The Retrospective

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I travelled to Edinburgh
in 2003 to see Hearts’ ground
Tynecastle and my childhood club

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 During my travels I have seen
Also Leeds,Newcastle,Nottingham
and Middlesbrough
and Darlington
I would stay forever in
the Princes Street

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But that was the wish
The history of one club
of Bosnia and Herzegovina is
recorded in Edinburgh
Hearts hosted Velez Mostar
A few years later there were
sad events in Mostar
But many people there remember
When Hearts welcomed me
in 2003
I had so little time
I only went to Tynecastle
and saw Princes Street
I would dream
of the Princes Street always
I know that Hibs are existing as rivals of Hearts in Edinburgh
But in the same way
Juventus and Torino exist
God bless Princes Street
