The two situations

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Football was played when I lived through horror
In those fearful uncertain days I could listen
BBC WORLD SERVICE
in my Sarajevo flat

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 In those early days of the war
I was stressed but I listened to the
commentary of FA CUP semi final
Liverpool v Pourtsmouth
It was very sunny day of the April 1992

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Something is different now,
There I was listening that BBC commentary
in the early April of 1992 and the shooting on the streets

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 But for me, in that horror,
there was the football somewhere else,
Far away

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Now football is stopped everywhere
I can’t be closed in the appartment listening
the commentary of
some far away match as well

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 For the moment there are not the matches,
But nothing is going on the streets,
Nothing ! Fortunately In the manner of Catch 22

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 But only in the manner of Catch 22

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 This time is not quite comfortable either
