Lovely Love – Most Likely Written Sometime Between September and November 1994 (Aged 19)

Lovely Love

lovely love
let me take you away
it is dark tonight
and i do not think we should stay
your nightmares,
have been gathering speed
it is time lovely love
time to flee,
lovely love
you know things are strange
they are like shadows
so weird
but lovely love
i do not know what it is i fear
i really need you
but i am scared to be near
lovely love, the monsters out
the garbage of our brains
roaming the streets
jumping trains
lovely love
stick with me,
things do not have to be the same
let’s swim together
the water stretches far ahead
perhaps forever
lovely love
its now or never
life may never enough
and it may really hurt
but it does not have to be tough
lovely love, lovely love with me

James Garratt – 1994
