STANDING ON THE BORDERLINE
by Gerry Goffin & Carole King

We're standing 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 y'gotta know how to handle your love
If y'want it to last
Y'just can't let it burn out too fast
Y'can't stand still on the borderline
You either make your move or y'turn away
I'm too close to the borderline
I'm coming across if you want me to stay

Y'know I'm experienced
Every day can be a fireworks show
But when y'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
I'm ready to cross the borderline
If I can't have you it'll break my heart

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

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