1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Don’t know about the ways of the universe
Don’t know about learning and words I never spoke
Or ever tried to spell don’t know about the other side of heaven
But I know all too well the beauty of your rhythm
The strength in your willing limbs the symmetry of your genius
King of the world with the Anfield pitch as your throne
And I am racing you breathless and still faster
And I am racing you shouting your name with mine
To the wide immeasurable plains of the stars
Falling to the patience of earth were you and I prowl
Where every wall is a goal every stone is a ball
And every moment is a child hungry to dream…
