She gave me a heart in a woman's hand
Carved in cherry-wood
The severed part from a foreign land
I clearly understood
Love has a border and I can't cross over
Love has a border and a right and a wrong
Love has a border, some kind of an order
Beyond that border I don't belong
I sleep all day and dream all night
Prowling up the coast
I have my way when the moon is bright
I'm howling like a ghost
Love has a border and I can't cross over
Love has a border and a right and a wrong
Love has a border, some kind of an order
Beyond that border I don't belong
I ain't going to heaven now
'Cause I learned too many tricks
I just wanna get over this wall
How come I sit here making bricks
And mold her, guarding the border
So I keep that hand like a secret wife
A coin I never spent
Far away there's a place in life
I never really went
Love has a border, I can't cross over
Love has a border and a right and a wrong
Love has a border, some kind of an order
Beyond that border I don't belong
Guarding the border
