Lyrics

The Finish Line

When you reach the finish line
And you set a record time
Act like you’ve been there, act like you’ve been there before

When you cross the goal line
And you’re ready for prime time
Act like you’ve been there, act like you’ve been there before
Act like you’ve been there, act like you’ve been there before

I’m riding the bench, I can’t get into the game
I worked so hard but coach ain’t calling my name
I’ll lift ‘til they close the gym
I’ll live to help my team win
I’ll push and I’ll push on through the pain

When you reach the finish line
And you set a record time
Act like you’ve been there, act like you’ve been there before

When you cross the goal line
And you’re ready for prime time
Act like you’ve been there, act like you’ve been there before
Act like you’ve been there, act like you’ve been there

The end of the game, at last I’m getting my chance
They scream my name, the crowd goes nuts in the stands
And once I help my team win
We’ll dance ‘til they close the gym
We’ll chant ‘til we can’t still with the fans

Repeat Chorus

If you see it, you can be it
And if you know just what you want from life
Open up and take a bite
