It's been a long offseason
Time to give reasons
To the coach
Why my approach
To training
Is why I came in
Better
Faster
Hungrier
Stronger
So I can play longer
Sacrificing everything I can for the team
Because we all share in the same dream
To hoist that trophy
With poise that only
Champions are made of

chorus: This is the league and this is my dream

There may not be glory
In the story
Of my training regimen
To develop this specimen
I can't be hesitant
Or reticent
I have to train to win
Overcome the pain and then
Doing things others see as impossible
So I can be unstoppable
Watching film and studying the playbook
Hey look
I found a weakness to exploit
Gotta teach this to the boys
Because they're like my family
Bringing out the man in me
So I can turn into a beast
And unleash
My fury
Better hurry
There's no time to waste
Gotta pick up the pace
Because the speed in the league is lightning quick
With frightening hits
Gotta watch out as the timing gets
Tighter and tighter
As we're walking the wire
And fly a bit higher
As we try to aspire
To the level of champion
The regular season has begun

chorus:

I can feel the collective heartbeat of the fanbase
And taste
Victory
When we see
The home crowd
Go loud
During introductions
The whole world forgetting about their other functions
And luncheons
Millions of eyes
On the prize
As we rise
To the national anthem
Fandom
And pandemonium
Ensue
Rocking this venue
What we came to do
Is win for you
From the first snap
To the last clap
Everyone's throwing their hands back
Cheering every score and asking for more
This is what we came for
Hitting the hole and hitting it hard
Getting the goal with inches and yards
One win turns in
To a winning season
Giving our fans a reason
To believe in
Everything we do
As we play through
Injuries
And adversity
As our fans nervously
Hold their breath
'Til we make it to sudden death

chorus:

Everything escalates
And my heartbeat accelerates
As I anticipate
And listen to great debates
In the weeks leading up to the championship game
Every single name's
A celebrity
Using their identity
To brand their opinions
To millions
Watching every highlight
They're wondering if I might
Be in over my head
Because of something I said
Taken completely out of context
It's on next
When we get past the spectacle
We'll let it all
Be decided on the field
Where we'll refuse to yield
It's finally time for the final kickoff
There's no time for anyone to hit soft
Every moment feels like a lifetime
As the lights shine
No time to remember how we got here
It's all clear
As the kickoff is returned
And we learn
If our sacrifice has been enough
Both sides are tough
We all want it with every ounce of our blood, sweat and tears
We've all got our scars from getting here
There's no time to let in fears
There's only time to be our best
And beat our test
As we hold the trophy to the sky
We know right now we can fly
