That is a Cocktail – Written Tuesday 15th February 1994 and October 1994 (Aged 18/19)

That is a Cocktail

if i am, then i can, to true, to true
i know them
but i never know you
i want to be alone with you
i would place you in the centre of my room
i would walk around you,
sitting perfectly still
i want to know about you
because all i know is how i feel
and that is a cocktail that can be so unreal
i am, i know i am, i do care
i do not know where i am going
but i am getting there
i should have known better

James Garratt – 1994
