Race For You

(Becka Brown)
Becka Brown
One of those unrequited love songs. It's all about trying too hard. At the time, I was pretty sure he was worth it. Well, it was a good run anyway.
race for you

I wasn't standing still, but
when you flew by me
well I picked up my pace
and you turned and flashed that fabulous face
oh, I can keep up with you
go on and try me
you know you're glad you found me,
run those circles round and round me

It's an honest education, what you're teaching
You're the purest motivation -- I am reaching
So, is this for me to keep? well, it's mine for now
I will race for you and never fall behind somehow
Do I dare to fall asleep? do I dare to fall
Will I wake to learn that you weren't really
there at all - no, no

I was just holding on, but when you revived me
Oh, boy, was I surprised
when my whole life flashed before me, in your eyes
oh I can keep my head up --- the waves may blind me,
but I can swim this ocean By the force of sheer emotion

I can almost taste the glory, glasses clinking
tell me there's a trophy for me -- I'm not sinking
So, is this for me to keep? well, it's mine for now
I will race for you and never fall behind somehow
Do I dare to fall asleep? do I dare to fall
Will I wake to learn that you weren't really
there at all - no, no
