"Marathon Man" as written by and Eric Carmen....
Twenty years with my brain in a book
Tryin' to find out who I am
Endless nights and Olympian dreams
Of a race I never ran

Someone's callin' my name (someone's callin' my name)
It's the crowd in the stands (it's the crowd in the stands)
Don't know how I became
What I suddenly am

Marathon man, keep a-runnin'
Marathon man, keep a-runnin'
I've been searchin' so long
But the answer is finally at hand
I'm a marathon man

Wind is gone and my head's in a haze
But I must keep up the pace
Got to think about strategy here
If I hope to win the race

Someone's callin' my name (someone's callin' my name)
It's the crowd in the stands (it's the crowd in the stands)
Concentrate on the pain
Put the soul in command

Marathon man, keep a-runnin'
Marathon man, keep a-runnin'
I've been searchin' so long
But the answer is finally at hand
I'm a marathon man

Wasting my youth
Chasing dreams, testing truth
Taking turns being deceived
And deceivin'
Bound with a rope
Made of heroes and hope
Till I found nothin' left
To believe in
Marathon man, keep a-runnin'
Marathon man, keep a-runnin'
I've been searchin' so long
But the answer is finally at hand
I'm a marathon man ha!

I've been searchin' so long
But the answer is finally at hand
I'm ha!
I'm a marathon man
Ha! Marathon man
