For The Ones Who Run

Nice day for a tumble in the wind
Passé for the season coming in
We barely see them rolling in the dusty light
Crowns of 
death defying life

CHORUS:
For the ones who run
Oh, the race is on
For the ones who run
Oh, the race is on

Runway out of Memphis, flying again
Last day for the smile of a good friend
And I can just see you looking over at the canyon rim
Is it as beautiful right now as it was then?

CHORUS

Oh, you gave me the keys and you left me a map
And the memories are more than a photograph
But it more than hurts that we never took that drive
When I’m feeling the grief that you’re not coming back
Fear is filling me with all of the days that I lack
But it’s your love that makes forever come alive
For the ones who run

For the ones who run the race is on
For the ones who run the race is on
Forever come alive, forever come alive

 

CHORUS
