    Lyrics

    (Written by Don Rollins)

    I feel tears wellin' up cold and deep inside
    Like my heart's sprung a big break
    And the stab of loneliness, sharp and painful
    That I may never shake.

    You might say I was taking it hard
    Oh, she wrote me off with a call
    But don't you wager that I'll hide the sorrow
    When I may break right down and bawl.

    Chorus:
    Well, the race is on
    And here comes pride up the backstretch
    Heartaches a-going to the inside
    My tears are holding back
    And tryin' not to fall
    My heart's out of the running
    True love's scratched for another's sake
    The race is on and it looks like heartaches
    And the winner loses all.

    --- Instrumental ---

    One day I ventured in love, never once suspectin'
    What the final results would be
    How I lived in fear of waking up each mornin'
    And finding that you're gone from me.

    There's aches and pain in my heart
    For today was the one that I hated to face
    Somebody new came up to win her
    I wound up in second place.

    Chorus:
    Well, the race is on and here comes pride
    Up the backstretch
    Heartaches a-going to the inside
    My tears are holding back
    And tryin' not to fall
    My heart's out of the running
    True love's scratched for another's sake
    The race is on and it looks like heartaches
    And the winner loses all...
