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 I bet you must learn:
You could lose more than you'll ever find.
When you reach the broken promise land,
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 (fine)
Up and down on 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.
dal $egno al fine
And you're still just across the borderline.
