What Have We Got? – Written Sunday 28th January 1996 (Aged 20)

What Have We Got?

what have we got, looking for love
but not getting it back
what chance do we stand
if we are both so confused
and neither of us can understand
i hurt and i feel shallow
i like you so much
but somehow, it always feels hollow
and never enough
it is the impossible dream –
that i am always following
love at first sight
seeing your emotions alight
a part that grips your heart tight
what have we got, i fear, not a lot

James Garratt – Sunday 28th January 1996
