We Are Back – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

We Are Back

i would not let you forget
i would not have left you to die –
in a self pitying abyss
i would have given you everything –
only the best gifts
open the door and let me in
do you think it is cold in there?
you should try been out here
pushing as hard as possible
just to get near
it has been hard over the last couple of years
but now, we are back
into rainbows of light and out of the black
how could i forget you
something i wanted
something i never got
something i never forgot
if you have been nearly dying
then i have always been hopelessly trying
i have been defensive, then, back on the attack
you have been down and out, and missed dearly
but you should know, we are back
now things have become clear
even if it means an end to all that
you had better believe it, we are back

James Garratt – February to June 1995
