Some sprint to snatch the prize in My goal's the far horizon I guess I'm obsessed With that long slow distance. The fleet of feet won't please you All speed, they love and leave you Not me, as you see I love long slow distance. Listen, my pulse beats strong and steady My pace won't stall when I hit the wall Others fall by the wayside, heat-exhausted But I'm no coward I'm solar-powered As long as I know that you'll be there with me Face to face when I break the tape For the kiss when we cross the finish line. Some play the tempo given I hear a different rhythm Do you hear it too? For the long slow distance. My stride is smooth and easy Your touch can always lead me Off-route in pursuit Of some long slow distance.
