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

Playing Me Down

it is strange
that you are who you are
you played me down
you never really –
wanted me around
that is not what you used to say
i should have said something
but i am starting anew today
and you do not figure
i may have lost
but it was only a little
i had some fun
i want more than than i lost
and now i go on
your memory becomes a ghost
sleeping together
making false pledges to each other
so i go on
to live another day
and yes, things will be okay
i will be good, and all my friends
will be there,
you know that they care

James Garratt – 1994
