(eric carmen)

Twenty years with my brain in a book
Tryin' to find out who I am
Endless nights and olympian dreams
Of a race I never ran

Someone's callin' my name
It's the crowd in the stands
Don't know how I became
What I suddenly am

Marathon man, keep a-runnin'
Marathon man, keep a-runnin'
I've been searchin' so long
But the answer is finally at hand
I'm a marathon man

Wind is gone and my head's in a haze
But I must keep up the pace
Got to think about strategy here
If I hope to win the race

Someone's callin' my name
It's the crowd in the stands
Concentrate on the pain
Put my soul in command

Marathon man, keep a-runnin'
Marathon man, keep a-runnin'
I've been searchin' so long
But the answer is finally at hand
I'm a marathon man

Wasting my youth
Chasing dreams, testing truth
Taking turns being deceived
And deceivin'
Bound with a rope
Made of heroes and hope
Till I found nothin' left
To believe in

Marathon man, keep a-runnin'
Marathon man, keep a-runnin'
I've been searchin' so long
But the answer is finally at hand
I'm a marathon man
