  • Ah

    Gone a little far
    Gone a little far this time for somethin'
    How was I to know?
    How was I to know this high came rushing?

    We're on the borderline
    Caught between the tides of pain and rapture
    Possibly a sign
    I'm gonna have the strangest night on Sunday

    There I go
    Quite a show for a loner in L.A.
    Askin' how I managed to end up in this place
    And I couldn't get away

    We're on the borderline
    Dangerously far and all forgiven
    There's gonna be a fight
    Gonna be a price to pay on Monday
    (If you and I get comfortable)
    We're on the borderline (on the borderline)
    Caught between the tides of pain and rapture
    Then I saw the time (saw the time)
    Watched it speedin' by like a train
    Like a train

    Will I be known and loved?
    Is there one that I trust?
    Starting to sober up
    Has it been long enough?
    Will I be known and loved?
    Little closer, close enough
    I'm a loser, loosen up
    Set it free, must be tough
    Will I be known and loved?
    Is there one that I trust?
    If there's room, room for doubt
    As within, as without ya
    Will I be so in love?
    Gettin' closer, close enough
    Shout out to what is done
    R.i.p. Here comes the sun
    Here comes the sun

    Gone a little far
    Gone a little far this time with something
    How could I have known?
    How was I to know this life get no shame
    I said, "Come with me outside"
    I need to clear my mind
    This weight is crushing
    Do you see the light, oh
    Coming from their eyes, oh no
    And I couldn't get away

    We're on the borderline
    Gets me every time
    These close encounters
    Just to know I can (just to know I can)
    Once again, I am alone

    Will I be known and loved?
    Is there one that I trust?
    Starting to sober up
    Has it been long enough?
    Will I be known and loved?
    Little closer, close enough
    I'm a loser, loosen up
    Set it free, must be tough (I was fine without ya)
    Will I be known and loved?
    L.A. really messed me up
    And it isn't cut and dry
    Conversation, well I tried (I was fine without ya)
    Will I be? Stay right here
    Any closer, bad idea
    Shout out to what is done
    R.I.P. here comes the sun (I was fine without ya)
    Will I be known and loved?
    Is there one that I trust?
    Starting to sober up
    Has it been long enough? Writer/s: Kevin Parker
