Intro -x2-: Badd9 E Ebm7 E
 
     Badd9
I'm standing on the borderline
       Abm
What should I bring or leave behind
      E
From who I was
    Gb
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Verse 1:
Badd9                     Abm
I still haven't packed my bags
             Badd9
It's time to go
                      Abm
And I could not care less
              E
So now, I'll miss the train
                 Gb
a walk's still progress made
  Gb                              Badd9 Abm
I just won't arrive quite as fast
 
Verse 2:
Badd9             Abm
I'm thinking way back
             Badd9
To where I'm from
                Abm
To the things I had
        E
I feel I've forgotten something
                    Gb
Iâm sure that it's probably nothing
            Gb                          Badd9 Gb
But that's based more on fear than on fact
 
Chorus:
     Badd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Abm
Between two states- I'm petrified
    Abm           Badd9
To push ahead or turn back homewardly
 
Verse 3:
Badd9               Abm
I'm a shadow of the past
                Badd9
The shadow of a boy
                    Abm
a boy who couldn't last
                        E
They said: "Son, don't change"
           Gb           Gb                     Badd9 Abm
And I keep hoping they won't see how much I have
 
Verse 4:
   Badd9                    Abm
a feeling's not a thing you own
              Badd9
But it can be lost
                  Abm
I just want to be home
                         E
'Cause home's where the heart is
             Gb
And when I departed
     Gb                      Badd9 Gb
I might've abandoned them both
 
Chorus:
     Badd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Abm
Between two states-- I'm petrified
      Badd9
I'm standing on the borderline
      Abm
What should I bring or leave behind
     E
From who I was
    Gb                  Ebm7
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Bridge:
     Gb                    Bbm                Badd9
I'd like to say: "I'm the same person from yesterday
            Gb
Nothing's changed"
 
         Gb             Bbm                 Badd9
'Cause yesterday I was eager to see what awaited
             Gb
I wasn't jaded
 

     Gb   Bbm Ebm7
But no!
            Badd9
I can't go back
 
Gb
Youth seemed sweeter
                Bbm                                   Ebm7
But if I could return, all I've learned would be forfeit
           Badd9  Gb Bbm Ebm7 Badd9 Gb Bbm Ebm7 Badd9
I won't go back
 
Outro:
     Gb                            Bbm
I'm followed by the borderline as I pace forward in my life
 Ebm7                   Badd9                       Gb
Seeking the times I'll long for once they leave me
