Across The Borderline Lyrics

Willie Nelson – Across The Borderline Lyrics

There's a land where I've been told,
Every street is paved with gold,
And it's just across the borderline.
When it's time to take your turn,
Here's a lesson that you must learn,
You can lose more than you'll ever find.

*When you reach the broken promise land,
Every dream slips through your hand,
You'll know it's too late to change your mind.
'Cause you paid the price to come to far,
Just to wind up where you are,
And you're still just across the borderline.

Up and down the Rio Grande,
A thousand footprints in the sand,
Reveal the secret no one can define.
The river flows on like a breath,
In between our life and death,
Who's the next to cross the borderline.

Hope remains when pride is gone,
And it keeps you moving on,
Calling you across the borderline.

And you're still just across the borderline.
