Never Know What I Want – Written Approx. Late 1993 or January 1994 (Aged 18)

Never Know What I Want

i never know what i want
till i have lost it
wanted you, then saying no
wanting them, but time to go
you are trying to catch my attention
but it is me using you
like an addiction
and when i apologise,
you not realise the harm done
which makes me feel worse
because you show trust in me
and i have done is hurt you
i feel for you, so much
i see your face in my mind
and i dream of your touch
just like an electric chance
it is contact between two auras
and the dissolvement of the mask

James Garratt – 1993/1994
