"Crossing the Line" is a song sung by Cassandra and Rapunzel in the season three premiere of Tangled: The Series, "Rapunzel's Return". In the aftermath of Cassandra's betrayal and taking the power of the Moonstone for herself, she officially cuts ties with Rapunzel and is determined to create her own destiny to achieve the dreams and glory she's always wanted for herself.

Lyrics

Rapunzel:
This has to stop now
Whatever it is that you're going through,
we'll fix it together - me and you
Just like we've always done

Cassandra:
No! This has to stop now
This thing where you think that you've been my friend
And don't even hear how you condescend
The way you've always done

Rapunzel: Cassandra, listen
Cassandra: I'm listening
Rapunzel: I know it isn't true
Cassandra: Isn't it?
Rapunzel: Just look into my eyes now
Cassandra: Well?
Rapunzel: I know you feel it too
Cassandra: Perhaps I do

Rapunzel: Cassandra, listen
Cassandra: I'm listening
Rapunzel: I swear it's not too late
So before another line gets crossed
and everything we've had is lost
just wait...

Cassandra:
Wait? No, I won't wait.

There's a line between the winners and the losers
There's a line between the chosen and the rest
And I've done the best I could
But I've always known just where we stood
Me here with the luckless
You there with the blessed

And that line between the beggars and the choosers
is a line you never let me quite ignore
How I've tried to jump that great divide!
But I've never got the chances you were given
You don't know how much I've been denied
Well, I'm not being patient anymore

I'm crossing the line!
And I'm done holding back
So look out, clear the track, it's my turn!
I'm taking what's mine
Every drop, every smidge
If I'm burning a bridge, let it burn!
But I'm crossing the line...

As for us, if we're over, that's fine...
I'm crossing the line

Lyricist Glenn Slater shared an extended version of this song on Twitter, which included additional verses and chorus. These lines were never recorded for the show.

[...Well, I'm not being patient anymore]

I'm crossing the line!
So get out of my way
'Cause I'm not gonna play by your rules
It's my time to shine
I don't need your 'OK'
And I'm done being one of the fools
I'm crossing that line

There are lines that I've been waiting in forever
There are lines I've always felt I had to toe
Some were blurry, some unseen
Some I've had to learn to read between
So many boundaries
Far more than you know!

But the line you think connects us both together?
That's a line that I'm not falling for again
'Cause this time my eyes are open wide
I've been trapped by lines you never had to live in
You were never really on my side
So I'm doing what I should have, way back when

[I'm crossing the line!...]
