I'm at weddings but never getting married
Koutsi[fn]Koutsi means 'a coach' and is the nickname of Jare Joakim Brand[/fn] is wearing a suit for entirely different reasons
I'm on the verge of passing out even on the side of the rink
In the morning I have a terrible headache again
Sunlight was the only thing that felt right before I came here
But inside it feels like it keeps raining
And every drop is like the tears we could cry
Because outside we were all alone
That's why they hood spend most of their days
Blowin' president kush, the way he got us daily
Give us a reason to push unless he on the verge of suicide
And we gave 'em a push
You'll be frustrated 'til the day that you're done
He got punched the mouth for sticking his nose in other people's business
No good solution, always on the verge of some revolution
With tough luck it may take a thousand years but I think we can do it
