When there is a football match on the TV I switch it
On the last ten minutes of the match my boredom threshold
Is low and to sit there watching the game for ninety minutes, really!
I used to play football as a boy, goalkeeper of all things then
I grew up and chased girls instead which often was painful
Like accidently falling in love, that happened frequently.
Falling in love is painful walking into walls and being nice
To children related to the object of my adoration
Then the pain of being rejected long walks and dark thoughts
Under a night sky, bittersweet flagellation why did she leave me.
This too ended now I`m a goalkeeper again defend the goal and try
To save the ball death is kicking my way
