Final Place

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Sun shines but a cool wind blows
At the resting place where nobody goes
Some faded words on cold white stone
An old adage, “You’ll Never Walk Alone”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 On this day of days, no shadows fall
I wonder, is he remembered at all?
From a distance I offer a silent prayer
As running hares bound without a care

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 When next you cheer from your safe seat
Think of him, the man you didn’t meet
A supporter in search of a final place
Anyone’s fate but for God’s good grace

Notes

Justice for the 96.

* A special thank you to the fans of Glasgow Celtic for their show of solidarity on the night of the PSV Eindhoven game at Anfield this week. Their presentation of a special “Hillsborough” banner to The Kop was very moving and much appreciated. You’ll NEVER Walk Alone.
