Special – Written Friday 28th October 1994 (Aged 19)


when i am with you
it is how i want it to be
just you and me
when i am with her,
i care
but unlike you i do not have –
anything special to share
working late at night
coming home to tired
waking to a new world
my dreams are spent
and as i look out of the window
the rainbow is bent
but i want you
what i feel is so special
it is the best gift i can give
it is real, and it is for you
me and you need to live
sail across the sea,
with a sky of blue

James Garratt – Friday 28th October 1994
