On the Cusp of Something Greater

Back at home lazing like a bum
Like the doctor told me to do
A broken record sings its stilted tune
Never getting onto something new

Wonder what it's going to be like
When I'm back on my feet again
On the cusp of something greater now
And I feel like I could use a friend

Holding onto life
The way it used to be
Make it so I gotta let go
So won't you be a friend of mine?

Now she's heading to another place
So far away I couldn't hope to go
Do I take her with me when I've got
Nowhere to call my own?

On the cusp of something greater now
Some bigger than I've ever known
Life's not turning out the way I planned
And I'm scared I'm gonna be alone

Don't let me let this go
I'm not ready to advance
Baby, cling to me though I cannot see
How we're gonna make it out alive

I'm doping up with TV and games
To escape the grim reality
I wish I could get up and run
Somewhere that's nice and clear to see

I wanna stare out at the setting sun
Sinking down beneath the waves of trees
On the cusp of something greater now
It's a lie that I may believe

It's almost time to go
And never look on back
Won't you take my hand, baby it'd be grand
If you'd always stay a friend of mine
