living on the edge – Aerosmith

June 23, 2021

sitting on the front stoop
looking through the flowers in the garden
at bright skies and fluffy clouds
Living On The Edge

While I was doing a little work in the gardens directly in front of the house, this song by Aerosmith popped into my head – so I thought I’d share it with you today… It was too hot to do too much work at the time I was working, but something is better than nothing. Right?

There’s somethin’ wrong with the world today
I don’t know what it is
Something’s wrong with our eyes

We’re seein’ things in a different way
And God knows it ain’t his
It sure ain’t no surprise

Livin’ on the edge
Livin’ on the edge
Livin’ on the edge
Livin’ on the edge

There’s somethin’ wrong with the world today
The light bulb’s gettin dim
There’s meltdown in the sky

If you can judge a wise man
By the color of his skin
Then mister you’re a better man than I

[Chorus:]

Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself from fallin’
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself at all
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t stop yourself from fallin’
Livin’ on the edge

Tell me what you think about your sit-u-a-tion
Complication – aggravation
Is getting to you

If chicken little tells you that the sky is fallin’
Even if it wasn’t would you still come crawlin’
Back again
I bet you would my friend
Again & again & again & again & again

Tell me what you think about your sit-u-a-tion
Complication – aggravation
Is getting to you

If chicken little tells you that the sky is fallin’
Even if it was would you still come crawlin’
Back again
I bet you would my friend
Again & again & again & again

Something right with the world today
And everybody knows it’s wrong
But we can tell ’em no or we could let it go
But I’d would rather be a hanging on

[Chorus]

Livin’ on the edge
Livin’ on the edge
Livin’ on the edge
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Chorus]

Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself
You can’t help yourself
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself at all
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself
You can’t help yourself
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself
You can’t help yourself
Livin’ on the edge
You can’t help yourself from fallin’

Why is it, so many songs from “yesterday” seem to also apply to today? I know I’m not the only one that sees it… or feels it…

Aerosmith
Quiet Riot
Simon and Garfunkle

plus more I can’t think of right now

hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!

Life is so much simpler when you stop explaining yourself to people and just do what works for you

Lord, give us the courage to speak our mind, to be honest and bold about our feelings, no matter who, or how many we go against.

take care

  1. I’ve thought about this a lot. We keep on hearing what a great future we’re going to have. If we could just get over the past and forget history and all our differences we could have such a New World.

    But yet, we fantasize and reminisce about the past…..

    • The past is part of what makes us who we are…we shouldn’t dwell on it but we can’t forget it either.

      It might be important to know “who” wants us to forget the past?

      • I feel very strongly rooted to my past. It grounds me in the present and helps me as I move forward. “They” want me to be ashamed of my past and discard it. “They” also have been libeling my past for decades.

      • “They” want me to be ashamed for being white, “they” want me to be ashamed for loving my country – the good and the bad, “they” want me to be ashamed for not taking the jab or wearing a mask…it goes on and on…
        I’m not ashamed of who I am, where I come from, nor for doing what I do/don’t do.
        It’s all part of the game/plan…most of us, I think, aren’t falling for it. I hope!
