Edge of a Cloud

I've been living on the edge of a cloud, for 6 months and 7 days
But all the effort I've been holding on with, it doesn't go both ways,
Oh, and what's a girl to do when her man can't hold on, but can't let go

I've been living with a newfound joy, for 6 days and 7 hours
And every time I try to hide it, I remember his smile
Oh, but I keep telling myself to be careful with my heart this time

I've been living at the top of the world, with no cares for 18 days.
He treats me like a queen, and buys me every shiny thing.
Oh, but I can't help but feel that it seems too good to be true

But appearances can only last for so long,
Before the truth comes crashing down,
You know exactly how to show a girl what she wants to see,
But I will never know you

I've been living at a steady pace, no complaints, for 2 months and 7 days
And all the reasons for the tears, with him, I can erase
I've never felt so tied down, but with the fear of drifting out, I guess I can't complain

But appearances can only last for so long,
Before the truth comes crashing down,
You know exactly how to show a girl what she wants to see
But I will never know you

I've been living on the edge of a cloud, for 6 months and 7 days
But all the effort I've been holding on with, it doesn't go both ways,
Oh, and what's a girl to do when her man can't hold on, but can't let go

He can't let go
I can't let go...

Understand

You don't know it, but you have my heart, And I'm begging you please be careful,
'Cause I've tried to tell you but you wouldn't listen.

What you don't understand is how much I care, how much I care,
What I don't understand is how much you don't, how much you won't.

I know that you think that I don't mean a word that I say, but I really do,
And I know that you'll break me, but I can't help myself, I can't help it.

What you don't understand is how much I care, how much I care,
What I don't understand is how much you don't, how much you never will.

And I know, that you'll break me,
I know that you'll get to me,
I know that you'll never see me like I see you.

You don't know it, but you have my heart,
'Cause I've tried to tell you, but you wouldn't listen...

Biography:

Canadian songwriter and piano-based musician Mason Chance takes influence from a wide variety of genres to create his unique blend of jazz and pop music.

Making his home in Toronto ON, Chance is currently studying in Humber College’s jazz program. He quit piano lessons as a child but later taught himself to play instead. Soon he was taming instrument after instrument, including guitar, bass, autoharp, drums and percussion, and just about any other instrument he could get his hands on. Some of Chance’s greatest influences include Stevie Wonder, Donald Fagen, Jamie Cullum, and Gavin Castleton, but he credits an album by American singer-songwriter and record producer Ben Folds for his return to the piano at the age of 16.

Chance’s performance history includes many performances as a soloist and as a bandleader throughout high school and into college. Chance also has a passion for film and photography, allowing him to create and edit his own videos in his richly stocked home studio complete with keyboards, synths, percussion instruments and a competent selection of recording gear and software. As an embracer of technology, he delivers frequent online content in the form of YouTube videos and livestreams while also performing around Toronto at festivals such as Big on Bloor and Toronto Undergraduate Jazz Festival and in venues like the Rivoli, the Free Times Cafe, and 120 Diner.

Chance released his debut EP, ‘Lost,’ on June 9th, 2017.
