Alex says: I saw this lyric (*31445) by @Cicpisces and it struck me as being really well structured and worth trying to put to music. Here's my attempt.

Lyrics: 

Cliff Edge

From the view up here
There are two ways to go
Either we walk away
Or fall to the rocks below

We can hold hands tight
As tension hides our smiles
We have no wings to fly
See the drop below is miles

Choices need to be made
On the brink of a break

On the cliff edge
Sheer drop down is far
Do we pull back
Steer back on track
Or speed ahead
Crashing our sports car

Good photos are proof
Those times were real special
Before we felt the sun
Good weather's taken a fall

High view gives me chills
Bones won't survive the fall
Hear our steps to the brink
I say you're so beautiful

Choices need to be made
On the brink of a break

On the cliff edge
Sheer drop down is far
Do we pull back
Steer back on track
Or speed ahead
Crashing our sports car

Balanced on the cliff edge
One slip we could be dead
Feet on the thin cliff edge
Let's try and keep our head

Choices need to fix things
On the brink of breaking

On the cliff edge
Sheer drop down is far
Do we pull back
Steer back on track
Or speed ahead
Crashing our sports car

the music is awesome and creepy in this. it's dark, provocative and a good collab. lyrically lots of images in this one - a music video to these words wouldn't be hard at all. I like how the title doesn't show up until the bridge - go you rebels!!

What a cliff hanger metaphor for a relationship! Really smart lyrics and strong delivery. I like the melody line a lot - it adds depth that matches the darkness and potential demise of a relationship.

Wow, that’s an incredibly powerful song! Chorus both lyrically and musically is fantastic, I absolutely love the chord structure that you got going there Alex. The song is just great!

This lyric is very good. I like that feeling of standing on the edge, tipping on the brink and I agree with Metalfoot that it is constructed very well. I'm glad it was musicified.
