Lyrics

Over the Border
(Words and Music by Paul Kleinert)

It?s the light that?s soon forgotten
Left all alone it?s sure to burn out.
It?s the inside, that?s the first to go rotten.
Pull down the shades and for God?s sake turn the light out.

Don?t let ?em see you looking down.
Don?t let ?em turn you head around.

It?s the heartache that forever stays broken.
You take it out back and you bury deep in the ground
It?s the promise too true to be spoken.
If not spoken then broken?s the last thing that she?s all about.

Last time I looked I was over the border
Last time I looked I was almost alone.
Last time I looked I was over the border
Last time I looked I was sitting at home.

It?s the heartache forever stays broken
It?s the needle that scratches the surface and crawl your way out.
It?s the promise too true to be spoken
Your eyes start to speak but your lips they don?t utter a sound.

Her eyes start to sink and her legs start to shake
I?ve had too much to drink and my head starts to ache
Her eyes start to speak and my head starts to spin?spin around again

Last time I looked I was over the border
Last time I looked I was almost alone.
Last time I looked I was over the border
Last time I looked I was sitting at home.

Last time I looked I was over the border
The last time I looked?

Her eyes start to sink and her legs start to shake
I?ve had too much to drink and my head starts to ache
Her eyes start to speak and my head starts to spin?spin around again
