Dead Inside – Written Between Tuesday 15th February 1994 and October 1994 (Aged 18/19)

Dead Inside

she is all broken
i am too
i am you,
too many times
i am just a pain
say my name
say it again
i am hurting
stop your flirting
before i die inside
before i die and go away
i might be together tomorrow
but i am alone today
and i am hurting
and you must know why
you said my name
can i ever really know if i cry
for you or for what i never had
something has died, dead inside

James Garratt – 1994
