Intro -x2-: Dbadd9 Gb Fm7 Gb
 
     Dbadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
       Bbm
What should I bring or leave behind
      Gb
From who I was
    Ab
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Verse 1:
Dbadd9                     Bbm
I still haven't packed my bags
             Dbadd9
It's time to go
                      Bbm
And I could not care less
              Gb
So now, I'll miss the train
                 Ab
a walk's still progress made
  Ab                              Dbadd9 Bbm
I just won't arrive quite as fast
 
Verse 2:
Dbadd9             Bbm
I'm thinking way back
             Dbadd9
To where I'm from
                Bbm
To the things I had
        Gb
I feel I've forgotten something
                    Ab
Iâm sure that it's probably nothing
            Ab                          Dbadd9 Ab
But that's based more on fear than on fact
 
Chorus:
     Dbadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Bbm
Between two states- I'm petrified
    Bbm           Dbadd9
To push ahead or turn back homewardly
 
Verse 3:
Dbadd9               Bbm
I'm a shadow of the past
                Dbadd9
The shadow of a boy
                    Bbm
a boy who couldn't last
                        Gb
They said: "Son, don't change"
           Ab           Ab                     Dbadd9 Bbm
And I keep hoping they won't see how much I have
 
Verse 4:
   Dbadd9                    Bbm
a feeling's not a thing you own
              Dbadd9
But it can be lost
                  Bbm
I just want to be home
                         Gb
'Cause home's where the heart is
             Ab
And when I departed
     Ab                      Dbadd9 Ab
I might've abandoned them both
 
Chorus:
     Dbadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Bbm
Between two states-- I'm petrified
      Dbadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
      Bbm
What should I bring or leave behind
     Gb
From who I was
    Ab                  Fm7
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Bridge:
     Ab                    Cm                Dbadd9
I'd like to say: "I'm the same person from yesterday
            Ab
Nothing's changed"
 
         Ab             Cm                 Dbadd9
'Cause yesterday I was eager to see what awaited
             Ab
I wasn't jaded
 
     Ab   Cm Fm7
But no!
            Dbadd9
I can't go back
 
Ab
Youth seemed sweeter
                Cm                                   Fm7
But if I could return, all I've learned would be forfeit
           Dbadd9  Ab Cm Fm7 Dbadd9 Ab Cm Fm7 Dbadd9
I won't go back
 
Outro:
     Ab                            Cm
I'm followed by the borderline as I pace forward in my life
 Fm7                   Dbadd9                       Ab
Seeking the times I'll long for once they leave me

I believe that C works much better than cadd9 in this song for 0

If you want to give it a more mysterious (¯\_(ツ)_/¯) sound you can use F instead of Cadd9. I’m only saying this bc I thought Cdd9 sounded a bit weird, but I agree with Ash if you want to stick to the original sound of the song.

Does anybody know the strumming pattern by chance?
