Flowers and Football Tops Lyrics
Why you not home yet
Baby its getting late
I wish you would be home by now.
Door bell rings
Who could it be at this time
Police on my left and right
My son's not coming home tonight
Baby, they don't need to show
Its over, I know
anonymous Jul 7th 2012 report
The above post is almost correct. 'Flowers and football tops' though refers too the memorial at the site where his son has been killed. People lay them down to pay tribute too him. Wether it's the team he supported or there rivals, it's a sign he was respected and loved.
It's about a dad waiting for his son to come home. He's getting really worried, and then the police come. They don't even have to say it. He knows that his son is dead. He doesn't want to see the body, he doesn't need further confirmation that his son is dead.I think that "flowers and football tops" refers to the son being on a soccer team, and the team comes in their uniforms to pay tribute to the son. The dad is obviously sad that his son is "just another number" to the police and his daughter is with him and he can't stand the thought of her being without her brother, so maybe the brother and sister were close. And then the last part is just the father praying to the so, trying to impart how much he was treasured and loved.
