Intro -x2-: Cadd9 F Em7 F
 
     Cadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
       Am
What should I bring or leave behind
      F
From who I was
    G
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Verse 1:
Cadd9                     Am
I still haven't packed my bags
             Cadd9
It's time to go
                      Am
And I could not care less
              F
So now, I'll miss the train
                 G
a walk's still progress made
  G                              Cadd9 Am
I just won't arrive quite as fast
 
Verse 2:
Cadd9             Am
I'm thinking way back
             Cadd9
To where I'm from
                Am
To the things I had
        F
I feel I've forgotten something
                    G
Iâm sure that it's probably nothing
            G                          Cadd9 G
But that's based more on fear than on fact
 
Chorus:
     Cadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Am
Between two states- I'm petrified
    Am           Cadd9
To push ahead or turn back homewardly
 
Verse 3:
Cadd9               Am
I'm a shadow of the past
                Cadd9
The shadow of a boy
                    Am
a boy who couldn't last
                        F
They said: "Son, don't change"
           G           G                     Cadd9 Am
And I keep hoping they won't see how much I have
 
Verse 4:
   Cadd9                    Am
a feeling's not a thing you own
              Cadd9
But it can be lost
                  Am
I just want to be home
                         F
'Cause home's where the heart is
             G
And when I departed
     G                      Cadd9 G
I might've abandoned them both
 
Chorus:
     Cadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Am
Between two states-- I'm petrified
      Cadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
      Am
What should I bring or leave behind
     F
From who I was
    G                  Em7
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Bridge:
     G                    Bm                Cadd9
I'd like to say: "I'm the same person from yesterday
            G
Nothing's changed"
 
         G             Bm                 Cadd9
'Cause yesterday I was eager to see what awaited
             G
I wasn't jaded
 

     G   Bm Em7
But no!
            Cadd9
I can't go back
 
G
Youth seemed sweeter
                Bm                                   Em7
But if I could return, all I've learned would be forfeit
           Cadd9  G Bm Em7 Cadd9 G Bm Em7 Cadd9
I won't go back
 
Outro:
     G                            Bm
I'm followed by the borderline as I pace forward in my life
 Em7                   Cadd9                       G
Seeking the times I'll long for once they leave me
