Tell Me – Written Approx. Late 1993 or January 1994 (Aged 18)

Tell Me

tell me, help me now
without you i am nothing
with you i am something
and if we have got it
then that can be anything
you can only jump so far –
before you fall
and there is only –
certain places that you can reach
even if you are very tall
tell me, show me
so that i know what to do
get me out of this hole –
down which i fell
i have got to know
so help me, please, do tell
i am going for it
really thinking, of all the minds
that we are linking

James Garratt – 1993/1994
