This Life – Written November 2006 (Aged 31)

This Life

we had fun
i thought you loved me
okay, i was right
it was past tense
and now, fuck this life
it does not make sense
am i wrong or are you right?
this life,
i remember my previous two
the days,
when i first met you

we had fun
but the fun had to go
fuck this life,
as i am left just below
i did try perfection
but i just found disaster
i was never much good with direction
or the, ‘happy ever after’
fuck this life,
fuck it with all that is light

we had fun
then when the storm clouds found me
i got done,
i thought you loved me
shows what i know,
fuck this life
before you know it, it is time to go
i thought you loved me,
or were we just fooling in the snow?
we had fun
when finally got to orbiting the sun
fuck this life,
well it is goodbye and now it is done

James Garratt – November 2006
