How can no one hear

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Tell me how and I may understand
how an entire nation cannot hear
a city crying upon its knees in
hurt, anger and confusion

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Did no one listen to us all those years ago
To the Liverpudlians and Evertonians alike
Telling them of how they kick you when you’re down

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Twenty two years no one listens to a crying city
The fans of old and new alike,
a city united more so then was ever seen before
How could so many be ignored

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And the tears keep flowing because,
now they see, they’re just beginnning to listen
to what we’ve been saying to them for more than two decades now
Such a long time for no one to listen

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 We were there ready and waiting
for those ready to listen to hear what we’d been saying
Whether within the city walls or hundreds of miles away
separated only by distance always there in spirit in our Anfield church

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 And ask yourself were the people of Liverpool all that surprised
For we have known what they are capable of for twenty two years
And we have tried in vain to spread our story but no one listened to us
And ask yourself how can none listen to a crying city?

This is something I’ve been thinking of writing for a few weeks now its slightly longer then I had originally intended it to be but its a piece I am quite proud of
