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

On the Sander Side

I’m so happy this song was added, I’ve been waiting so long!!!

Ash

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

TwentyOnePilotsPanickingAtTheDicoWhileFallingOut

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.

Angie

In the first chorus I changed the Am to an F chord, I think it sounds better =P

MC

Does anybody know the strumming pattern by chance?

tsuki.sadboii

I’m not entirely sure but I use dduudu

Angie

I’m playing around with a strumming and plucking pattern. I haven’t fully figured it out but I’m currently using
Strum 2 4 3 4
with my thumb switching between strumming, plucking the 2nd string, and plucking the 3rd string with my index finger plucking the 4th string
(The 1st string being the string closest to your chin and the 4th being the furthest string)
