Borderline-(A SONG FOR SARA)

Verse 1

It's never easy
giving up-moving on
Not what I believed
these dreams are not mine
There comes a time
when you've got to just say
Time for me
damn this way I've been living

Verse 2

That defining moment
you realise it's already too late-nothin' can survive
Torn photographs
angry words that cut-help you decide
It won't get better
no matter how much you try


I just
took it all in stride
Marked it
as another in a long line
Packed my bags
got in my car
Full tank
headed straight for sunrise


I just drove right out of sight
mile markers racing by
My heart
screaming down deep inside
Rain on the windshield
tears in my eyes
Another town
another memory tossed from my mind

Verse 3

When push came to shove
when everything became noticiable
Long sleeves and dark glasses can't hide
no mistaking it
It's take it
or leave it all behind


Verse 4

Roadside rest
for this car-my heart and soul
Moments from the night before
still lingering here
But there is a new day dawning
and I'm gonna be here to see it

poet Hilaire Belloc

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
