Wherever We Find Ourselves

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Wherever we find ourselves
Life we know on hold
Terraces we stood on closed
Seats in stands lie cold
Rituals on match days
Little lost routines
How they seem quite futile now
In these current scenes

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Silly claims like who is best
Who sits at the top
Who’s for relegation
Ev’rything on stop
All now quite irrelevant
Time to love and care
Time for isolation
Time to learn to share
Time to help your neighbour
Be they young or old
Even if your shirt is green
And their shirt is gold
Even if their shirt is red
Purple pink or blue
Even if it’s black or white
Or some other hue

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Like a flood it vanished
In a flash so strong
Ev’rything we know and trust
Or relied upon
Blown away to catch us here
Finding in our hearts
What keeps us together
Though we’re far apart
Thoughts they turn to something else
To our fellow man
Caught up in this strangest time
Few can understand

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Wherever we find ourselves
Life we know on hold
Terraces we stood on closed
Seats in stands lie cold
Rituals on match days
Little lost routines
How they seem quite futile now
In these current scenes
