We're standin' on the borderline
Between falling in love and falling apart
I'm ready to cross the borderline
If I can't have you, it'll break my heart

Nothing really holds a candle to love
But why'gotta know how to handle your love
If why'want it to last
Why'just can't let it burn out too fast
Why'can't stand still on the borderline
You either make your move or why' turn away

I'm too close to the borderline
I'm coming across it, why' want me to stay

Why'know I'm experienced
Every day can't be a fireworks show
But when why'walk in the room
And it starts to glow
You don't have to tell me
I already know

We're ready to cross the borderline
Between falling in love and falling apart
We're ready to cross the borderline
If I can't have you, it'll break my heart

We're standin' on the borderline
Ready to cross the borderline
Standin' on the borderline
If I can't have you, it'll break my heart

We're standin' on the borderline
Ready to cross the borderline
Standin' on the borderline
If I can't have you, it'll break my heart
