Written In The Stars

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Four clubs remain and three are English
The Champions League draws to a close
A five star team might make it six
So why am I feeling so … morose?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Chelsea again, hell bent on revenge
That Russian and his inane grinning
I think we can do it but what if we don’t?
Sheer torture to picture them winning

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Beat United to live the sweetest of dreams
For ninety minutes I’d hold my breath
But imagine if the unthinkable happened
That’s a fate almost worse than death

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Lesser of the evils; Italians from Milan
I pray it’s them in the old Athens’ bars
Who will it be? Que sera, sera
For that will be written in the stars

Notes

Sometimes the fear of defeat consumes the burning desire to win.
