Distance

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Nearing the end of the season
And for us and our opponents today
There’s nothing to play for
Play-off hopes faded but relieved we’re safe.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 So we’re going to both kick the ball around for a while
The fixtures list demands it
But don’t get me wrong I’m happy I’m here
To watch the season draw to a close.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Would I have travelled hundreds of miles away
On a Tuesday night
To watch a meaningless fixture?
No.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So I watch these away fans.
They’re so passionate about something
That many find so insignificant.
I can’t help but admire that.
