lyrics

Racing the Sun
Words and lyrics © 2014 Thomas Hauck / Olex Music

When I was a boy
Life seemed so simple then
My days could last forever
And time was quick to spend
The road stretched out before me
Across the blue horizon
The race⎯I didn’t care
If I lost or if I won

I’m racing the sun across the empty sky
The time growing shorter never asking why
Too much left undone and there’s nothing left to prove
I’m never standing still I always gotta move

Counting my accomplishments
Doesn’t take too long
Maybe they’re a symphony
Or maybe just one song
Castles floating in the air
Or a single stubborn stone
Whatever they may be
I’m born and die alone

I’m racing the sun across the empty sky
The time growing shorter never asking why
Too much left undone and there’s nothing left to prove
I’m never standing still I always gotta move

I ain’t gonna cause a big sensation
For me the world has shown no expectation

When I stop to think about
Where I’m going next
I shrug my shoulders take my pen
And write another check
Another bill is coming due
But paying I don’t mind
Once there was a day
I didn’t have a dime

I’m racing the sun across the empty sky
The time growing shorter never asking why
Too much left undone and there’s nothing left to prove
I’m never standing still I always gotta move
