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


it has gotten really strange
life is a strange thing
it is a runaway train
i was born before
will i live again
in another time and place
where they build my body
and mould my face
where i am near the stars
where i can pack my case
and vacate to mars
let’s move with the times
but time can go so fast
it is very hard to keep up
sometimes you get overtaken
by the past

James Garratt – Sunday 30th October 1994
