They Don’t Know Me (Originally Untitled and Unfinished) – Written December 2000 (Aged 25)

They Don't Know Me

they don't know me
let them find me 
let them be like children 
let me be like a child
i washed my clothes 
i changed my suit 
but they did not think
i was that cute
i am no angel 
but stroke my features
and trace my face 
they don't know me 

James Garratt – December 2000
