They will never walk alone


A tribute to the 96 people that lost their lives in the crush at Hillsborough, and also to their families that still live with the hurt.: 15 April 1989. You'll never walk alone.




On April fifteenth nineteen eighty nine
upon the Yorkshire path
the liver bird made its way
hand in hand they sang

Too praise their mighty heroes
the crimson army
searching for their throne
and sang you’ll never walk alone

Upon the field of Hillsborough
there was no battlefield
in the Sheffield grass
the game that never was

But death in the crush
and football lost its meaning
the cries grew from home too home
together no one walks alone

For the sad unneeded loss
justice been fiercely sought
but still the fight must be
for those ninety six angles

Who look on with pride
as the heavens hears their song
its echoes shook the nations bone
the dead will never walk alone

Ninety six poor souls
perished on that fateful day
and still the justice flames burn
forever in our hearts we cry

They left to watch a football match
hand in hand forever more
they didn’t make the journey home
but they will never walk alone
