This dream we share

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 this love this love – this dream we share
this song i sing – this shirt i wear
this game we play – these plans we make
this field we plough – this chance we take
this aching heart – these words i shout
this longing deep – within-without
the fleeting highs – the lowest lows
the way that glory comes and goes

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 this hanging on – this far off goal
this love i feel- within my soul
this helplessness when we’re apart
the way you play within my heart
the way we are a living team
who ebb and flow as would a stream
who share these feelings openly
whatever end our fate might be

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 this love this love – this sweet addiction
this bond of hope and contradiciton
this keeping faith when chances fade
in spite of and all these games we played
the way we stay upon you side
in fog and snow we tried and tried
to lift you up away or home
to rise above this danger zone

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 this blinding faith in only you
that clouds my thoughts and all i do
those times away the sleepless nights
this battle long-this endless fight
this mighty trust that will not stray
that holds my breath until the day
this promise made-this badge i wear
this torch i carry-everywhere

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 this waiting for a tiny sign
that might cement this love divine
remember us in rain and sun
for we are many but you are one


A nod to FAN-atical Supporters… and Teamaholics…Composed upon hearing a Radio 5 piece on ‘football-fan’ research carried out at Bristol Uni. Apparently an incredibly high percentage of fans- IN A FIRE- would save their programmes first…above all else..think about it?
