why i run run run

here we go... the long hours
everyday
everyday
all night
everyday
enough time to eat
or eat on the job
a quick step outside
to remember the daylight
the walk home
where you feel the tired
the compounding tired
the compounding tired
putting on the bright face
the compounding tired
the endurance kicking in
the desire to drive it home to go home
the heavy sleep
the early morning
the working working working
and every second counts
every second filled

but the run is mine
that little bit of time i own
and the world is mine
and mind slows down
and the rush one feels
and i wonder how i go
when i know no rest
but i go and i go
and i'm thankful for the time
and the miles that i gain
on my own two feet
