Could Not Help But Flirt – Written Between Tuesday 15th February 1994 and November 1994 (Aged 18/19)

Could Not Help But Flirt 

i went home with you 
and all my happiness went away 
i have got to call you today 
i went out with friends 
they got away 
from what bothered them today 
but i did not know what to do 
kept on drinking,
to forget you
but i kept on thinking 
that i will never be true 
so give me back my innocence 
give me back my fantasy 
i am getting old 
and starting to love what i see
i saw you today,
and everyone noticed me and you 
i laughed till i hurt 
we had to do it
i could not help but flirt 


James Garratt – 1994
