Under Pressure – Written Friday 28th October 1994 (Aged 19)

Under Pressure 

what am i meant to do 
i am going to hurt 
and make her cry 
stick by my side
hold me -
till the sky turns black 
everything has started now
there is not turning back 
i am going to cry 
and try to comfort her 
i have taken her heart 
i am the one who made it break
i feel such a fake 
i never meant to be so weak  
i have got half way there
but under pressure, 
i cannot take the heat
but... i do care 

James Garratt - Friday 28th October 1994
