I Tell You – Written Friday 2nd December 1994 (Aged 19)

I Tell You

i tell you
the world cannot be real
i tell you that
and so much more
that is the way that i feel
exploiting the poor
life is a bitch, for the rich

i tell you
everything i know
you tell me
you have got to go
what are you going to show
is it anything i know?
is it true, is it how you feel

James Garratt – Friday 2nd December 1994
