Substance of Our Dreams (Originally Untitled) – Written December 2000 (Aged 25)

Substance of Our Dreams

being tired
is all i seem to do
but when i am down
i know there is still you
you believe,
it is unconditional
it does not leave
my job is a joke
but i am not laughing
and dreams burn
but we have got each other,
and we will lean
that being tired
does not have to be the end
in the scheme of things,
we are the substance of our dreams
metaphorically we could,
we could spread our wings
being tired,
so let sleep come
i know when i get down
as i tend to do,
i only have to look around
and it is not difficult to find you

James Garratt – December 2000
