Life we dream

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The breeze upon our faces
on terraces and benches
with laughter and love
trust and belief
be there and console
revel in the glory
fight on
even when the fight’s done and told

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Give what we can
watch them do what we cannot
jump with athletic joy
cry tears at the final whistle
whether we win or lose
pride ourselves in our players
our team, our muse.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Forgo everything
when the needs must
see them in a pub
watch them at home
the back of a bus
on a small black and white
on the worst television of all
in a hotel lobby
or at Anfield’s bustling ball

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Thrill at the kicks, shots, passes and runs
sit upon the terraces and benches
and learn
the breeze of history upon our faces
teaches us so much of life
of what we’ve seen
other than the life we own
of the life we dream
of the life we dream
