Changing Life – Written Between Tuesday 15th February 1994 and November 1994 (Aged 18/19)

Changing Life

winter goes, summer is here
do not know what to do
what is it that i fear
i will wait till tonight
i am really near, it is alright
hold me, need me
open the imaginary cage
and set your soul free
changing life, changing cycles
like the changing of the seasons
why do things happen
so often, little or no reasons
whatever goes, it comes around again
to trudge through the debris of the world
the spirit is insane,
reincarnation gives us another chance
i do not know if i want to live again
once is hard enough
when things go down,
it is almost too much
and when i look around
i cannot believe this is some god’s dream
life is a shaky mess,
something i could really scream
if it was not for the changing seasons
i would never be seen
so, give me some special reasons

James Garratt – 1994
