Today – Written Thursday 26th October 1995 (Aged 20)


once upon a time you were mine
two people caught in the rain
running down the window pane
i wonder what happened?
i wonder why is it not the same
i can only sit here in my mind
and think i am to blame
it used to be so easy
everything was there in front of me
i did not really have to look
it was so easy to see
but now it is gone
why is this happening to every one of us
i want to run away to a sun
where i can become a flash of light
a blink in time
the electric currents that circuit my mind
why does it all crumble and fall away?
what happens to yesterday?
is it a graveyard in our memories
yesterday can look so great
even if it was all pain
especially if today is feeling the strain
once upon a time i used to think of us
you and i, so many things to be
nowadays it only feels like me
