standin’ on the borderline lyrics – carole king

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 you gotta know how to handle your love
if you want it to last
you just can’t let it burn out too fast

you can’t stand still on the borderline
you either make your move or you turn away
i’m too close to the borderline
i’m coming across if you want me to stay

you know i’m experienced
every day can’t be a fireworks show
but when you 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
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

standin’ on the borderline
ready to cross the borderline
standin’ on the borderline
if i can’t have you, it’ll break my heart

standin’ on the borderline
ready to cross the borderline
standin’ on the borderline
if i can’t have you, it’ll break my heart
