Future Fantasy – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

Future Fantasy

you have got to believe in me
it is something you have got to do
and i have to believe in you,
it is true
flames lick my heart
and as it burns i fall apart
as i cry into the wind
shrieking across the skies
like a tortured god from the old times
of fairytales, legends and dragons
you have to believe in me
and that i will do you no harm
i know,
prehistoric cave dwellers still think
and that they still light fires,
just to keep their spirits warm
and preachers still raise a toast
every time a child is born
you have got to know your head
i have got to believe in what you said

James Garratt – February to June 1995
