OH the lights tonight are so bright
I look up into the moon
My smile is so big so happy
I feel the love pump through my veins
I am ready I want it
I do what I am suppose to do
I want it sooooo badly
I try but it just doesn?t do what I want it to do
I hold the tears in, try not to punch the camera man
Its my 5th world cup back
Im ok Im fast Im good Im great Im better than this
Get back up there and do it again
I let some tears go like a child
Quickly distract myself and hang with my awesome team mates who came to watch
Gobble down dinner, drive back to our Austrian Home
Have a good laugh with my mother In-law
Decide Ill call my pops on this one and see what he has to say, what advice can he give me!
Im ready to do whatever it takes!
Oh the lights were so bright tonight!
