The Race Is On
I feel tears wellin' up, cold and deep inside
Like my heart's sprung a big break
And the stab of loneliness, sharp and painful
That I may never shake
Now, you might say that I was taking it hard
Since you wrote me off with a call
But don't you wager that I'll hide the sorrow
When I may break right down and bawl

Now the race is on, and here comes Pride up the backstretch
Heartache's a-goin' to the inside
My tears are holdin' back
They're tryin' not to fall
My heart's out of the runnin'
True love's scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like Heartache's
And the winner loses all

One day I had ventured in love, never once suspectin'
What the final results would be
How I lived in fear of wakin' up each morning
And finding that you'd gone from me
There's aching and pain in my heart
For the day was the one that I hated to face
Somebody new came up to win her
And I came out in second place

Now the race is on, and here comes Pride up the backstretch
Heartache's a-goin' to the inside
My tears are holdin' back
They're tryin' not to fall
My heart's out of the runnin'
True love's scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like Heartache's
And the winner loses all
