This song is dedicated to all the poor and suffering children in the world.
A reporting about poor children in Africa was the inspiration to write this song.

lyrics

“Standing At The Edge Of Life“


I’ve seen a million faces suffering all their life.
Children are born, they are just bound to die.
All their life long dreaming of good, all their life long no love, no food.

Standing at the edge of life, their time is running out.
Standing at the edge of life, their backs against the wall.
Standing at the edge of life, their time’s tickin’ away.
Standing at the edge of life, it seems there is no way out.

And while some others stand aside and look,
the captives of injustice lost in the dephts of the abyss.
All their life long praying to God,
their look to heaven above, dying doesn’t mean a lot.

Standing at the edge of life, their time is running out.
Standing at the edge of life, their backs against the wall.
Standing at the edge of life, their time’s tickin’ away.
Standing at the edge of life, it seems there is no way out.

And some others standing on the brink,
their pockets full of money that’s all there is they think.
All their life long praying to themselves, a million miles away from reality.

Standing at the edge of life, their time is running out.
Standing at the edge of life, their backs against the wall.
Standing at the edge of life, their time’s tickin’ away.
Standing at the edge of life, it seems there is no way out.
