It’s Been A While

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A few devoted souls remember
The last time our striker scored
I never stopped to think
But it feels like months rather than weeks.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Berate him or support him
If they see that he tries they forgive him
If after an errant bounce he shrugs his shoulders
They erupt with expletives.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The squad’s got troubles so he’s always picked
And every week he’ll be waiting
In the box or lingering on the wing
Hoping to finish a perfect pass.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 ‘As soon as he gets one, the rest will follow’
If you say it enough times it makes you feel better
So I’ll repeat it under my breath
When he spoons it over the bar again.
