You've seen me looking down before
The chance to question your ???
Just look around, you'll see
There's nothing wrong with me
I'll go my own way
And I'll take you

On the edge
Take a chance
Risk it all
Deep inside
Find it all

(Let go)
Here's your chance; it's now or never
(Let go)
Just look deep inside

It looks like rainclouds growing near
Sometimes it seems I'll never win
Just look around, you'll see
There's nothing wrong with me
I'll go my own way
And I'll take you

On the edge
Take a chance
Risk it all
Deep inside
Find it all

(Let go)
Here's your chance; it's now or never
(Let go)
Just look deep inside
(Let go)
Here's your chance; it's now or never
(Let go)
Just look deep inside

On the edge
Take a chance
Risk it all
Deep inside
Find it all

(Let go)
Here's your chance; it's now or never
(Let go)
Just look deep inside
(Let go)
Here's your chance; it's now or never
(Let go)

Ooh, look deep inside
Look deep inside
Look deep inside
