“The Edge of Glory” is a song by American singer Lady Gaga from her second studio album, Born This Way (2011). The song was released on May 9, 2011, as the album’s third single. Initially released as one of two promotional singles for Born This Way, it shortly became a single following its success in digital outlets worldwide. The song was written and produced by Gaga and Fernando Garibay, and is a pop, electro-rock, and disco song that speaks of the last moments of life.[2] According to Gaga, lyrical inspiration came from the death of her grandfather, who died in September 2010. Along with a saxophone solo played by Clarence Clemons, the melody of the song resembles much of the musical works of Bruce Springsteen and contains several qualities similar to that of 1980s adult contemporary musical works.

“The Edge of Glory” received critical acclaim, with many reviewers deeming it as an album highlight. Much of the praise went to the song’s chorus and the musical production. Reviewers also complimented Gaga’s vocals, describing it as “soulful”. The song was a commercial success worldwide, charting in the top 10 in several major music markets, including Australia, Belgium, Canada, New Zealand, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom. In the United States, it peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Gaga’s tenth consecutive top-10 single in the United States.

A music video for the song was filmed in late May, co-directed by the singer and her production team, Haus of Gaga. The video is simple in contrast to much of Gaga’s past work and portrays her dancing on a fire escape and walking on a lonely street. Differences include the lack of intricate choreography and backup dancers, as well as using only one outfit designed by Versace. Critics praised the simplicity of the video while comparing it to the works of Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson and Madonna. Live performances of the song include the tenth season of American Idol, the 2011 MuchMusic Video Awards, Good Morning America’s “Summer Concert Series”, and many of the singer’s concert tours.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
There ain’t no reason you and me should be alone
Tonight, yeah, baby
Tonight, yeah, baby
But I got a reason that you-hoo should take me home tonight
I need a man that thinks it right when it’s so wrong
Tonight, yeah, baby
Tonight, yeah, baby
Right on the limit’s where we know we both belong, tonight

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s hot to feel the rush
To brush the dangerous
I’m gonna run right to, to the edge with you
Where we can both fall far in love

[Chorus]
I’m on the edge of glory
And I’m hangin’ on a moment of truth
Out on the edge of glory
And I’m hangin’ on a moment with you
I’m on the edge
The edge, the edge, the edge
The edge, the edge, the edge
I’m on the edge of glory
And I’m hangin’ on a moment with you
I’m on the edge with you

[Verse 2]
Another shot, before we kiss the other side
Tonight, yeah, baby
Tonight, yeah, baby
I’m on the edge of something final we call life, tonight
(Alright! Alright!)
Put on your shades, ’cause I’ll be dancing in the flames
Tonight, yeah, baby
Tonight, yeah, baby
It isn’t hell if everybody knows my name, tonight
(Alright! Alright!)

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s hot to feel the rush
To brush the dangerous
I’m gonna run right to, to the edge with you
Where we can both fall far in love

[Chorus]
I’m on the edge of glory
And I’m hangin’ on a moment of truth
Out on the edge of glory
And I’m hangin’ on a moment with you
I’m on the edge
The edge, the edge, the edge
The edge, the edge, the edge
I’m on the edge of glory
And I’m hangin’ on a moment with you
I’m on the edge with you
I’m on the edge with you
I’m on the edge with you

[Saxophone Solo]

[Chorus]
I’m on the edge of glory
And I’m hangin’ on a moment of truth
Out on the edge of glory
And I’m hangin’ on a moment with you
I’m on the edge
The edge, the edge, the edge
The edge, the edge, the edge
I’m on the edge of glory
And I’m hangin’ on a moment with you
I’m on the edge with you, with you, with you, with you, with you
I’m on the edge with you, with you, with you, with you, with you
I’m on the edge with you, with you, with you, with you, with you
I’m on the edge with you, with you, with you, with you, with you
