Everything To Lose – Written Saturday 5th November 1994 (Aged 19)

Everything To Lose

no room to move
clumsy in my actions
mistakes being made
people getting hurt
everything is broken
nothing seems to work
and my love –
has just become a token
for all my innocence
and as i become clumsy
i lose all sense
cannot seem to help
things going wrong
friends feeling distance
finding it hard to get along
no room for errors
they have got to be joking
the people who made this world
no room to move
everything to lose

James Garratt – Saturday 5th November 1994
