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

Her Number

it is her number
it is mine
and it is all so fine
her number,
seems to mean so much
stealing time
just to get it together
kicking dustbins
in stormy weather
frustration can get you down
it is her number that you need
her affection,
on which you feed
just keep it all to yourself
her number is for you
and nobody else
till three in the morning
see the dawn sky
it is a warning
for the things to come
you have got her number
call her soon
call her at noon
then you will know for sure
you will be contented in the brain
she will probably see you again
going out together

James Garratt – 1994
