Touch My Mind – Written Monday 26th July 1999 (Aged 24)

Touch My Mind

touch my mind
touch it till it shivers
touch my mind
like you always do
touch it with your fingers
when the day lingers
and dreams enter my mind
you touch my mind
the paradise in life is hard to find
touch my mind
friends in high places
looking to be kind
pretty made up faces
lost to those of us so blind
but you touch my mind
you touch it till it hurts
but that is no bad thing
touched by a human being
touch my mind

James Garratt – Monday 26th July 1999
