​Runner

This song is by Sheila and appears on the album Little Darlin' (1981).

Through the night, through the dawn.
Behind you another runner is born.
Don't look back, you've been there.
Feel the mist as your breath hits the air.

And it's underneath the moonlight.
Passing some, till your heart beats
In the moolight like a drum.
And you will run your time
A shooting star across the sky
And you will surely cross the line
To pass on the flame

Sun come up, sun go down
Hear the feet, see the sweat on the ground
Watch your step, keep your cool
Through you can't see what's in front of you

'Cause you're a runner in a race
Takin' someone's place whose run
You're a runner in a race
And the only way its won

Is to pass on the flame
And you will run your time
A shooting star across the sky
And you will surely cross the line
To pass on the flame

You run your time
To pass on the flame
Across the sky
To pass on the flame
You cross the line
You run your time
