1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It was once said
that football was more important
than life and death.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Out in Angola these words prove wrong.
There is fear we can’t imagine
that words can’t begin to explain.
Lying still amid the gunshot
in a world of fear and pain.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The shooting nobody anticipated,
we all pray, never again.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Our hearts go out to that Togo team
and our support.
For whatever they decide;
to return or to withdraw
for your grief is shared by football’s nations all.
