​Half a Marathon Man

This song is by Sonata Arctica and appears on the album Pariah's Child (2014).

An 89 year old man learned how to run
And as he passed me by, he said "Come on, son!"
I really thought my bones weighed a ton
As I dragged them up and down the block
Now a couple of weeks have passed
Gone are the makings of a lazy man

When I saw the usher of change
Her flaming hair in slow-mo
Gliding past my window
I had to trace her down
"You look like a really nice guy
But can you keep up with me?"
Away she ran

I'm doing everything I can
To be half of a marathon man
How many things can life conceal
Deep in the mist everything is unreal
If you believe in me, I can
Become your own half a marathon man
I am half of a marathon man
Yea-yeah

Good morning, somebody kill me right now
I've never felt this kind of a burning cold
I read it somewhere, running is like a drug
As for the second day, I can say it is not
It's bright white burning pain
Bring it on, baby!

10 miles and I fell hellbent
I'm gonna make sure this rainbow has an end
I seem to have hit an invisible wall
Trying to find out if this here endless tunnel is really
A cave

So here I run between the fields
I am half of a marathon man
Follow the river down from the hills
If I can do it, then anyone can

Now her eyes reflect my skies
You can hear love in the 21 cries
Of half of a marathon man

It's a beautiful day, it's a beautiful day,
It's so beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

It's a beautiful day, it's a beautiful day,
It's so beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

It's a beautiful day, it's a beautiful day,
It's so beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

It's a beautiful day, it's a beautiful day,
It's so beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

So here I run between the fields
I am half of a marathon man
Follow the river down from the hills
If I can do it, then anyone can

Now her eyes reflect my skies
You can hear love in the 21 cries
Of half of a marathon man

It's a beautiful
It's a beautiful
It's a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful day

It's a beautiful
It's a beautiful
It's a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful day

It's a beautiful
It's a beautiful
It's a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful day.
