Borderline (from Local Color CD, 2005)

(Solid Air)
BORDERLINE
© 2004 Allegra Broughton & Sam Page

You left your mark on the dusty highway
You left my heart trailing right behind
You left your footsteps walking out my doorway
Just a step away from the borderline

Borderline, I can’t cross it
It presses right against my skin
In the night I hear you knockin’
But you know I can’t let you in
I just can’t let you in.

Love, oh love, why have you turned traitor
And left my heart a homeless refugee
Once I walked the streets of this proud city
Now I walk the edge of the borderline

Won’t you drop me in that cool green river
When my head is breakin’ from the heat
And wipe away the traces of your lovin’
Take me to the banks and wash me clean

Borderline, I can’t cross it
It presses right against my skin
In the night I hear you knockin’
But you know I can’t let you in
I just can’t let you in.
I’m just a step away from the borderline...
