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

Come Back

come back to reality
come back to me
get away from what you fear
i am lost and alone
i need you near
comes from the nightmare
the world you have created
i am tired and i care
but i am not sedated
i just really want you there
come back to me
let’s board life’s boat
and sail across the sea
if i lower the drawbridge –
over the moat
there is a castle waiting –
for you and me
hold the tear from your face
no need to swallow your pride
and choke on the taste
for i am here,
come back to reality
and i will you what i fear

James Garratt – 1994
