It Does Not Come Cheap – Written Tuesday 20th April 1999 (Aged 24)

It Does Not Come Cheap

fairy tale love does not come cheap
because,
fairy tale love exists in your head
and you believe,
fairy tale love is a medicine
an antidote to all insecurity

fairy tale love does not come cheap
it obscures your reality
it grabs your heart and changes its beat
but,
it does not come cheap
it does not solve all your problems
because problems still exist
and when this becomes apparent
that there are mountains to climb
you realise your fairy tale love
is a little more expensive than you first thought

reality is a creep
but an honest friend
and it knows,
fairy tale love does not come cheap
it goes much deeper
and if you ever believed otherwise
then you must be beyond naïve
fairy tale love does not come cheap




James Garratt – Tuesday 20th April 1999
