MY EYES HAVE SEEN THE GLORY

An army amassed just like centuries before, in a city made famous by sieges of yore.

Where Constantinople and Byzantium once stood, A new army now did descend like a flood.

An army of thousands in livery of red, Liverbirds on their chests and a dream in their heads.

With smiles on their faces and songs in their hearts, of hope a new era was waiting to start.

Stood on the North Tribune I looked all around, a sea of red swamping three sides of the ground.

Flags, scarves and banners that covered the crowd, a show of red strength to make Chairman Mao proud.

I surveyed the scene in awe and in bliss, How could we fail on a stage such as this?

I reckoned without an AC Milan team, with the class to make nightmares out of our dreams.

YNWA grew in strength, as did I, and I sang, as if it was for the last time.

Looking back now I can't honestly say, that as I sang, I thought we would find a way to come back,

but I wanted the whole world to see, We still had pride, we were still Liverpool FC.

That chorus will live on in legend and lore, Cruyff said he had heard nothing like it before.

Maradona said it made him convert to a Red, Luis said it spurred them to rise from the dead.

Then came the reverse of our first half...
