The final is in sight!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 we won we lost we drew,
we fought we cried we jumped with glea
the echo of the referees whistle
the mud on my clothes and skin
the tunnel vision of the goalpost in sight
the heart racing to win the fight
the laughs the hugs the tackling slides
the kicks the bumps
the sending off cards
the heart beat in the ear from a penalty strike
another game another one begun
it seems too long it’s not long enough
our name’s in print our trophies we won
some never play
some never watch
some hate the game
that takes a part of my love.
