Just My Life – Written Friday 1st August 1997 (Aged 22)

Just My Life

my future,
it is just a friend away
but it is not my day
someone must have stole it away
someone who is quite close
i always miss those the most
with their real life element
she said, she would always be here
she said,
i will find someone someday
the irony was staring me in the face
she said, i am always here
and i thought right through to the end
my future is just a light away
a light in their eye that still shines

James Garratt – Friday 1st August 1997
