THIS TIME NEXT YEAR
© ARLON BENNETT


WE HAD OUR MOMENTS TOOK OUR CHANCES
DID OUR BEST AGAINST A TEAM WITH ALL THE ANSWERS
AND NOW IT'S TIME TO LOCK THE GATES AND MEND THE FENCES
STILL I CAN'T WAIT 'TILL THIS TIME NEXT YEAR

I RODE THE TRAIN HOME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
WONDERING HOW WE COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT
NOW THE TIME HAS COME TO TURN OUT THE LIGHTS..
STILL I CAN'T WAIT 'TILL THIS TIME NEXT YEAR

YOU DON'T WIN FOR LOSING
YOU CAN'T HIDE THE PAIN
THERE'S NO CONSOLATION IN THIS GAME
THE CHAMPAIGN HAS RUN DRY
FOR THE OTHER TEAM TONIGHT
STILL I CAN'T WAIT 'TILL THIS TIME NEXT YEAR

WE'LL BE TOGETHER AGAIN SOMETIME IN THE SPRING
RENEWING OUR VOWS FOR THAT CHAMPIONSHIP RING
BUT TODAY WE STOW THE PLATE AND PACK THE GEAR
I CAN'T WAIT 'TILL THIS TIME NEXT YEAR
NO I CAN'T WAIT TILL THIS TIME NEXT YEAR
