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

Somewhere High

the more that i know
the more i want
the more you talk
the more my imagination –
wants to walk
with you, somewhere high
the more you say,
do not get close
the more that i do,
if you know, then that’s okay
but i was so down today
until you phoned
up till now i have only ever felt
so lost, so close,
but that’s how everybody feels –
at some point, isn’t it
when you were not there
tuesday night,
i got so upset, really uptight
i missed you so much
so much more than i expected
are my emotions and feelings for you –
being tested, if they are –
then on tuesday night i was wasted
time between us is rare
i so wish you had been there
i want to talk some more
i want you to stop waiting though
and come through my door
even if it is only occasionally
i want you to see, i want you

James Garratt – 1994
