Away End

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’m in the visitors’ end,
the away end, and it’s not easy,
watching the town where you live
play the town where you’re from.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Being verbally abused by the fans
from the town where you live and
not having traveled with the fans
from the town where you’re from.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 In the away end,
the ‘dir-ty nor-thern bastards’ end;
being weighed up by a defensive wall
of high-viz jackets,

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 being filmed by the police,
just in case you do something criminal,
for the record. Say cheese,
show them your good side. After all,

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 to them, you are just another face in the away end:
another face who set off too early,
traveled too far, and
paid too much to get in.
