1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 After the game
I do not leave the pitch
But linger with my memories
I hear once more the songs
The names chanted
I hear the ball crash into the
Roof of the net
I relive each goal again and again
Afraid that when I leave the pitch
The goals remain here
And do not leave with me
I stand here in the strange
Light of expectation
Willing the past to return
Unable to leave.
