Football Lighthouse

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There’s a dream that I left back in childhood
In the overgrown grass down a lane

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 On a park named my very own Anfield
A place where the child used to play

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Where the days stretched out long in the summers
And the shadows of age had no stage

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 On a park where I danced down the wings
Jinking runs where the child loved to play

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 There’s a dream that I harbour from childhood
Where the ghosts of my youth choose to play

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 And the lighthouse of football shines brightly
On that pitch where the child aye still plays.
