2 Leave a comment on verse 2 1 Frustration, elation,
With thousands just waiting
For one of their players to score.
And then it just happened,
The breakaway came
And the goalie laid stretched on the floor.
His gloved hands reached out
But the ball rolled on past
And the crowd went ballistic
As their team scored at last.
That’s football for you
And for all the supporters
As the cheering and singing
Rings out from all quarters.
What is it about football
That stirs hearts and souls?
It is more than the game
And it’s more than the goals.
I can’t explain it,
Others may try,
But it comes down to passion
For a game that won’t die.
