Intro -x2-: Fadd9 Bb Am7 Bb
 
     Fadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
       Dm
What should I bring or leave behind
      Bb
From who I was
    C
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Verse 1:
Fadd9                     Dm
I still haven't packed my bags
             Fadd9
It's time to go
                      Dm
And I could not care less
              Bb
So now, I'll miss the train
                 C
a walk's still progress made
  C                              Fadd9 Dm
I just won't arrive quite as fast
 
Verse 2:
Fadd9             Dm
I'm thinking way back
             Fadd9
To where I'm from
                Dm
To the things I had
        Bb
I feel I've forgotten something
                    C
Iâm sure that it's probably nothing
            C                          Fadd9 C
But that's based more on fear than on fact
 
Chorus:
     Fadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Dm
Between two states- I'm petrified
    Dm           Fadd9
To push ahead or turn back homewardly
 
Verse 3:
Fadd9               Dm
I'm a shadow of the past
                Fadd9
The shadow of a boy
                    Dm
a boy who couldn't last
                        Bb
They said: "Son, don't change"
           C           C                     Fadd9 Dm
And I keep hoping they won't see how much I have
 
Verse 4:
   Fadd9                    Dm
a feeling's not a thing you own
              Fadd9
But it can be lost
                  Dm
I just want to be home
                         Bb
'Cause home's where the heart is
             C
And when I departed
     C                      Fadd9 C
I might've abandoned them both
 
Chorus:
     Fadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Dm
Between two states-- I'm petrified
      Fadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
      Dm
What should I bring or leave behind
     Bb
From who I was
    C                  Am7
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Bridge:
     C                    Em                Fadd9
I'd like to say: "I'm the same person from yesterday
            C
Nothing's changed"
 
         C             Em                 Fadd9
'Cause yesterday I was eager to see what awaited
             C
I wasn't jaded
 

     C   Em Am7
But no!
            Fadd9
I can't go back
 
C
Youth seemed sweeter
                Em                                   Am7
But if I could return, all I've learned would be forfeit
           Fadd9  C Em Am7 Fadd9 C Em Am7 Fadd9
I won't go back
 
Outro:
     C                            Em
I'm followed by the borderline as I pace forward in my life
 Am7                   Fadd9                       C
Seeking the times I'll long for once they leave me
