Razor's Edge

Story Behind The Song

I wrote this about my relationship with cancer, treating the cancer as if it were a living, breathing entity, so it would transpose to those who didn't have cancer. We're both going into surgery with only one survivor, although I'm haunted by the concern

You know I love the sun
Out where I can see all the highs and lows
While you prefer the cooler shadows
You know I love to live
I do it very well
While you weigh your options, cautious, watching
So far unfulfilled

Razor?s edge
For good or ill
All that chrome could cut us to the bone
It?s half the thrill

A brilliant, twisted dance
Not yet quite composed
This fragile balance keeps you hidden
Leaving me exposed


I can feel you near, a cool breath on my cheek
While I live and breathe
You watch and weave the net
That will catch me.
