Up There With The Feeling

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 what is it ? taking us shaking us
pulling tugging here in our hearts
and though no one can say
one thing’s for sure
it’s up there this feeling

sleepless on Christmas Eve
the space suit the toy Dalek
or that new pair of football boots
what if they forgot or couldn’t afford it?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 up there with the night before exams
seeing the Beatles for the first time – live
or getting your first tele
up there with rushing home for Doctor Who
in black and white
going overseas falling in love
and your first kiss
or crying at the end of E.T

filling your mind and being

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 and can you remember a ticket
pinned to your wall?
hours days weeks months waiting
staring hoping counting down the days
a pantomime a circus your first gig
or that first game
then suddenly
just like today it arrives
and you ask yourself what is the best bit
the waiting or the game itself?
who can truly say
but look and listen ..
