No Time Added On

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We don’t talk much
beyond the weather,
but we can talk football
forever and ever.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Drive into the box,
mark the man in space,
a shared language, we
can kick all over the place.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Your personal terms met.
Time for a fresh dawn.
Our commentary box quiet,
your armchair view gone.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Our home game ended,
and there’s no time added on.



This is about my son who recently moved to his own place. With him leaving a key reason of mine to watch football on TV has gone.

It takes away an important element of how we communicate that I’m certainly missing.
