I have heard that in a movie and a few songs. What does the edge of glory mean?

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. See the FAQ for guidance on how to improve it.
On the "edge of glory" can mean that something is on the verge of doing something great or "glorious".
Another meaning, although I will not be able to back this one up, is when someone is on the verge of death.
