Borderline

Verse 1

Tiptoeing around my treacherous heart
How long will it take till I fall apart
You never quite know what to do or to say
And I wouldn’t blame you
If you choose to walk away

Cause you’re damned if you do
And damned if you don’t
Why should you inhale this invisible smoke
I only take a second to break
One simple mistake
And then I completely disassociate

Pre-Chorus

You tell me you love me
And I believe it
But when I feel nothing
It’s hard to retrieve it

Chorus

Cause I’m borderline
Standing on the edge of insanity
And I don’t know why
My feelings never make much sense to me
And I can’t get by
When I can’t even see what’s in front of me
I’m borderline
Running through the maze that is my mind

Verse 2

I changed my body and all of my clothes
In order to fit in to a world I’ve never known
But when everyone’s talking
I don’t feel the glow
Their lips like an angel
And I’m only flesh and bone

Cause I’m damned if I do
And damned if I don’t
When will I be in on this invisible joke
I only take a second to break
One simple mistake
And then I completely disassociate

Pre-Chorus

You show me you love me
And I believe it (I believe, I believe, I believe in you)
But when I feel nothing
It’s hard to retrieve it

Chorus

Cause I’m borderline
Standing on the edge of insanity
And I don’t know why (don’t know why)
My feelings never make much sense to me
And I can’t get by (can’t get by)
When I can’t even see what’s in front of me
I’m borderline (borderline)
Running through the maze that is my mind

Bridge

And when all is said and done
I hope to do more than run
Become what I never was
Hold onto me
Hold onto me

Nostalgia feeds my soul
Help me when I lose control
Remember when I was young
Hold onto me
Hold onto me

Chorus

Cause I’m borderline
Standing on the edge of insanity
And I don’t know why
My feelings never make much sense to me
And I can’t get by
When I can’t even see what’s in front of me
I’m borderline
Standing on the edge of insanity
And I don’t know why (don’t know why)
My feelings never make much sense to me
And I can’t get by (can’t get by)
When I can’t even see what’s in front of me
I’m borderline (borderline)
Running through the maze that is my mind
