Emotions on Match Day

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Before I’m fully conscious, not yet opened an eye
That familiar feeling floods me like a natural high.
The tingles in my body, the adrenal dancing on its way
Alert me in an instant to the arrival of Match Day.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 My beloved team are off to do battle,
Excitement mounts and my nerves start to rattle.
Anticipation rising, don’t let us head for a fall
Heart does a flutter with every kick of the ball.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Turbulent emotions make roller coasters look tame
Happiness is hinging on the outcome of the game
As low as the ocean-bed, and as high as a jet
All for eleven men, who I’ve never even met!
