Nothing For Sure – Written Wednesday 24th October 1994 (Aged 19)

Nothing For Sure

jump through the door
i do not know anything anymore
nothing for sure
get out into the real world
where the streets are dangerous
and tiled with fools gold
looking into the window
the pane gives a half reflection of you
you can disappear and find yourself
it is up to you, exactly what you do
once upon a time,
everything looked easy and fine
i guess i have grown old
this is me, i am never cold
welcome to the things you never knew
they are all for you
you cannot pick and choose
but what the hell
you have nothing to lose
just be careful of that ego
the one which is so easy to bruise
just be careful, do not be a fool

James Garratt – Wednesday 24th October 1994
