"On the verge of" in lyrics
There aren't any stars in the night sky, please help me cut them out
The paper cuts in my head are
Illuminated faintly by the light, on the verge of breaking, I fear
The paper cuts in my head
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
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,
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?
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
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
The pitch-black sun, when it plummeted to its death,
left behind the burnt-in silhouette of a single summer as its last will,
which bleeds deep red in a bathroom waste bin, on the verge of tears.
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
