Air Of Hope

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 To back the boys for victory
I tied a balloon on to a tree
Round, full-bodied, full of gas
Believing we can break free from the past
We can win this time, you’ll see

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Small symbol of white and red hope
Bobbed around this sunny morn
It seems much smaller than before
Before we even rise to give appaluse
I sense approaching a false dawn



Funny now that the tournament has actually started, my optimism has faded in a timid mousy sort of way. I have spotted words like Brazil, Germany and Argentina on my wall chart…
