Chris de Burgh - Borderline
Tekst en muziek: Chris de Burgh
(1982)






I’m standing in the station, I am waiting for a train
To take me to the border and my loved one far away
I watched a bunch of soldiers heading for the war
I could hardly even bear to see them go



Rolling through the countryside, tears are in my eyes
We’re coming to the borderline, I’m ready with my lies
And in the early morning rain, I see her there
And I know, I’ll have to say goodbye again



And it’s breaking my heart, I know what I must do
I hear my country call me, but I wanna be with you
I’m taking my side, one of us will lose
Don’t let go, I want to know
That you will wait for me until the day
There’s no borderline
No borderline



Walking past the border guards, reaching for her hand
Showing no emotion, I want to break into a run
But these are only boys and I will never know
How men can see the wisdom in a war



And it’s breaking my heart, I know what I must do
I hear my country call me, but I wanna be with you
I’m taking my side, one of us will lose
Don’t let go, I want to know
That you will wait for me until the day
There’s no borderline
No borderline



No borderline
No borderline
