Pressin’ Toward the Finish

by Joe Anfuso

Genre: Country

Lyrics

I started this walk years ago,
full of love and faith.
I knew it was a long, long road,
probably be home late.
But one thing I didn’t know
back when I was young:
the real heroes in this race are usually unsung.

CHORUS
But I’m pressin’ toward the finish
pressin’ toward the finish
pressin’ toward the finish
and ’til it’s finished, I’ll run.

When I first left the starting blocks,
thought I’d never quit.
But then life hit me with its curves,
and all I could do was sit.
But I’m not one to lick my wounds,
year after year after year.
I let Him pick me up again,
gave Him all my tears.

CHORUS
And I’m pressin’ toward the finish
pressin’ toward the finish
pressin’ toward the finish
and ’til it’s finished, I’ll run.

It wasn’t all that long ago,
I was just a kid,
skippin’ through the sunlit fields,
not carin’ what I did.
But now the sun is sinkin’ low,
light is growin’ dim.
I’m gonna sprint the course that’s left
with all of my heart for Him.

CHORUS
And I’m pressin’ toward the finish
pressin’ toward the finish
pressin’ toward the finish
and ’til it’s finished, I’ll run.
