27 Years To The Day

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A day so many life’s torn apart, never able to rebuild.
A City left gripped in sadness, all hearts with sorrow filled
This anniversary for many people will mean different things.
For me I’ll cry as ever, as tears this day always brings.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I think of the needless loss of life, on the day and beyond.
A tragedy that formed many a solid friendship and bond.
People that stood by us, through all the lies and deceit.
People who understood justice, until the system we beat

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Now all those years have flown by, twenty seven to the day.
So many hopes and dreams, Hillsborough cruelly took away.
And here I am at Anfield, the final service to ever take place.
But it won’t be the final time that tears trickle down my face.
