Believing in You – Written Approx. Late 1993 or January 1994 (Aged 18)

Believing in You

i am so alone with my love
isn’t anyone out there?
i have looked, just about everywhere
but i cannot seem to find a person
who will ever care
if had you, by my side
i would make sure things were good and alright
and if you ever want to know why
just remember all the times you have cried
i am looking across the sky
for the people who have never lived
for the people who had to die
i have got myself really strung out
and i am starting to look in the strangest places
girl, if you need me
i will go to you in your dreams
take you out and show you a world
that is not what it seems
i will hold you, but never change you
mould you into something with much more confidence
because when you look around
that is what really makes sense
that is all we have to know
loving you,
it is the strangest thing i will ever have to do
i am only ever going to set you free
because i believe in you

James Garratt – 1993/1994
