Coming Back Again – Written Saturday 12th November 1994 (Aged 19)

Coming Back Again

once i was young
i cried, i lived
and i died
so much pain
do it now, learn to fly
come back again
so much pain, why?
i am an adult now
so it is mean to be
but i am still the same
i am just me
my eyes still fill up
when no one is around
and, when a girl –
does not phone
then i am always down
coming back again
to do it all, once more
all i have ever learned
is how to cry
coming back again

James Garratt – Saturday 12th November 1994
