Lost: Presumed Missed

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When you were airbrushed faces
On newspaper pages
We could only look at you

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When you were ten men
You began to fight then
And we were with you

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 You lost on penalties
The polite English mentality
Can’t shoot to kill

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 You gave everything
And were left with nothing
At last it feels like we’re on the same side

Notes

Just as it was getting interesting, England are out, beaten 3-1 on penalties by Portugal.
