The Penalty Taker

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I am alone
I am the lonliest man
In the world
I stand in the silent stadium
Catching your breath
In my boots
Hitting your heart
Against the goalie’s hands
And all the time
You are hoping
He doesn’t catch it
I am alone
I am the lone man
I grant your dreams
Perhaps
Perhaps
Perhaps…
