Honest – Written Sunday 30th October 1994 (Aged 19)


i have got to be honest
with myself
i can lie –
to everybody else
till my face turns blue
but with myself
i have got to be true
i cannot keep on faking –
the way i feel
i cannot let you –
keep on believing
in the dream
which is not there
it is not like that
i do not care
but never enough to –
ever feel special
when i think of you
i have used you, i am sorry
but we all make mistakes
it seems, that is how we learn

James Garratt – Sunday 30th October 1994
