Camera Obscura – Marathon Not A Sprint lyrics

Marathon not a sprint

(I love my Jean ep - 2005)

Honey you were good for me but I can't deny my need to be free grows
I resigned myself to climb the stairs to your
Winning thighs and endless prayers alone
My new-found confidence you hate, everything put down to fate
Nothing less or more
It's a marathon and not a sprint
That's what we said before we quit
Love should grow
Should boast

I feel I'm doing time
With someone not on my side
A mystery divide
Brings me close
To who I love the most

A friend from the capital came to visit
Will she comfort me or does she want to gossip
Who knows?
I'll take these worries to the park
I won't come home until after dark
Noone will know except you of course
I'll go swimming and ride a bike
Maybe turn into someone that you'd like
It's a marathon and not a sprint
That's what we said before we quit
Love should grow, should boast
