To win just once would be enough
For those who've lost in life or love
For those who've lost their guile and nerve
Their innocence and their drive ind verve
For those who feel they've been mis-treated
Discriminated, robbed, or cheated
To claim one victory inspired
To win just once is their desire

To win just once
To win just once
To win just once
To win just once
That would be enough

To win just once against the odds
And once be smiled on by the gods
To race with speed along the track
Break the tape and not look back
To never have considered losing
As if to win is by your choosing
Bare your soul for all to find
An honest heart and an open mind

To win just once
To win just once
To win just once
To win just once
That would be enough

So come on all ye full time, small town heroes
Cast away your inbred fears of
Standing out from all the rest
The cynics and the pessimists
The self-indulgent, almost rich
The blatant hurlers on the ditch
Time is passing, so come on
And face the ball, the game is on

To win just once
To win just once
To win just once
To win just once
That would be enough
(That would be enough)

To win just once
To win just once
To win just once
To win just once
That would be enough

    General CommentWhat a song. Describes living in Rural Ireland nowadays to me. Small town heroes. "The blatant hurlers on the ditch" hits home some how.
