Words and music by rick nielsen
Run out of money and runnin' out of luck
Run into problem I never, never thought of
It seems like I didn't run out of my dreams
But we've got each other and tonight we're gonna leave

To the borderline
Leave all our troubles behind
At the borderline
Forget all our troubles tonight

A broken promise is a broken dream
We've all had so many, too many for me
Impossible to have freedom when things aren't free
But we've got each other and tonight we're gonna leave

To the borderline
Leave all our troubles behind
At the borderline
Forget all our troubles and hide

To the borderline
Leave our troubles tonight
At the borderline
Forget all our troubles
Leavin' all our troubles
At the borderline

I wanna go, I wanna go
Oh I'll go anywhere
I wanna go, I wanna go away from here
Is all I really care

Runnin' away from the girl of my dreams
Runnin' away from a life of broken dreams

To the borderline
Leavin' all our troubles behind
At the borderline
Forget all our troubles tonight

To the borderline
Leave all our troubles behind
At the borderline
Forget all our troubles
Leavin' all our troubles
At the borderline

At the borderline

(repeat to coda)
