They Always Say No – Written Approx. Late 1993 or January 1994 (Aged 18)

They Always Say No

they always say no
give them your number
and no one rings you up
you fall,
like a kid with a bad crush
they always say no
they wear different clothes
i am a fool for how they work
no man actually knows
they ask you to be around
you have got to be flattered
so you always go with the flow
then you get hurt
they always say no
all i want is to fall for someone
who has fallen for me
they always say no
am i destined for insanity
only they know
i am just thinking
about what i can do
we could be the problem
i guess it is a bit of a joke
but, they always say no
and my, don’t we sulk

James Garratt – 1993/1994
