City ’til I Die

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 My heart beats faster with each passing hour,
My nerves are flaying at the thought,
A once proud club is at deaths door,
No solace can be sought.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 No floodlit nights, no sunlit days,
No breathing in the thrill,
No fears, no tears, no joy, no pain,
No singing out at will.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No Wolves or Wembley, no Liverpool,
No great escape or more,
No heroes, foes or enemies,
No last bus home, no score.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 No red and gold, no tales be told,
No dancing girls, no sound,
Only emptiness and decay is left,
On the Bradford City ground.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The ghosts of heroes from years gone by,
Wander through the gloom,
Whilst the pain and torment we suffer now,
Is pending on our doom.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 One hundred years, ten thousand tears,
A million questions, why?
But no matter what the answer is,
I’m City ‘Til I Die.”
