The rat race isn’t getting any easier
Running as fast as you can in circles
And all you can hope for is some crappy medal
Consider what would happen if you tried a different sport?
Kick off those tired sneakers and grab a javelin?
Maybe this was her Olympic chance.
Everything hung into balance.
Did she have what it would take?
As she leaned in for a kiss she had the answer
Looking for the gold, she was settling for the bronze.
Second place might be first loser
It might even be the most frustrating since you were that close
Leaving you wondering what more you could have done
Viewing life that way makes it so frustrating
Everyone fails to win all the time
Remember that and be happy when you medal
