Trying to Get Some Light – Written Monday 29th January 1996 (Aged 21)

Trying to Get Some Light

did you see the sunshine?
because i caught a glimpse of me
and a reflection of your mind
like a ship lost at sea
did you need the energy
just to get out of all those places
did you see the sunshine
or just funny faces?
a hall of mirrors
may well bear your name
but when with your glass slippers
you are just a cinderella dying for fame
did you see the sunshine
or just minnie mouse
wondering if you were a cartoon
with a felt pen house
and an outlined living room
did you wonder where all your friends went
whilst you were changing there
just so you could regally different
the type who lives nowhere
but in the lamest minds
did you seek a revelation
or just want the sun to shine?




James Garratt – Monday 29th January 1996
