Race is On
----------
I feel tears welling up from down deep inside,
like my heart's gotta be free,
instead of lonliness sharp and painful
that I may never shake.
You might think that I'm taking it hard
since you broke me off with a call,
Well, I'll wager that I'll hide in sorrow and
I might lay right down and ball.
Now the race is on and here comes pride up the back stretch,
heartaches a goin' to the inside,
my tears are holding back,
tryin' not to fall.
My heart's out of the running,
true love scratched for another's sake,
the race is on and it looks like heartaches,
and the winner loses all.
One day I ventured in love never once suspecting
what the final result would be.
I live in fear of waking up each morning,
and finding that you're gone from me.
There's an aching pain in my heart for the name
of the one that I hated to face,
someone else came out to win her,
and I came out in second place.
Now the race is on and here comes pride up the back stretch,
heartaches a goin' to the inside,
my tears are holding back,
tryin' not to fall.
My heart's out of the running,
true love scratched for another's sake,
the race is on and it looks like heartaches,
and the winner loses all.
Now the race is on and here comes pride up the back stretch,
heartaches a goin' to the inside,
my tears are holding back,
tryin' not to fall.
My heart's out of the running,
true love scratched for another's sake,
the race is on and it looks like heartaches,
and the winner loses all
