[Intro]

C chordC F chordF G chordG

C chordC F chordF C chordC
Ooo-Aoh-Aohhh-oooh
F chordF C chordC
I'm standing on the borderline
Am chordAm
What should I bring or leave behind

From who I was
G chordG
For who I'm gonna be

[Verse 1]
C chordC Am chordAm
I still haven't packed my bags
C chordC
It's time to go
Am chordAm
And I could not care less
F chordF
So now I’ll miss the train
G chordG
A chordA walk’s still progress made
C chordC G chordG
I just won't arrive quite as fast

[Verse 2]
C chordC Am chordAm
I’m thinking way back
C chordC
To where I'm from
Am chordAm
To the things I had
F chordF
I feel I’ve forgotten something
G chordG
I’m sure that it's probably nothing
C chordC G chordG
But that’s based more on fear than on fact

[Chorus]
C chordC
I'm standing on the borderline
Am chordAm
Between two states- I'm petrified
G chordG
To push ahead or turn back homewardly

[Verse 3]
C chordC Am chordAm
I'm a shadow of the past
C chordC
The shadow of a boy
Am chordAm
A chordA boy who couldn't last
F chordF
They said “Son don't change”
G chordG C chordC G chordG
And I keep hoping they won't see how much I have

[Verse 4]
C chordC Am chordAm
A chordA feeling’s not a thing you own
C chordC
But it can be lost
Am chordAm
I just want to be home
F chordF
‘Cause home's where the heart is
G chordG
And when I departed
C chordC G chordG
I might’ve abandoned them both mm

[Chorus]
C chordC
I'm standing on the borderline
Am chordAm
Between two states-- I'm petrified
C chordC
I'm standing on the borderline
Am chordAm
What should I bring or leave behind

From who I was
G chordG
For who I'm gonna be

[Bridge]
C chordC
mmmm
G chordG D chordD C chordC
I’d like to say “I’m the same person from yesterday

Nothing’s changed”
G chordG D chordD C chordC
‘Cause yesterday I was eager to see what awaited

I wasn’t jaded
G chordG D chordD Fm chordFm
But no Aoh Aooohhh
G chordG C chordC
I can’t go back
G chordG
Youth seemed sweeter
D chordD G chordG
But if I could return all I’ve learned would be forfeit
C chordC
I won’t go back
G chordG D chordD C chordC G chordG D chordD G chordG C chordC
Aaaaaa Aoh Aooohhh-woahh Ooh Aoh Aooohhh-ohh

[Outro]
G chordG D chordD
I’m followed by the borderline as I pace forward in my life
C chordC Cm chordCm G chordG
Seeking the times I’ll long for once they leave me

Hey, GabrielleOlene! I found that Down, Down, Up, Up, Down, Up works really well! The beats would be 1, 2 &, & 4 &
