Lyrics

Well if I win some races
That don't mean I’m fastest
And it don't mean I’m better than anyone

And if I ride some horses
With great speed over courses
It's just cause you waited for me at the line

Cause for you I could win
For you I could trust myself
For you I could throw with abandon
Old glories or fame to the wind

Cause I never left you
And you never let me go

And I again had the glory
I’d give it up gladly
Oh how we sucked in the limelight,
And left 'best friends' behind
Now come walk beside me
To the end of this story
And I'll let you go gently
Among your own kind

Cause for you I can win
For you I can trust myself
For you I could throw with abandon
Old glories and fame to the wind

Cause I never left you
And you never let me go

For you I will win
For you I will trust myself
For you I could throw with abandon
Old glories and everything to the wind

Cause I never left you
And you never let me go
I never left you
And you never let me go
