Looking Good – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

Looking Good

he is looking rich
living too near the beach
life is such a bitch
but she is a peach
and she knows what she can get
looking tanned
feeling fit
i am feeling rejected, by everything
they are watching t.v.
i am trying to join their dream
but they are not listening to me
and if you are perfect
in the eyes of society
then you have got it made
and you are so very lucky

James Garratt – February to June 1995
