Intro -x2-: Eadd9 A Abm7 A
 
     Eadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
       Dbm
What should I bring or leave behind
      A
From who I was
    B
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Verse 1:
Eadd9                     Dbm
I still haven't packed my bags
             Eadd9
It's time to go
                      Dbm
And I could not care less
              A
So now, I'll miss the train
                 B
a walk's still progress made
  B                              Eadd9 Dbm
I just won't arrive quite as fast
 
Verse 2:
Eadd9             Dbm
I'm thinking way back
             Eadd9
To where I'm from
                Dbm
To the things I had
        A
I feel I've forgotten something
                    B
Iâm sure that it's probably nothing
            B                          Eadd9 B
But that's based more on fear than on fact
 
Chorus:
     Eadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Dbm
Between two states- I'm petrified
    Dbm           Eadd9
To push ahead or turn back homewardly
 
Verse 3:
Eadd9               Dbm
I'm a shadow of the past
                Eadd9
The shadow of a boy
                    Dbm
a boy who couldn't last
                        A
They said: "Son, don't change"
           B           B                     Eadd9 Dbm
And I keep hoping they won't see how much I have
 
Verse 4:
   Eadd9                    Dbm
a feeling's not a thing you own
              Eadd9
But it can be lost
                  Dbm
I just want to be home
                         A
'Cause home's where the heart is
             B
And when I departed
     B                      Eadd9 B
I might've abandoned them both
 
Chorus:
     Eadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
  Dbm
Between two states-- I'm petrified
      Eadd9
I'm standing on the borderline
      Dbm
What should I bring or leave behind
     A
From who I was
    B                  Abm7
For who I'm gonna be?
 
Bridge:
     B                    Ebm                Eadd9
I'd like to say: "I'm the same person from yesterday
            B
Nothing's changed"
 
         B             Ebm                 Eadd9
'Cause yesterday I was eager to see what awaited
             B
I wasn't jaded
 
     B   Ebm Abm7
But no!
            Eadd9
I can't go back
 
B
Youth seemed sweeter
                Ebm                                   Abm7
But if I could return, all I've learned would be forfeit
           Eadd9  B Ebm Abm7 Eadd9 B Ebm Abm7 Eadd9
I won't go back
 
Outro:
     B                            Ebm
I'm followed by the borderline as I pace forward in my life
 Abm7                   Eadd9                       B
Seeking the times I'll long for once they leave me
