Borderline
Florrie Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I was right, there's only one of you
You dance through life to your own tune
You're beautiful and complicated too
A fancy room with a bad view

And I know that you know it's not easy
Fighting battles that live in your mind
But you're close to the edge, I can feel it
Every time that we say good night

You hide your feelings so I won't cry
But I'll keep waiting at the borderline
And when you're ready to change your mind
Then I'll be waiting at the borderline

You live your life like a firework
You soar right up 'til you're fit to burst
And here I am standing on the ground
My hands held high, I won't let you down

And I know that you know it's not easy
Fighting battles that live in your mind
But you're close to the edge, I can feel it
Every time that we say good night

You hide your feelings so I won't cry
But I'll keep waiting at the borderline
And when you're ready to change your mind
Then I'll be waiting at the borderline

In my head, in your head, it's a little bit mixed up
In my head it's a little bit quiet
Sometimes it's a little bit harder to fight

You hide your feelings so I won't cry
But I'll keep waiting at the borderline




And when you're ready to change your mind
Then I'll be waiting at the borderline

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Borderline" by Florrie speak to the complexity of a relationship with someone who is battling inner demons and struggles. The singer acknowledges that the person they are addressing is unique and dances to their own tune in life. Despite being beautiful and complicated, they are trapped in a cycle of internal battles and are close to the edge, which is palpable at the end of each day when they part ways.


The singer expresses their understanding of the struggles the other person is facing and admires their resilience, even though they hide their feelings to protect their loved one from further pain. The singer vows to stand by the person at the borderline, ready to offer support whenever they are ready to make a change and confront their inner turmoil.


The metaphor of living life like a firework suggests that the person lives passionately and with intensity, reaching high points before potentially facing a downfall. Despite the highs and lows, the singer remains grounded, symbolized by standing on the ground with hands held high, committed to not letting the other person down in their time of need.


The final verse delves into the internal struggles both parties are facing. The singer acknowledges the turmoil in their own head and recognizes the quiet moments of introspection. They understand that the battle is difficult and sometimes overwhelming, but they are prepared to keep waiting at the borderline until the other person is ready to confront their emotions and make a change. The song overall conveys a message of unwavering support and love in the face of mental and emotional challenges, promising to be a steadfast presence for someone navigating their own inner turmoil.
