Borderline
Tame Impala Lyrics


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?

[Verse 1]
Gone a little far
Gone a little far this time with something
How was I to know?
How was I to know this high came rushing?

[Chorus]
We're on the borderline
Dangerously fine and unforgiven
Possibly a sign
I'm gonna have the strangest night on Sunday

[Verse 2]
Here I go
Quite a show for a loner in L.A.​
I wonder how I managed to end up in this place
Where I couldn't get away

[Chorus]
We're on the borderline (Ooh)
Caught between the tides of pain and rapture
Then I saw the time
Watched it speedin' by like a train
Like a train

[Refrain]
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
Setting free, must be tough
Will I be known and loved?
Is there one that I trust?
Starting to sober up
Has it been long enough?
Will I be so in love?
Any closer? Close enough
Shout out to what is done
R.I.P., here comes the sun
(Comes the sun)

[Verse 3]
Gone a little far
Gone a little far this time with something
Rudy said it's fine
They used to do this all the time in college (If you and I get comfortable)

[Chorus]
And we're on the borderline (Ooh)
Caught between the tides of pain and rapture
Then I saw the time
Watched it speedin' by like a train

[Refrain]
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
Setting free, must be tough
Will I be known and loved?
Is there one that I trust?
Starting to sober up
Has it been long enough?
Will I be so in love?
Any closer? Close enough
Shout out to what is done
R.I.P., here comes the sun
(Comes the sun)

A list of changes that occurred within both old and new versions of Borderline.

- A different sounding snare was used, possibly remixed.
- The vocals sound clearer and I believe that some kind of a stereo-shaper was used.
- A Moog Bass Synth is also used, the bass stands out even more now.
- at 0:43 a laser sounding synth was also used along with a couple of rapid snares before moving on to the next chapter of the song.
- at 0:47 You're able to hear acoustic strings playing in the far background as well.
- at 0:48 You can hear the lyric saying: ''Quite a show for a loner in LA.'' which is pronounced faster than the older Borderline.
- at 0:53 in the (Old) Borderline the lyric goes: ''Asking how I managed...''
But in the newer version the lyric goes: ''I wonder how I managed...''
- at 1:01 in the newer version the lyric that goes ''Get away'' is pronounced and vocalized in a different way than the older version.
- at 1:28 the silence before the drop. the volume noticeably decreases as you might be able to hear a sudden yet short reversed sample that is washed out with reverb. allowing the drop to stand out even more.
- at 1:59 You can hear a couple of notes playing in the far background, that help support the groove of the song.
- at 2:37 The short sudden vocal before jumping to the next part is also new.
- at 2:45 You can also hear more layers of background vocals that without a doubt made a /huge/ difference in the sound.
- And the ''AAAHHH'' at the intro, of course.

Also here are the lyrics as I'm bored

Gone a little far,
