So Much to Gain – Written October 2001 (Aged 26)

So Much to Gain

what are you going to change
one more revolution
the big bang theory
life has no mark that is a question
but it is certainly a query
i skipped at school
i broke so many things
my own made up rules
what are we going to do
one more thing
at least i have you
the galaxy of stars
we will get there one day
we just need to make a start
you always know what to say
life is strange, it should –
be followed by a question mark
but instead it is full of joy and pain
at least we are together
and we have so much to gain

James Garratt – October 2001
