Intro -x2-: Gadd9 C Bm7 C
 
     Gadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
       Em
What should I bring or leave behind
      C
From who I was
    D
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Verse 1:
Gadd9                     Em
I still haven't packed my bags
             Gadd9
It's time to go
                      Em
And I could not care less
              C
So now, I'll miss the train
                 D
a walk's still progress made
  D                              Gadd9 Em
I just won't arrive quite as fast
 
Verse 2:
Gadd9             Em
I'm thinking way back
             Gadd9
To where I'm from
                Em
To the things I had
        C
I feel I've forgotten something
                    D
Iâm sure that it's probably nothing
            D                          Gadd9 D
But that's based more on fear than on fact
 
Chorus:
     Gadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Em
Between two states- I'm petrified
    Em           Gadd9
To push ahead or turn back homewardly
 
Verse 3:
Gadd9               Em
I'm a shadow of the past
                Gadd9
The shadow of a boy
                    Em
a boy who couldn't last
                        C
They said: "Son, don't change"
           D           D                     Gadd9 Em
And I keep hoping they won't see how much I have
 
Verse 4:
   Gadd9                    Em
a feeling's not a thing you own
              Gadd9
But it can be lost
                  Em
I just want to be home
                         C
'Cause home's where the heart is
             D
And when I departed
     D                      Gadd9 D
I might've abandoned them both
 
Chorus:
     Gadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Em
Between two states-- I'm petrified
      Gadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
      Em
What should I bring or leave behind
     C
From who I was
    D                  Bm7
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Bridge:
     D                    Gbm                Gadd9
I'd like to say: "I'm the same person from yesterday
            D
Nothing's changed"
 
         D             Gbm                 Gadd9
'Cause yesterday I was eager to see what awaited
             D
I wasn't jaded
 

     D   Gbm Bm7
But no!
            Gadd9
I can't go back
 
D
Youth seemed sweeter
                Gbm                                   Bm7
But if I could return, all I've learned would be forfeit
           Gadd9  D Gbm Bm7 Gadd9 D Gbm Bm7 Gadd9
I won't go back
 
Outro:
     D                            Gbm
I'm followed by the borderline as I pace forward in my life
 Bm7                   Gadd9                       D
Seeking the times I'll long for once they leave me
