The Loneliness of a Long Distance Runner

(Iron Maiden)
Lyrics:
The tough of the track with the wind and the rain that’s beating down on your back
Your heart’s beating loud and goes on getting louder and goes on even more
‘Til the sound is ringing in your head with every step you tread and every breath you take
Determination makes you run never stop got to win got to run ’til you drop
Keep the pace hold the race your mind is getting clearer
You’re over halfway there but the miles they never seem to end
As if you’re in a dream not getting anywhere it seems so futile

Run on and on
Run on and on
The loneliness of the long distance runner

I’ve got to keep running the course
I’ve got to keep running and win at all costs
I’ve got to keep going, be strong
Must be so determined and push myself on

Run over stiles across fields turn to look at who’s on your heels
Way ahead of the field the line is getting nearer but do you want the glory that goes
You reach the final stretch ideals are just a trace
You feel like throwing the race it’s all so futile

Run on and on
Run on and on
The loneliness of the long distance runner
