You said you wanted safer ground
But you got caught up in the river
I was there to save you boy
But you'd rather drown
You said you were unhappy
But that was alright
Better than not knowin'
What's on the other side
And you know I was always there for you
And you know I always believed in you
I guess that wasn't enough

On the boundary
On the boundary baby
On the boundary
Don't you need my love
You won't even let me
Keep from fallin'
From the boundary
That divides our love

I gave you a kingdom
That you could be lord in
And we both know you loved
The taste of my world
But you ran back to your corner
Where you trip over your lines
Look left, look right
No room to hide

On the boundary
On the boundary baby
On the boundary
Don't you need my love
You won't even let me
Keep from fallin'
From the boundary
That divides our love

I guess that wasn't enough
I guess I wasn't enough
On the boundary
On the boundary baby
On the boundary
Don't you need my love
You won't even let me
Keep from fallin'
From the boundary
That divides our love
