Race for Life; Song Lyrics

Race for Life By Karen Wrighton .

For all the grandparents who went away, For all the families with a fight to face, For all those motherless children today, I’m gonna run this race. For the wife whose husband couldn’t stay To see the smile on his baby’s face, For little Sally all pale and grey, I’m gonna run this race. I’m running the race for life, can’t run any faster, I’m running the race for life, to help those people cope, I’m running the race for life, can’t run any harder, I’m running the race for life, to give somebody hope For the memories of a child that you adored, For the wedding photograph with an empty space, For all the drugs they couldn’t afford, I’m gonna run this race. I’m running the race for life, can’t run any faster, I’m running the race for life, to help those people cope, I’m running the race for life, can’t run any harder, I’m running the race for life, to give somebody hope For brave Jane who ran a hundred races, In spite of her illness and her frail state, Inspired by the pride on her families faces, I’m gonna run this race I’m running the race for life, can’t run any faster, I’m running the race for life, to help those people cope, I’m running the race for life, can’t run any harder, I’m running the race for life, to give somebody hope I’m running the race for life, until the battle’s over, I’m running the race for life, until the fight is won.
