"Across The Borderline" as written by Ryland Peter Cooder, James Luther Dickinson and John Robert Hiatt....
There's a land 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 that you must learn
You could lose more than you'll ever find
When you reach the broken promiseland 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

Up and down 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
When you reach the broken promiseland...
And you're still just across the borderline
