Give Me a Break – Written January 1996 (Aged 20)

Give Me a Break

give me a break
give me a chance
i am so young,
but too old for this
give me a chance to run
before you shoot me
give me a break
push and shove
give and take
i have had enough
give me a break
it is getting tough

James Garratt – January 1996
