    "Across The Borderline" Lyrics

    Willy Deville

    There's a place 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 could lose more than you'll ever find
    When you reach the broken promiseland every dream
    Slips through your hand
    You'll know it's too late
    To change your mind
    'Cause you paid the price to come so 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
    When you reach the broken promiseland
    And you're still just across the borderline
