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

Caught Myself

caught myself –
coming out of the sky
we are all getting older now
we are all going to cry
another day at large
another time in hell
give me a smile
aren’t we doing well
speak to us like equals
yes, please tell
letting down your hair
doing things you shouldn’t
falling for their charms
i knew you wouldn’t
it has been a hard week
it is cruel being young
i can get nervous –
and shuffle my feet
but when it is all alone
watch me, i still speak
never going to stop my fun

James Garratt – 1994
