I've seen my dreams put down, but I'm aiming for that gold.
One shot at the big time before I find myself too old.
I’m a runner I’m a runner I’m a runner I’m a runner
Cold wind biting at my face,
Gotta find the strength from somewhere,
Push my body all the way,
When the time comes I'll be there.
Still got a lot to do, but I'm trying to make the grade,
Five thousand's a long way, you make a killing or you fade.
I’m a runner ………………………………………
I put my body and mind on the rack
I'm burning up at the end of the track
It's getting harder as years go by,
But I'm a failure if I don't try.
Ask me why I carry on,
I'll give you one good reason.
I just know I was born to run,
I come alive with every track season.
Fat cat with your famous brand,
stay the course and sponsor me
You'll see your money back with a gold medal guarantee.
I’m a runner ............................................................
Composer, Songwriter, Singer, Photographer
Rain's falling, feel I'm gonna drown
Wind's blowing, trying to cut me down
I know it finished more than an hour ago
And even though my body don't wanna know
I gotta push myself I just cannot give way
Don't wanna hear nobody
say he won't make it any way
Cos I'm a marathon man doin' what I can
I'm trying to get around in a good time
I'm a marathon man that's what I am
Nothing else could matter anymore
'til I make my time
I feel crazy, the heat could make me die
Chest's burning, enough to make me cry
There's still an hour or more 'til I reach the end
And round the bend a hill's still left to climb
I gotta drag my body on for five more miles
I'll take it easy for a while
then finish it in style
Chorus: Cos I'm a marathon man ….........
All week in the office,
quick lunches and drinks at five
Come Saturday morning
my body wants to come alive
Chorus: Cos I'm a marathon man..........
