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


i was mesmerised, hypnotised by your eyes
they appeared to draw me in
further and further i went
like taking a magical fairytale journey
and things soon seemed so different
i guess i learnt, mesmerised by your lies
lies that were so carefully constructed
i was so naive, i called it something special
but it feels like it means nothing these days
then it was love,
and i thought that i was old enough
guess you can be, if you are ready
and when you were not there, i cried
when you were there, i was mesmerised

James Garratt – February to June 1995
