1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 never thought love could feel this way
never thought i’d hear it or ever see the day
sometimes the words aren’t deep enough to say
it’s just football love actually

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 all of that stuff you just love to put me through
all of those last-minute crazy things you do
all of that torment that makes me feel blue
when nothing else matters actually

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 even in the moment when time stands still
even in that second when the love finds the will
great expectations that never fit the bill
in football love actually

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 hooked like a marriage or a fish from stream
gripped like a kitten and sucked into a dream
taken as a child and forever they’re your team
but that’s the way it happens – actually

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 sometimes you wonder if this is just a game
screaming out loud will it always be the same
or someday some way will everything change
but football love doesn’t actually

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 and one day it’s over – when you let go
sitting in a bar maybe quiet and all alone
staring at some screen and then what do you know
you finally go and crack it actually

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 all of those years in the pleasure and the pain
coasting in the sunshine then falling in the rain
but deep down I always knew the time’d come again
and you’d finally beat Arsenal..actually.



(I just can’t understand why it took 17 goes..that’s all !)
sad but true footnote..
Beatles could be wrong shock..sometimes money can buy love..actually.
Apologies to Michael and all Arsenal fans out there..but every dog has its day..except Basil of course..
