"The Race Is On" lyrics

The Race Is On

Well, I feel tears welling up cold and deep inside
Like my heart's sprung a big break
And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful
That I may never shake

Now you might say that I was taking it hard
Since he wrote me off with a call
But don't you wager that I'll hide my sorrow
When I may break right down and bawl

Now the race is on
And here comes pride up the backstretch
Heartaches are going to the inside
My tears are holding back
They're trying 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 results would be
How I lived in fear of waking up each morning
And finding that you're gone from me

Cause aching and pain in my heart for today
Is the one that I hated to face
Somebody new came up to win him
And I came out in second place

Now the race is on
And here comes pride up the backstretch
Heartaches are going to the inside
My tears are holding back
They're trying 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
