All My Own Work

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It came to me.
It was staring me right in the face
Then it hit me:
Own goal – me, right in the wrong place

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Like a fish, I was gutted
There was nothing I could do
My ‘keeper thought similarly
It came out of the blue

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 My team mates all looked away
No-one said a word
There was an awful silence
The loudest ever heard

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 It was forever memorable
My very first own goal
Ever since the ground swallowed me
I’ve been living in this hole
