Nearly Over – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

Nearly Over

do not cry, it is all over
i still love you
do not cry, not now my child
it has been a long time
since i held you tight
but it is alright, it is over
you can take cover with me
you can, afterall, be free
free from the demons inside your mind
they have been eating you,
in every way

do not cry my love, i am here
i am back to save you
like a prince charming
desperate to save his darling
but this is no comic book land
this is reality
this is about you and me
living out a little bit of our past
a special part where we grew together
do not cry now my child
it is nearly over

James Garratt – February to June 1995
