Dave Edmunds
Låtskriver Don Rollins

I feel tears wellin’ up going deep inside
Like my heart’s gonna get break
And the stab of loneliness sharp and painful
That I may never shake
You might say that I was taking it hard
Since you broke me off with a call
But don’t you wager that I’ll hide in sorrow
When I may break right down and bawl

Now the race is on
And here comes pride in the backstretch
Heartache’s goin’ to the inside
My tears are holdin’ back
They’re tryin’ not to fall
My heart’s out of the runnin’
True love’s scratched for another’s sake
The race is on and it looks like heartaches
And the winner loses all


One day I ventured in love
Never once suspectin’ what the final result would be
how I lived in fear of waking up each morning
finding that you’re gone from me
There’s ache and pain in my heart
For tonight was the one that I hated to face
Somebody new came up to win her
And I came out in second place

Now the race is on ……..
