Time to Go – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

Time to Go

it is going to be a long time
before we get to a state of utopia
before we turn, and start to realise…
look inside my eyes
what do you see?
someone else, or is it the real me
here are the keys, set me free
from intolerance and shifting sands
i could have travelled far
over the old lands
across the forever sea
where people of the past
wait for the likes of you and me
it is going to be a long time
before we get to this place
so let’s not waste time whilst we are here
let’s just enjoy the show
before it is time to leave
before it is time for us to go




James Garratt – February to June 1995
