lyrics

so i read a postcard from a girl i used to know
she asked some questions about my life
never wrote her back, didn’t know what to tell her
i know i can’t sell her my lies

i can craft my story, tell her everything is fine
tell her i’ve been smoking light
i know she won’t believe me anyway
she just wants me to say i’m alright

i’ll tell her life is a marathon
and i’ve been counting my steps
i know life is a marathon
don’t know how much we have left

sing my songs of longing—desperate pleas for love
they are really not that desperate
i haven’t made much money but i’ve made many friends
they will be there when i’m losing steam

doesn’t really matter how many records i sell
doesn’t matter cause i won’t let it
why would i want to be some one hit wonder?
i’m happy being underground

cause i know life is a marathon
and i’m not running for time
i know life is a marathon
and i’m not falling behind

who needs a sense of purpose, we all just need some trust
to find the path that is least chosen
it took me long enough to get my shit together
i’m better at owning my fate

maybe i’m just wired to write these survival songs
for all the ones who really need them
i can make a difference one person at a time
i got bigger things in mind but they can wait

cause i know life is a marathon
i’m gonna lunge at the finish
yeah i know life is a marathon
fuck man i’m in it to win it
