Now or Tomorrow (Originally Untitled) – Written Wednesday 4th October 2000 (Aged 25)

Now or Tomorrow

enlighten me
step into my room
and turn the lights on
i will give you the map of my life
and you can be in charge of directions
i will wait outside in the cold
you can fetch me a warm coat
enlighten me
now or tomorrow
you can always find me
now or tomorrow
waiting at the train station
waiting for the train to pull in
i will will on it, just so we can begin
enlighten me
spark up conversation
or just be a spark
search for satisfaction
turn on lights because it is dark –
walking through the fields

James Garratt – 4th October 2000
