Standing Near Me

They talk about the game from every angle
And when they stop they talk about FIFA games.

He can’t stay in one place as his body shakes
When he screams at the referee.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 There’s a man who stands nears me.
He’s watching the pitch but not hearing anything
Only the headphones in his ears.

She shouts and he shouts and they both
Drink tea at half time to keep warm.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 There’s a man who stands near me.
He’s got a quick wit that makes me laugh
And his friends can’t compete.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 There’s a man who stands near me.
He doesn’t move an inch and he never looks
Like he’s having much fun.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 All these people stand near me.
I don’t know their names but I know
I’ll see them on a Saturday afternoon at home.
