Lyrics The Borders – Sam Fender

We were like brothers
Everybody said
We looked the same
You’re a little taller
And broader, and bolder
We were afraid of your mother
Hell, she used to hit you so hard

And your dad took off
When you were a baby
And you still hate me
For my dad stuck around
You pin me to the ground

Eight years old with a replica gun
Pushin’ in my skull
Saying you’re gonna kill me if I tell
Never did, and I never will
That house was living hell

I remember my mother
When she found a new man
And your mother thought
She found a partner
A father for you, no wonder
You can’t stand me
I can’t stand me, too
I can’t stand me, too

Oh, your gone mother
Repaired the anger in me
Spoke to me
Like I was an adult
Didn’t take sides
And didn’t turn me
Against my dad
Then she took those pills
And now she’s gone

See her in the night
In the corner of my eye
And I see her in the night

Heard you glassed a boy back in the borders
Some naughty family boys are after you
You pinned me to the wall and said my mother
Stole your inheritance from you
We ain’t, we ain’t got a penny between wor’
Holding up this tent that we live in
You pinned me to the wall and smashed a bottle
Your eyes the door to hell and all within…
