Don’t You – Written Saturday 29th October 1994 (Aged 19)

Don’t You

don’t you know who, or where i am
i am in the dark
without you holding my hand –
i never know where i am
shooting stars and driving cars
in a fantasy land
don’t you understand
don’t you like the band
they are talking to teenagers
teenagers in love
teenagers who cannot get a job
and teenagers who have had enough
teenagers so high
they are losing touch
i like you, ever-so
but not so much, that i want you stay
i am sorry i have got to go
i will tell you tuesday
and wednesday will be hard
so please stay, stay with me

James Garratt – Saturday 29th October 1994
