Anything You Want – Most Likely Written Sometime Between September and November 1994 (Aged 19)

Anything You Want

what can i do
i am only me
and you are only you
together we swim in reality
i could tell you,
anything you want
but i would only tell you the truth
i would never make up the story
it would never be a spoof
times have changed
we have grown from children
who used to play in the playground
to adults,
who want so much around
anything you want
the beating of your heart
as you lay fast asleep
another generation want answers
another generation go out and seek
we used to be young
but now we are all grown up
things have shaped us in many ways
anything you do
i am only me
and you are only you
but only one of us can see
another day dies as the sun goes down
i wonder if it slips and cries
anything you want, anything you need




James Garratt – 1994
