Somebody Make a Difference – Written Sunday 16th April 2000 (Aged 25)

Somebody Make a Difference

somebody make a difference
to a life lived so strange
so what happened to suburbia
so what happened to my wage
now i am twenty five?
some people have what they want
but they never realise they are alive
they work hard,
and look after a partner
who dreams of being somebody else
but is too scared to leave
because they are never sure
if they want to be themselves
somebody make a difference
i have chapters of my life
and they waiting to be filled up
i will prepare the book
you have the handwriting touch
but what happened to you?
you forgot to turn on the light
i will make it strange to the touch
so turn it on for my life
