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


soon i was leaving
easier than believing
soon i was working with you
bored out of my skull
something to do
i was doing my time
soon everything was fine
you were on top of things
but cutting out fast
you have got to be quick
before you come off worse
soon i was here
with my words intact
things were becoming clear
fantasy melted into fact
and suddenly everything was near

James Garratt – February to June 1995
