Short Memory

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I stepped into your car
You were pretty early though it wasn’t far
Stop for your family
They want to come too, they want to see
March into the love ground
Watch the clcok ticking, hands come around
Fever is in the air
This a big one, show you how we care
Soldiers in red and white
One against the other, battling tonight
We’re a depleted side
We are not worthy, can’t stop this tide
Shock as we take the lead
Straight from a young gun, we’ve sown the seed
Bring on the victory
This is scrappy, that don’t matter to me
Sit as they equalise
My head in my hands I close my eyes
Lying on the ropes now
Their idol with the ball, he takes the bow
As he lights up the ball
And strikes it in the net, he has it all
Leaving this theatre stage
This losing feeling makes me come of age
Wait for a better day
Everyone is peak, we play our way
I stepped into your car
You drove me home, it wasn’t far.
