Lyrics
Something's got me working day and night
Something tells me winning won't be easy
This time
I gotta fight
Beauty's always been a friend to me
But I know she won't stay forever
But that's alright
Keeping my heart above water
Starting to feel that I'm stronger
Chorus:
I gotta run for my life
It's a marathon for my life
Take a chance, forget the competition
Dancin' till I drop
It goes on and on. I can't stop
It's a marathon to the top
Nothing comes from waiting and a wishing
So I keep running
Running for my life
My lover gives me hope when he is near
But only I can make the future
Better
Facing my fears
Moving fast so I can't be shot down
They'll never hit a dancing target
Now I can see it clear
Keeping my heart above water
Starting to feel that I'm stronger
Repeat Chorus
I got my eye on the track
I got my hands in the dirt
I know there's no turning back
I'm gonna push 'til it hurts
I know that my desire
Will take me to the wire
It's not a game I'm playing
I am here to WIN
Repeat Chorus
Running for my life
I got my eye on the track
I know there's no turning back
I'm gonna push push 'til it hurts
I'm gonna push push 'til it hurts
(It's a marathon)
