the day USA women soccer team died

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It was tearful night in Mia Hamm’s heart,
All alone she stood on the turf,
Dreaming of hoisting the glorious nineteen ninety nine world cup;
Now, a spectator, she will be watching the world cup final.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The agony will linger years after years;
The American women soccer team,
The defending champions,
Died on their own soil

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 At the hand of the weak German team.
The stadium’s lights, turned off,
The grassy pitch, a fading in color
While the nation mourns for four more years.
