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


here is a motto
if you think you are young
and if you have got a hard life
just remember this,
and make it your prayer every night
as you get older and older
life gets weirder and weirder
the loneliness creeps in
and life just gets colder and colder
just remember this,
i wrote this when i was young
just when everything had begun
now i know, this is real,
this is my motto

James Garratt – 1994
