No Need For That – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

No Need For That

i saw you crying
there is no need for that
i saw you lying
changing fact
then i saw your dreams dying
there is no need for that
then i saw you out and about
with your velvet hat
all you friends were there
and i am sure they really care
but there is not need for that
the way you look and stare
there is no need for you to turn away
with your special hair
i saw you inwardly dying
there is no need for that
i saw you sighing
there is no need for that
i saw you everywhere
there is no need for that
you could have been anything
there is no need for that
no need for anything like that
i could have been everything
you said there is no need for that
no need for that
so i am here left crying
and everyone says,
there is no need for that
no need for that, no, no, no




James Garratt – February to June 1995
