Pull Away, Then Pull Back – Written January 1996 (Aged 21)

Pull Away, Then Pull Back

pull away, then pull back
the pressure –
it is a heart attack
there are lost loves –
and treasures of a princess

pull away, then pull back
you cannot get what you need
so you lie on the floor
and pretend to bleed
closing the curtains on my windows

who needs a soul?
pull away, then pull back
because it is the only way you know
it appears to the only way
you can get what you want




James Garratt – January 1996
