What Can I Do? – Most Likely Written Sometime Between September and November 1994 (Aged 19)

What Can I do?

what can i do?
i need you 
the things you say 
the things you do 
if i could have seen you today 
i would have not,
shot right through 
i suppose -
you think it is okay 
when i have not got a clue?
i was shaking,
i was closed in 
but i was waiting -
for that special dream 
never hesitating,
desperate in the the extreme 
what can i do?

James Garratt – 1994
