Far From You – Written Thursday 2nd December 1999 (Aged 24)

Far From You

you say that this is the beginning
i say,
it is the beginning of the end
dressed up as your best friend
one door you say,
one door closing,
is another one opening
i feel so alone without you
with you i might be coping
i do not sleep at night
just lie here and stare
and when i do i just stay awake
but you are not there
beside me, holding me
i wake up looking for you
but you are not there
beside me holding me
i wake up looking for you
but i know you are gone
just as i am from your life
i wake up in the dark
and i look for your light
this is hard.
this has torn me apart
well i will repair myself
but i will always have damage
i wish i could have,
maybe made your dreams come true
i said i would do anything i could
if only i could have done that for you
made your dreams come true




James Garratt – Thursday 2nd December 1999
