Sweet – Written Sunday 23rd October 1994 (Aged 19)


shaking it up, putting it down
looking about,
to see if anyone is around
getting out,
lovely and sweet
i love the shoes on your feet
you dance so well,
saturday is good
morning after, well it is hell
do kiss and tell
you looked so good last night
but today you were so quiet
are you alright?
that dress,
that dangles from your shoulders
that makeup on your face
everything about you
makes people look and stare
scary monsters like a plague
we have go things to share

James Garratt – Sunday 23rd October 1994
