Falling in Love Everyday – Written Tuesday 15th February 1994 and October 1994 (Aged 18/19)

Falling in Love Everyday

falling in love everyday
love is black magic
and the position i find myself in
is little short of a major battle
what the hell is love?
if it is wanting someone
then i fall in love everyday
yesterday i wanted her
now i need someone else
i cannot have that much to share
falling in love everyday
it is so easy, but it leaves me –
feeling so guilty
i can, i confess my feelings
when i know that they could be fake
what am i supposed to say
when a woman askes,
‘am i on the make’,
falling in love everyday
it is so hard when you are run by emotion
because everything,
it is total commotion
falling in love everyday

James Garratt – 1994
