Looking for the Sun – Written Sunday 9th May 1999 (Aged 24)

Looking for the Sun

looking for the sun
where has it gone
taken so young
i dream of its heat
of its warmth
i wait like an android
i am waiting to be reborn

looking for the sun
in a million different universes
in a million different galaxies
in amongst several hundred tragedies

looking for the sun
you know the one
i search like a soul does for a body
waiting for something and somebody
looking in the sky
looking on the earth
i need to feel the belief
i want a rebirth
not a retrial

James Garratt – Sunday 9th May 1999
