Relaxed – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)


it is alright
time to relax
time to look forward
not to look back
it is going to be true
if she will,
she will dance with you
and if it is how she feels
she will pull you through
it’s alright
you can do it good and proper
don’t worry about it
nothing can stop her
it didn’t really affect me
when she asked if I’d been lying
i thought about it all lately
it got to me when she started crying
saying, she could not make it work
there was not a thing could do
as much as she wanted to
but it is alright
it is time to relax
it is going to be okay
just look forward
spend a little time today
it is your choice
time to relax
problems will drift away

James Garratt – February to June 1995
