(I realise)
All I want
All I need
Always lies just out of reach
I've been coming up empty

(I realise)
I ran as fast as I can run
I pushed as hard as anyone
But still there's nothing for me

(And I want)
I've tried as hard as I can
(And I need)
I've taken all I can stand
(And I fall)
But I am running a race
Against myself
Against myself
Yeah

(I realise)
Running out, struggle on
Am I sorrow as my song
My whole world is half parted

(I realise)
For my pain I have none
After all is said and done
Now I'm back where I started

(And I want)
I've gone as far as I can
(And I need)
I've taken all I can stand
(And I fall)
But I am running a race
Against myself
Against myself
Yeah

(And I want)
I've tried as hard as I can
(And I need)
I've taken all I can stand
(And I fall)
But I am losing the race
Against myself
Against myself
Yeah

Against myself
