Let’s Get On the Green Pitch

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Let’s get on the green pitch
Be our own devils or gods
No more waiting weeps
And no more sideline talks

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Let’s get on the grassy field
Before the dews drop off
There we shed our sweat
And there we taste our tear

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Let’s get on the cradle bed
Before the world wakes us
There we swing in our dream
And there we look up to stars

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Let’s get on with our ball
Before this magic stops
There we chase and fall
There our love never short

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Let’s get on and get on
Till that whistle shouts
No more games or dreams
No more breath and no more
