The Race Is On

I feel tears wellin’ up from down deep inside like my heart’s got a big break
And the stab of loneliness 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
You might wager that I’ll hide in sorrowand I might break right down and ball

Now the race is on and here comes pride in the backstretch
Heartache’s going to the inside my tears are holding back trying not to fall
My heart’s out of the running true love’s scratched for another’s sake
The race is on and it looks like heartache and the winner loses all

One day I ventured in love never once suspecting what the final results would be
Now I live in fear of waking up each morning and finding that you’re gone from me
There’s an achin’ pain in my heart for the name of the one that I hated to face
Somebody else came out to win her and I came out in second place
