Music and Lyrics by Sarah Eide

lyrics

I’m at the edge of a season, I’m at the edge of a change
The edge of my quarter-life crisis, in borderlands range

I know I should have grown into a woman by now,
But I’m still just a girl
albeit a serious one, bearing hopes and concerns
I occupy the role of a wife, with the mind of a child
I still didn’t make the transition, I’m still waiting in line

And I don’t know what I want, And I don’t know what I believe
I’m at...
And I don’t know what I’m meant for, I don’t know who I’m suppose to be
I’m at the borderland
living in between

I don’t know who I’m praying to anymore, No longer do I have that
single comfort
Desperate times call for desperate words, even if my dissertation goes unheard
I say “I want it all, and I won’t be confined.”
And she says, “You can have it all, just not all at the same time.”

But I don’t know what I want, And I don’t know what I believe
I’m at...
And I don’t know what I’m meant for, I don’t know who I’m suppose to be
I’m at the borderland
living in between

Believe me I know the risk I’m making
It’s a calculated risk I’m undertaking
I try keep the details of my life blurred
protect the ones I love from the line of the fire of my words.

In 24 years will I have to do this again or am I just an early victim of the borderland
Every year that goes by, the longer I’ve been around
my society tells me that my value goes down
The exceptions to this rule are few and far between
And I hold unto them harder than anything


And I don’t know what I want, And I don’t know what I believe
I’m at...
And I don’t know what I’m meant for, I don’t know who I’m suppose to be
I’m at...
How long will I be here, Will I ever get to leave
Do you see me here, Watch me beggin’ on my knees
I’m at the borderland
living in between

about

Sarah Eide Chicago, Illinois

A classical background coupled with a love for folk and roots music has led Sarah to writing songs that are daring yet familiar. Her lyrics are all at once raw, smart and intimate, wrapped in expressive melodies and driven by adventurous chord changes. Her songs dare question aloud spirituality, morality, relationships, societal standards, and where the line lies between right and wrong. ... more
