Intro -x2-: Ebadd9 Ab Gm7 Ab
 
     Ebadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
       Cm
What should I bring or leave behind
      Ab
From who I was
    Bb
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Verse 1:
Ebadd9                     Cm
I still haven't packed my bags
             Ebadd9
It's time to go
                      Cm
And I could not care less
              Ab
So now, I'll miss the train
                 Bb
a walk's still progress made
  Bb                              Ebadd9 Cm
I just won't arrive quite as fast
 
Verse 2:
Ebadd9             Cm
I'm thinking way back
             Ebadd9
To where I'm from
                Cm
To the things I had
        Ab
I feel I've forgotten something
                    Bb
Iâm sure that it's probably nothing
            Bb                          Ebadd9 Bb
But that's based more on fear than on fact
 
Chorus:
     Ebadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Cm
Between two states- I'm petrified
    Cm           Ebadd9
To push ahead or turn back homewardly
 
Verse 3:
Ebadd9               Cm
I'm a shadow of the past
                Ebadd9
The shadow of a boy
                    Cm
a boy who couldn't last
                        Ab
They said: "Son, don't change"
           Bb           Bb                     Ebadd9 Cm
And I keep hoping they won't see how much I have
 
Verse 4:
   Ebadd9                    Cm
a feeling's not a thing you own
              Ebadd9
But it can be lost
                  Cm
I just want to be home
                         Ab
'Cause home's where the heart is
             Bb
And when I departed
     Bb                      Ebadd9 Bb
I might've abandoned them both
 
Chorus:
     Ebadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Cm
Between two states-- I'm petrified
      Ebadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
      Cm
What should I bring or leave behind
     Ab
From who I was
    Bb                  Gm7
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Bridge:
     Bb                    Dm                Ebadd9
I'd like to say: "I'm the same person from yesterday
            Bb
Nothing's changed"
 
         Bb             Dm                 Ebadd9
'Cause yesterday I was eager to see what awaited
             Bb
I wasn't jaded
 

     Bb   Dm Gm7
But no!
            Ebadd9
I can't go back
 
Bb
Youth seemed sweeter
                Dm                                   Gm7
But if I could return, all I've learned would be forfeit
           Ebadd9  Bb Dm Gm7 Ebadd9 Bb Dm Gm7 Ebadd9
I won't go back
 
Outro:
     Bb                            Dm
I'm followed by the borderline as I pace forward in my life
 Gm7                   Ebadd9                       Bb
Seeking the times I'll long for once they leave me
