Waiting For The Day

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 everything I ever did
couldn’t keep emotions hid
back when I was just a kid
ev’ry time we’d play
captured by a moving ball
from the time when I was small
have I really changed at all ?
waiting for the day

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 even now the merest sound
turns my head and heart around
as I start to near the ground
do you feel the same?
in your blood and in your bones
hard at work or in your home
with your friends or on your own
waiting for the game

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 in the morning when you wake
feel the longing feel that ache
always seems so much at stake
as the time draws near
no-one realy understands
how devotion rules our plans
what it is that makes us fans
still it pulls us here

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 you can try but can’t explain
moments filled with joy and pain
still we come back once again
in the same old way
this is how it’s always been
following your local team
ev’ry time the same old dream
waiting for the day
