the vanishing race lyrics – air supply

the vanishing race

sun, i can’t slow you down
run, build on sacred ground
all of the leaves have blown away
ghosts on a distant highway
in a vanishing race
sleep, if your eyes must close
weep, over a poisoned rose
soon all the tears will blow away
dust on a distant highway
in the vanishing race
fly, closer to the sun
fight, ’till your world is one
soon all the stars will burn away
ghosts on a different highway
in the vanishing race
oh, shall we sleep tonight
oh, when there’s no hope in sight
take all your dreams and drive away
smoke on a distant highway
from the vanishing race
all my people
respect your mother earth
thank you for this life and this breath
and all my people’s strength
