Pretend Girlfriend – Written Approx. Late 1993 or January 1994 (Aged 18)

Pretend Girlfriend

you will never fool me
you are just like a ghost
i can see right through you
and i do
you speak with a voice
that no matter,
the words used,
does not mean anything
you take yourself down
when you think,
you are taking yourself up
and the feelings you give
are fake and never enough
but you will never fool me
or the people you go out with
you may fool him
but i have been there
and i have lived that impossible dream
you have got to sort yourself out
you may think you know it
but none of us,
really know what it is all about
that is the clever bit

James Garratt – 1993/1994
