Have You Got The Time – Written Between Tuesday 15th February 1994 and October 1994 (Aged 18/19)

Have You Got The Time 

have you got the time 
can some of it be mine 
i do not want to cry 
but it is easier,
than asking why 
back off, leave me alone,
you said you would,
but it is just the same 
you never phone 
i hate to feel alone  -
when you have gone 
yet when we are together
you come on so strong 
the other night,
it may have been a mistake 
but do not chuck me out 
do not playing with my feelings
tell me, what is it all about 
i am fed up of having to fight 
to prove myself all the time 
can't you be just kind?

James Garratt – 1994
