Intro -x4-: C  C  F

     C             F
Well I'm so sad tonight
        C                  F
And the words won't come out right
     C                    F
It's been a long day on the track
        C              F
And it's stamina that I lack


C           Am     F     C
So won't you run to me tonight
G                        F
Do not pretend that we're just lovers
C   G    F    G    F   
But I'll only ever be
  C  G   F   G    F G C
a middle distance runner

Interlude: C F C F

  C                    F
Well my heart is beating hard
  C                            F
And the mouth with the shot at the start
  C                      F
And my legs tremble from strain
  C                        F
But by the finish line I am drained


C           Am     F     C
So won't you run to me tonight
G                        F
Do not pretend that we're just lovers
C   G    F    G    F   
But I'll only ever be
  C  G   F   G    F G C
a middle distance runner

Interlude -x2-: C F C F
  
 C               F
Well I'm so proud tonight
 C                 F
Of the woman you've become
 C                      F
And I'm just too tired to fight
 C                F
So my darling I'll succomb


C                 Am     F     C
But you'll have to run to me tonight
G                        F
Tonight I will love you forever
C   G    F    G    F   
But I'll only ever be
  C  G   F   G    F G C
a middle distance runner
