Intro -x2-: Abadd9 Db Cm7 Db
 
     Abadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
       Fm
What should I bring or leave behind
      Db
From who I was
    Eb
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Verse 1:
Abadd9                     Fm
I still haven't packed my bags
             Abadd9
It's time to go
                      Fm
And I could not care less
              Db
So now, I'll miss the train
                 Eb
a walk's still progress made
  Eb                              Abadd9 Fm
I just won't arrive quite as fast
 
Verse 2:
Abadd9             Fm
I'm thinking way back
             Abadd9
To where I'm from
                Fm
To the things I had
        Db
I feel I've forgotten something
                    Eb
Iâm sure that it's probably nothing
            Eb                          Abadd9 Eb
But that's based more on fear than on fact
 
Chorus:
     Abadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Fm
Between two states- I'm petrified
    Fm           Abadd9
To push ahead or turn back homewardly
 
Verse 3:
Abadd9               Fm
I'm a shadow of the past
                Abadd9
The shadow of a boy
                    Fm
a boy who couldn't last
                        Db
They said: "Son, don't change"
           Eb           Eb                     Abadd9 Fm
And I keep hoping they won't see how much I have
 
Verse 4:
   Abadd9                    Fm
a feeling's not a thing you own
              Abadd9
But it can be lost
                  Fm
I just want to be home
                         Db
'Cause home's where the heart is
             Eb
And when I departed
     Eb                      Abadd9 Eb
I might've abandoned them both
 
Chorus:
     Abadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Fm
Between two states-- I'm petrified
      Abadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
      Fm
What should I bring or leave behind
     Db
From who I was
    Eb                  Cm7
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Bridge:
     Eb                    Gm                Abadd9
I'd like to say: "I'm the same person from yesterday
            Eb
Nothing's changed"
 
         Eb             Gm                 Abadd9
'Cause yesterday I was eager to see what awaited
             Eb
I wasn't jaded
 

     Eb   Gm Cm7
But no!
            Abadd9
I can't go back
 
Eb
Youth seemed sweeter
                Gm                                   Cm7
But if I could return, all I've learned would be forfeit
           Abadd9  Eb Gm Cm7 Abadd9 Eb Gm Cm7 Abadd9
I won't go back
 
Outro:
     Eb                            Gm
I'm followed by the borderline as I pace forward in my life
 Cm7                   Abadd9                       Eb
Seeking the times I'll long for once they leave me
