Doesn’t Time Tell – Written Sunday 13th November 1994 (Aged 19)

Doesn’t Time Tell

they used to be together –
all the time
but that was so long ago
and it did not last
he went away and he grew well
and now, she is back –
trying to recapture the past
but, doesn’t time tell
they were there tonight
drinking together, talking together
but no longer actually together
and for some,
it seems there is a curse
because for some life gets better
whilst for other, it just gets worse
she slunk back into her shell
doesn’t time tell

James Garratt – Sunday 13th November 1994
