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

Phone Numbers and Names

phone numbers and names
in my memory
lost loves,
and lost causes
that i can see
yes, you are good
you weird
and most of all
someone i want near
listening to the television
trying to pass time
it is a melancholy thought
in my mind
living up the night
trying to sleep till dawn
not wanting you out of sight
what can i do
i want to make real progress
real progress with you

James Garratt – 1994
