On the Border

lyrics

I'm on the border of cavin' in
I don't need a savior, all I need is a damn good friend
which leaves me wonderin' where all my friends have gone
they disappear so fast, like a lightnin' flash
I guess "forever" don't last so long as it used to

Oh but I've heard this sort of thing just goes around
So I don't let none of that noise bring me down

'cause we've got a ticket to ride
so meet me on the corner of the other side
I'll be scarce but I won't be hard to find
and you know you'll always be on my mind

Baby, I'm leavin'
leavin' this town
by the time you take the chance to state your case I'll be ten feet underground
So I'll pack my suitcase
full of whiskey and wine
I may not reinvent the standard of a rock bottom drunk but babe
I aim to toe that line

and oh those thigh high stilleto's they look might fine
hmm but I ain't gonna waste this precious time

'cause we've got this ticket to life
so meet me on the corner of the other side
I'll be scarce but I won't be hard to find
and you know you'll always be on my mind
yeah, you know you'll always be on my mind.
