The Day The Fans Came Back

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 it could be just a one-off
these days it’s hard to know
behind your mask you dare not ask
you’re grateful just to go
a little hope amid the dark
a glimpse of what we lack
while stood upon familiar steps
the day the fans came back

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 they start to take our temperatures
with care one at a time
a gap between us all in masks
as we await in line
we’re singing up here on the hill
we’re moving down a track
inside we know we’ve far to go
‘til al the fans are back

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 the game itself a joyous blur
for moments you forget
the stuff that’s going on out there
that will continue yet
you sip the flask that you have brought
you savour each attack
it’s far from normal on the hill
we’re grateful to be back

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 our world’s divided into tiers
the game provides distraction
it must be hard to play so much
without the fans reaction
you feel and see the team enjoy
the vibe the crowd the craic
however long it’s gonna be
it’s brilliant to be back
