Extracted from a song,
You're falling star
You're the getaway car
You're the line in the sand
When I go to far
What does the third line which says "You're the line in the sand" mean?
Thanks in advance,
SarunnioHi,One side in a conflict draws a line in the sand.....the other side dares not cross it, or there is a price to be paid [war?]. I'm not sure of the significance here.

May I know the title of the song? I'd just like to read the whole lyrics as it sounds interesting to me. Thanks!
The song is "Everything" by Michael Buble. Listen to it. Its joyful!
IMO, the line in the sand serves as a guide, since he is going too far, so he knows what to follow when he goes back... I hope I get it right... But whatever the meaning is, I just fell inlove with the song.. [L]
So, "a line in the sand" is a point beyond which one will not go.
I think here it means "you stop me when I go too far", "you won't let me go too far".
People are waiting to help.
