Be A Little Strange (Originally Untitled) – Most Likely Written December 1993 (Aged 18)

Be A Little Strange

get away from there
don’t you care
don’t run your hands,
through your hair
don’t stare
be a little careful
you soul has been laid bare
and i know i have been bad
and i am upset,
that you are so sad
but i am only a teen
one who is seeing the unseen
and running from the dream
be a little strange
again and again
the pain comes crashing down
then it is all around
and that noise is a sound

James Garratt – December 1993
