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

Secrets

look, i have got to tell you
i have got to tell you so much
i wish, as a person,
i was more black and white
not all these different shades
look at the world outside –
through a window,
what do you see
nothing but grey skies
or maybe,
just a reflection of you and me
standing together
look at yourself
step outside of yourself
look out, tell me, what do you see
does it depress you
and are you glad to be free
look, i will tell you what i know
that is all i can do –
when it comes to pre evolutionary man
i just hope you understand




James Garratt – 1994
