Hi,

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,

Extracted from a song,

You're falling star
You're the getaway car
You're the line in the sand
When I go to too far

What does the third line which says "You're the line in the sand" mean?

Thanks in advance,

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.
Hi Sarunnio!

May I know the title of the song? I'd just like to read the whole lyrics as it sounds interesting to me. Thanks!

You're the line in the sand when I go too far

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.. Emotion: smile[L][8]
"To draw a line in the sand" means to set a limit beyond which things will not be accepted.
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".
