"We Will Survive", by Gil Meriken

I could not let this comment disappear at the bottom of a  thread. Originally written by beat writer for Silver Screen and Roll, Gil Meriken:


First we were afraid
We were petrified
Kept thinking we could never win
Without you on our side
But we spent so many nights
Thinking how you did us wrong
We grew strong
We learned how to carry on
and so you’re back
from South Beach
With your new teammates
Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, you even took Z
We should have traded you for more
Instead putting up with all your shit
If we had known for just one second
That in Game 5 you would quit

Go on now go walk out the door
just turn around now
‘cause you’re not welcome anymore
weren’t you the one who tried to hurt us with goodbye
you think we’d crumble
you think we’d lay down and die

No not us
We will survive
as long there’s another game
We know we’ll stay alive
We still might make the playoffs
And if not there’s the lottery
and we’ll survive
We’ll survive

It took all the strength we had
not to fall apart
consoled ourselves
that J.J. Hickson would get to start
and we spent oh so many nights
just feeling sorry for ourselves
We used to cry
Now we hold our heads up high
and you see our team
completely new
We’re not the pushovers
that used to bow to you
and so you felt like dropping in
with your empty apologies 
we’re moving on now
have fun in Miami
