Just a Game

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s not that it’s just a game
Tattered dreams and residue
of yesterday

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Old timers drifting back to goals
Caught in the nets and nest
of history

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Rose tinted rattles and scarves
For goalposts standing in Q’s
Laced up around the ground

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Those floodlights nights shone on heroes
Haloes caps and bobble hats
Nicotine and Nutmegs

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Once we dreamed that shirt was ours
No names no logos numbers all
I dared to dream….of one word GOAL!
