​Borders

This song is by Abby Ahmad and appears on the album Curriculum (2009).

There's a fine line that separates
What we want and what we get
So I will state this plainly
I'm not finished with you yet

You claim your aim is to abstain
From distraction, from diversion
Yet you will readily admit you are
Subject to coercion

Love, you knew this thing was bigger than
Any qualm inside your head
Why hold it down,
Why hold your ground,
When you could hold me instead?

Fall into this blindly
Invade my privacy
Know better
Than to know better
'Cause I've got something
That I think you'd like to see

We knew we took a gamble
The day we offered our consent
Old friends become new lovers
In one bold instant
All our silences were spoken
I heard the code crack from within
The borders, they're all broken
Now I can't tell where I end and you begin

I guess some risks just must be taken
When certain hungers must be fed
Why have it out
Why have our doubts
When we could have us instead?

Fall into this blindly
Invade my privacy
Know better
Than to know better
'Cause I've got something
That I think you'd like to

See me here as I am
Laid out in light before you
Take as much as you can
Lover, I implore you
If you really want out
You'd better learn to live without
The realest real you've ever felt

I know it'd take a sharp edge
To make you think outside your lines
To make you cease from building boundaries
To let your love bleed into mine

What's crime to you
I call "creation"
You say, "There're rules"
I'm unconvinced
This is you
And this is me
And we are not degrees of
Guilt or innocence

Fall into this blindly
Invade my privacy
Know better
Than to know better
'Cause I've got something that I think you'd like to see

Fall into me kindly
Not to would be piracy
And you'd be no better
Than a thief in stormy weather
Slipping away before daylight
Sailing my heart into the night

You can call this untimely
I can call you by your name
You've been unfettered
But you know better
Than to suggest that I try
The same

There's a fine line that separates
What we want and what we get
