Lyrics:

THE FINISH LINE
By Daniel Brennan

(VERSE)
A young boy returns to the sea side,
Where his mother was lost in the rip tide
Washed away are the castles he made,
To shield a queen lovely and fair
In his arms is a beach ball -
Her last breath of air

A widower goes through the motions,
Ticking on, though the clock hands are frozen
At night time he sweetens the air,
With the perfume that she used to wear
He drifts into dreaming
She waits for him there

(CHORUS)
I've been criticized many a time,
For not finishing things I begin
But true love has no finish line,
When two hearts are racing, both of them win

(VERSE)
Your life is an empty cathedral
What's it worth if it's not filled with people?
We are fortunate picture frames,
Moths in relief against others' flames
Time may snuff lights you love,
But their warmth will remain

(CHORUS)
I've been criticized many a time,
For not finishing things I begin
But true love has no finish line,
When two hearts are racing, both of them win
Both of them win
Both of them win
