ASHFORD & SIMPSON lyrics - It's The Long Run

ASHFORD & SIMPSON
"It's The Long Run"
(Nick Ashford / Valerie Simpson)

[Chorus:]
It's the long run
It's the finish that counts, baby
It's the long run
It's the finish that counts in the end

[Chorus]

Some folks walk through life with their eyes closed
Giving up the moment
A little bit of trouble shows
It's too rough
It's too tough
They complain constantly
Never going the distance or far enough to see

[Chorus]

You have the right to feel the joy and the tears
But a moment can't carry the weight of the tender loving years
You can't take it
You can't make it
You won't try to see the light
Rather throw your hands up and give up without a fight

[Chorus]

It's too rough
It's too tough
They complain constantly
Never going the distance or far enough to see

[Chorus]
