Rockin' Rich Lynch: SONG - Vague To The Max

Nashville-based musician Rockin' Rich Lynch had only been in town a short while when he went for a ride on the famed Natchez Trace Parkway. While crossing the valley in Franklin he decided to walk across the chasm courtesy of the concrete double arch span provided by the Natchez Parkway Bridge. "I didn't like it," Lynch vividly recalled. "I felt vertigo, got dizzy, and fell to my knees. Something about the experience triggered my long-dormant fear of heights." Having come away a bit shaken from the encounter Lynch decided to do some research. "My first thought was 'how many people have jumped off of this thing' and I soon found out," Lynch added. A quick search on the web revealed that this particular bridge has become notorious in the region. But, it was one story that popped up from the Nashville Scene that really hit home. This song tells that story.


LYRICS (Words and Music by Rich Lynch)

Verse:
Well hello, hello, hello, Dolly
In this life
I know you cared
Well - goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, Dolly
Where did he go?
There's a song in the air

Chorus:
Flying Over the Edge
Now I look down
and my future looks vague
I should've stayed on the ledge
But I took it too far
and I can't be saved

Verse:
Well hey there, hey there, hey there, momma
I'm alive in the bargain bin
at the discount store
and I'm sorry for all that damn drama
But, I just can't stand the pain anymore

Chorus:
Flying Over the Edge
Now I look down
and my future looks vague
I should've stayed on the ledge
But I took it too far
and I can't be saved

Break:
Yeah, I feel vague to the max
after everything that we've been through
Yeah, I feel vague to the max
some dreams, just don't come true
Yeah, I feel vague to the max
if you were him, what would you do

Verse:
And even now as the lights go out
you can know that
you're not alone
And it comes crashing down
with a scream and shout
an imploding star
once brightly shone

Chorus:
Flying Over the Edge
Now I look down
and my future looks vague
I should've stayed on the ledge
But I took it too far
and I can't be saved
