Intro -x2-: Gbadd9 B Bbm7 B
 
     Gbadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
       Ebm
What should I bring or leave behind
      B
From who I was
    Db
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Verse 1:
Gbadd9                     Ebm
I still haven't packed my bags
             Gbadd9
It's time to go
                      Ebm
And I could not care less
              B
So now, I'll miss the train
                 Db
a walk's still progress made
  Db                              Gbadd9 Ebm
I just won't arrive quite as fast
 
Verse 2:
Gbadd9             Ebm
I'm thinking way back
             Gbadd9
To where I'm from
                Ebm
To the things I had
        B
I feel I've forgotten something
                    Db
Iâm sure that it's probably nothing
            Db                          Gbadd9 Db
But that's based more on fear than on fact
 
Chorus:
     Gbadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Ebm
Between two states- I'm petrified
    Ebm           Gbadd9
To push ahead or turn back homewardly
 
Verse 3:
Gbadd9               Ebm
I'm a shadow of the past
                Gbadd9
The shadow of a boy
                    Ebm
a boy who couldn't last
                        B
They said: "Son, don't change"
           Db           Db                     Gbadd9 Ebm
And I keep hoping they won't see how much I have
 
Verse 4:
   Gbadd9                    Ebm
a feeling's not a thing you own
              Gbadd9
But it can be lost
                  Ebm
I just want to be home
                         B
'Cause home's where the heart is
             Db
And when I departed
     Db                      Gbadd9 Db
I might've abandoned them both
 
Chorus:
     Gbadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Ebm
Between two states-- I'm petrified
      Gbadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
      Ebm
What should I bring or leave behind
     B
From who I was
    Db                  Bbm7
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Bridge:
     Db                    Fm                Gbadd9
I'd like to say: "I'm the same person from yesterday
            Db
Nothing's changed"
 
         Db             Fm                 Gbadd9
'Cause yesterday I was eager to see what awaited
             Db
I wasn't jaded
 

     Db   Fm Bbm7
But no!
            Gbadd9
I can't go back
 
Db
Youth seemed sweeter
                Fm                                   Bbm7
But if I could return, all I've learned would be forfeit
           Gbadd9  Db Fm Bbm7 Gbadd9 Db Fm Bbm7 Gbadd9
I won't go back
 
Outro:
     Db                            Fm
I'm followed by the borderline as I pace forward in my life
 Bbm7                   Gbadd9                       Db
Seeking the times I'll long for once they leave me
