York City, May ’03

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Play-off chances gone again
Another fruitless May
Oh-so-close but not to be
It’s a meaningless last day.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Hear the cheers of other teams
Who’ve reached Division Two
Console yourself that next year
We’ll be back in red and blue.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Through empty summer days and weeks
Hope slowly heals the pain
It’s not that long till August
And then dreaming starts again.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The club is ours; think what we’ve got
To show for our devotion
We live to fight another year –
This time we’ll win promotion.
