Intro -x2-: Bbadd9 Eb Dm7 Eb
 
     Bbadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
       Gm
What should I bring or leave behind
      Eb
From who I was
    F
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Verse 1:
Bbadd9                     Gm
I still haven't packed my bags
             Bbadd9
It's time to go
                      Gm
And I could not care less
              Eb
So now, I'll miss the train
                 F
a walk's still progress made
  F                              Bbadd9 Gm
I just won't arrive quite as fast
 
Verse 2:
Bbadd9             Gm
I'm thinking way back
             Bbadd9
To where I'm from
                Gm
To the things I had
        Eb
I feel I've forgotten something
                    F
Iâm sure that it's probably nothing
            F                          Bbadd9 F
But that's based more on fear than on fact
 
Chorus:
     Bbadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Gm
Between two states- I'm petrified
    Gm           Bbadd9
To push ahead or turn back homewardly
 
Verse 3:
Bbadd9               Gm
I'm a shadow of the past
                Bbadd9
The shadow of a boy
                    Gm
a boy who couldn't last
                        Eb
They said: "Son, don't change"
           F           F                     Bbadd9 Gm
And I keep hoping they won't see how much I have
 
Verse 4:
   Bbadd9                    Gm
a feeling's not a thing you own
              Bbadd9
But it can be lost
                  Gm
I just want to be home
                         Eb
'Cause home's where the heart is
             F
And when I departed
     F                      Bbadd9 F
I might've abandoned them both
 
Chorus:
     Bbadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Gm
Between two states-- I'm petrified
      Bbadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
      Gm
What should I bring or leave behind
     Eb
From who I was
    F                  Dm7
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Bridge:
     F                    Am                Bbadd9
I'd like to say: "I'm the same person from yesterday
            F
Nothing's changed"
 
         F             Am                 Bbadd9
'Cause yesterday I was eager to see what awaited
             F
I wasn't jaded
 

     F   Am Dm7
But no!
            Bbadd9
I can't go back
 
F
Youth seemed sweeter
                Am                                   Dm7
But if I could return, all I've learned would be forfeit
           Bbadd9  F Am Dm7 Bbadd9 F Am Dm7 Bbadd9
I won't go back
 
Outro:
     F                            Am
I'm followed by the borderline as I pace forward in my life
 Dm7                   Bbadd9                       F
Seeking the times I'll long for once they leave me
