The Borderlines

The Borderlines

Jeffrey Osborne

Hey, the borderlines
Were closing in on the other side
With her love on my mind

I was just a working man
Working overtime in a foreign land
Tryin' to make a deal but knowing
Of thin paper walls

I met her in a small cafe
We shared some time over Beaujolais
Within a short span of time
We fell in love

Hey, the borderlines
Were closing in on the other side
With her love on my mind

We shared our body love through the night
Though we knew the end was in sight
We never stopped to think
Our love might not be

Borderlines
Could keep her love from me
Borderlines
Could say what I can see

Borderlines
Can tell me what can be
Borderlines
They will not control me, no

Borderlines
Could keep her heart from me
Borderlines
Could say what I can see

Borderlines
Can tell me what will be
Borderlines
They will not worry me, no
(They won't worry me, they won't worry me)

Hey, the borderlines
(Borderlines)
Were closing in on the other side
With her love on my mind

So we devised a working plan
A new disguise to fool any man
'Cause that's the only way
That we could be wed

And once we saw arrangements were made
We knew that we could not then delay
Authorities were hot on our trail
As we got away

Borderlines
Won't keep her love from me
Borderlines
Won't say what I can see

Borderlines
Won't tell me what can be
Borderlines
They will not control me, no

Borderlines
Won't keep her heart from me
Borderlines
Won't say what I can see

Borderlines
Won't tell me what will be
Borderlines
They will not worry me, no

Borderlines
Won't keep her love from me
Borderlines
Won't say what I can see, no

Borderlines
Won't tell me what can be
Borderlines
They will not worry me, no
(They won't worry me, they won't worry me)

Hey, the borderlines
(Borderlines)
Were closing in on the other side
With her love on my mind

Hey, the borderlines
(Borderlines)
Were closing in on the other side
With her love on my mind
(Oh whoa)

let's rock, let's go
Let's rock, let's go
Let's rock, let's go
Let's rock, let's go

let's rock, let's go
Let's rock, let's go
Let's rock, let's go
Let's rock, let's go

Borderlines
(Let's rock, let's go)
Borderlines
(Let's rock, let's go)
Borderlines
(Let's rock, let's go)
Borderlines
(Let's rock)
They will not control me, no
(Let's go)

Borderlines
(Let's rock)
Won't keep her heart from me
(Let's go)
Borderlines
(Let's rock)
Won't say what I can see
(Let's go)

Borderlines
(Let's rock)
Won't tell me what will be
(Let's go)
Borderlines
(Let's rock)
They will not worry me, no
(Let's go)

Borderlines
(Let's rock)
Won't keep her love from me
(Let's go)
Borderlines
(Let's rock)
Won't say what I can see
(Let's go)

Borderlines
(Let's rock)
Won't tell me what can be
(Let's go)
Borderlines
(Let's rock)
They will not control me, no
(Let's go)

Borderlines
(Let's rock)
Won't keep her love from me
(Let's go)
Borderlines
(Let's rock)
Won't say what I can see
(Let's go)
