Came up through selectors
A tick upon a page
Bolder than your training
Younger than your age
15 miles at daybreak - an impulse deep inside
A shower and rubdown and a quiet sense of pride

Fame can take you far away from home
The wind and rain they chill you to the bone
A leader on the sports page, you reap what you have sown
And it's just another moment on your own

It wasn't for the money, the trophies or champagne
A victory for the inner man, an echo to your name
A lineball in the slipstream, shake a thousand hands
A minute in the spotlight in a thousand foreign lands

And fame can take you far away from home
The roaring crowd they chill you to the bone
A leader on the sports page, you reap what you have sown
And it's just another moment on your own

The crowd declares a hero - but heroes seldom last
Your private life is front-page news until your tune has passed
Jetlagged in December, towels and Staminade
Your name's up on the scoreboard and the ad is for aftershave

And fame can take you far away from home
Long distance romance on a hotel phone
And your old friends seem so distant and you reap what you have sown
And it's just another moment on your own.
