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

Change, Change and Change 

it is a weird time 
change, change and change
i do not want things to stay the same 
i want to be free
tell me you care
stay with me 
in the light i stroke your hair 
it is comfort
i am scared
really scared
i do not know who is going to be next
it is so weird 
stay with me 
help me shake off fear
i am afraid that finally -
i have become responsible for the future 
i have got to stand up and see if i can see
because things are no longer the same 
change, change and change 

James Garratt – 1994
