Intro -x2-: Dadd9 G Gbm7 G
 
     Dadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
       Bm
What should I bring or leave behind
      G
From who I was
    A
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Verse 1:
Dadd9                     Bm
I still haven't packed my bags
             Dadd9
It's time to go
                      Bm
And I could not care less
              G
So now, I'll miss the train
                 A
a walk's still progress made
  A                              Dadd9 Bm
I just won't arrive quite as fast
 
Verse 2:
Dadd9             Bm
I'm thinking way back
             Dadd9
To where I'm from
                Bm
To the things I had
        G
I feel I've forgotten something
                    A
Iâm sure that it's probably nothing
            A                          Dadd9 A
But that's based more on fear than on fact
 
Chorus:
     Dadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Bm
Between two states- I'm petrified
    Bm           Dadd9
To push ahead or turn back homewardly
 
Verse 3:
Dadd9               Bm
I'm a shadow of the past
                Dadd9
The shadow of a boy
                    Bm
a boy who couldn't last
                        G
They said: "Son, don't change"
           A           A                     Dadd9 Bm
And I keep hoping they won't see how much I have
 
Verse 4:
   Dadd9                    Bm
a feeling's not a thing you own
              Dadd9
But it can be lost
                  Bm
I just want to be home
                         G
'Cause home's where the heart is
             A
And when I departed
     A                      Dadd9 A
I might've abandoned them both
 
Chorus:
     Dadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Bm
Between two states-- I'm petrified
      Dadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
      Bm
What should I bring or leave behind
     G
From who I was
    A                  Gbm7
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Bridge:
     A                    Dbm                Dadd9
I'd like to say: "I'm the same person from yesterday
            A
Nothing's changed"
 
         A             Dbm                 Dadd9
'Cause yesterday I was eager to see what awaited
             A
I wasn't jaded
 

     A   Dbm Gbm7
But no!
            Dadd9
I can't go back
 
A
Youth seemed sweeter
                Dbm                                   Gbm7
But if I could return, all I've learned would be forfeit
           Dadd9  A Dbm Gbm7 Dadd9 A Dbm Gbm7 Dadd9
I won't go back
 
Outro:
     A                            Dbm
I'm followed by the borderline as I pace forward in my life
 Gbm7                   Dadd9                       A
Seeking the times I'll long for once they leave me
