Intro -x2-: Aadd9 D Dbm7 D
 
     Aadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
       Gbm
What should I bring or leave behind
      D
From who I was
    E
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Verse 1:
Aadd9                     Gbm
I still haven't packed my bags
             Aadd9
It's time to go
                      Gbm
And I could not care less
              D
So now, I'll miss the train
                 E
a walk's still progress made
  E                              Aadd9 Gbm
I just won't arrive quite as fast
 
Verse 2:
Aadd9             Gbm
I'm thinking way back
             Aadd9
To where I'm from
                Gbm
To the things I had
        D
I feel I've forgotten something
                    E
Iâm sure that it's probably nothing
            E                          Aadd9 E
But that's based more on fear than on fact
 
Chorus:
     Aadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Gbm
Between two states- I'm petrified
    Gbm           Aadd9
To push ahead or turn back homewardly
 
Verse 3:
Aadd9               Gbm
I'm a shadow of the past
                Aadd9
The shadow of a boy
                    Gbm
a boy who couldn't last
                        D
They said: "Son, don't change"
           E           E                     Aadd9 Gbm
And I keep hoping they won't see how much I have
 
Verse 4:
   Aadd9                    Gbm
a feeling's not a thing you own
              Aadd9
But it can be lost
                  Gbm
I just want to be home
                         D
'Cause home's where the heart is
             E
And when I departed
     E                      Aadd9 E
I might've abandoned them both
 
Chorus:
     Aadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Gbm
Between two states-- I'm petrified
      Aadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
      Gbm
What should I bring or leave behind
     D
From who I was
    E                  Dbm7
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Bridge:
     E                    Abm                Aadd9
I'd like to say: "I'm the same person from yesterday
            E
Nothing's changed"
 
         E             Abm                 Aadd9
'Cause yesterday I was eager to see what awaited
             E
I wasn't jaded
 

     E   Abm Dbm7
But no!
            Aadd9
I can't go back
 
E
Youth seemed sweeter
                Abm                                   Dbm7
But if I could return, all I've learned would be forfeit
           Aadd9  E Abm Dbm7 Aadd9 E Abm Dbm7 Aadd9
I won't go back
 
Outro:
     E                            Abm
I'm followed by the borderline as I pace forward in my life
 Dbm7                   Aadd9                       E
Seeking the times I'll long for once they leave me
