you are like football

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 you are like football the grace and thrill
you are excitement a beach in Brazil
you are a stadium theatre of light
you are a temple brilliant as night

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 and you are like football
the way you endure
like flowers in deserts
where rain falls no more

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 you are a dream team here in my side
bursting with passion and flowing with pride
you are like longing a fan and a friend
you are an artist a song without end

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 you are a poem a page without lines
you are a dancer in games without time
out on the surface asleep in my bed
you are a football that spins in my head

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 and you are the final the ultimate sound
a roar or a hush that descends on the ground
you are a heartbeat when time won’t standstill
you are a shoot-out where nerves threaten skill

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 and you are like football
the way you pass by
a second a moment
a glance or a sigh

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 but more than some outcome and more than the score
more than the feeling those minutes before
more than your love or your soul or your breath
more than this question of life and of death
here at your feet keep me ever entwined
for you are like football forever thorough time
