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

Counting Time

counting time
looking fine
biding my time
getting scared
do not know what to wear
there are –
too many things to confuse
there are words in my brain
but i do not –
know what ones to use
i feel weak,
i feel lame
counting time
counting with you
mountains to climb
nothing to do
it is fine,
it is it up to you

James Garratt – February to June 1995
