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

Getting Away

getting away
but it is okay
i am not leaving today
i will be gone tomorrow
cannot take a life of sorrow
hold me,
tell me that it is going to be alright
be with me, tonight
i used to be young
and just a little strange
now i am old
and yet, still the same
getting away
to escape another fatality
and i am getting away –
as far as i can
out of here to a wistful land

James Garratt – 1994
