Making the Night – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

Making the Night

i am trying to make my night
but it is not working –
and not a thing is going right
this weird
and this is not right
i have called everyone i know
and some i just knew
what am i going to do
i have got the best opportunity
but it looks like tonight
it is going to be lonely
i am trying to make the night –
one to remember
but everyone is saying no
they are as cold as december
there are too many –
days like this
i do not want to offend her
and i know she is not interested
and although she does not care
and there are no feelings –
to be investigated
i am trying to make tonight good
i wish there was someone out there
that would, really would –
just be here




James Garratt – February to June 1995
