Today

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Today 24 years ago we lost so many innocent red souls.
On their behalf today, we still fight to achieve our goals.
It’s today I stand on Anfield Road with a tear in my eye.
Today I still shake my head; it’s today I still wonder why.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 No football at Anfield today, though the Kop is full inside.
No goals to score today, no kissing the badge with pride.
Today the Kop is silent in its dignity, so vast yet so tamed.
The Kop’s enemy today is corruption and every liar shamed.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It’s a day when it can be a struggle to find the right words.
Today we should cherish life, of our freedom that of birds.
Today is about all the victims, the names not read out loud.
Hillsborough took them too, although they escaped the crowd.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Today’s a day people treat differently, just how it should be.
Today we make the news, our open wounds for all to see.
Today’s spotlight can be a platform, some ignore the glare.
But whatever you do today, please just show that you care.

Today we remember all the victims of Hillsborough.
