ROBERTO BAGGIO

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I do not know if you remember him
I do; wore Italy’s colours once.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 He’s the guy who got them single handedly
into the 1994 world cup soccer finals
and when it mattered the most
blew it in the penalty shoot out.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I don’t know if he’s forgiven himself
I have.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Somethings aren’t destined to be,
and yet –
there’s a tragic beauty…
in loss, in ruins.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I’ll remember him, always
he tried, you know.
