This is the first song I've written, and it's basically just a bunch of words that I spilled onto a page, so feedback would be greatly appreciated!

So I wrote a song...

So, today I wrote a song... for now, I'm not sure what to title it, so I figured I'd share it with all of you lovely folks to see if you have any ideas.

the heat rises up from the road in waves
summer sizzling on the black pavement
there’s potholes and pockmarks
there’s twists and turns
wonders and wanderers
ups and downs
but we’ll keep on running
yeah we’ll keep on running

we’re gonna run the race
till the battle’s won
we’re gonna run the race
till kingdom come
and the sky is turning brilliant
as the darkness turns away
and the stars are shining bright again
they’re dancing overhead
but even the brightest suns are dim
compared to the Light that’s all around
we’re gonna run the race
we’re gonna run the race

here we stumble and fall down to our knees
trouble standing over us hollering
but we will not fear cause
we’ll call your name
and you’ll help us stand we’re
not afraid
and we’ll keep on running
yeah we’ll keep on running

we’re gonna run the race
till the battle’s won
we’re gonna run the race
till kingdom come
and the sky is turning brilliant
as the darkness turns away
and the stars are shining bright again
they’re dancing overhead
but even the brightest suns are dim
compared to the Light that’s all around
we’re gonna run the race
we’re gonna run the race

(run the race run the race)
nothing can stop us
(run the race)
our God is with us
(by our side)
we’ll keep on running
(never stop)
can you see the finish line
(see the finish line)
nothing can stop us
(run the race)
our God is with us
(by our side)
we’ll keep on running
(never stop)
can you see the finish line

we’re gonna run the race
till the battle’s won
we’re gonna run the race
till kingdom come
and the sky is turning brilliant
as the darkness turns away
and the stars are shining bright again
they’re dancing overhead
but even the brightest suns are dim
compared to the Light that’s all around
we’re gonna run the race
we’re gonna run the race

    This is so good!
    Have you put music to it yet, though?

    COOOOL!!!! You should probably call it Run The Race because that's what people will think of when they hear it

    It’s not often that you see a song on WtW. This one is really good!
