Grateful Dead The Race Is On Lyrics

Last updated: 07/28/2011 11:00:00 AM

I feel tears welling up from down deep inside,
Like my heart's got a big break
And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful that I may never shake.

You might think that I'm taking it hard since you broke me off with a call,
You might wager that I'll hide in sorrow and I might lay right down and bawl.

Now the race is on and here comes Pride up the back stretch,
Heartache's a goin' to the inside, My Tears are holding back, tryin' not to fall.
My Heart's out of the running, True Love's scratched for another's sake,
The race is on and it looks like Heartache's, and the winner loses all.

One day I ventured in love never once suspecting
What the final results would be.
Now I live in fear of waking up each morning,
And finding that you're gone from me.

There's an aching pain in my heart for the name of the one that I hated to face,
Somebody else came out to win her, and I came out in second place.

The perfect song for my situation because my wife left me.
