Yokohama Heartache

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Gerrard sits despondent,
all our hopes come to nothing.
But John Arne Riise has it right
— from the depths of last winter when
Chelsea beat us in the Cardiff Carling final,
we rose to take the Champions Cup.
Out of ashes rises a phoenix.
Beware! Liverpool rises again!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Christopher T. George


Liverpool 0, Sao Paulo 1.
World Club Championship, Yokohama, Japan, December 18 2005.
