Across the Wildest Seas – Written Approx. Late 1993 or January 1994 (Aged 18)

Across the Wildest Seas

you can walk across –
heaven’s most wildest seas
to the land –
we never knew existed
you can take my mind
open it up,
and get through my imagination
take a peek inside
see what you can find
i could see you, far away
sitting there, under the sun
soul so old
body so young
the day became so cold
as we lost the sun
but it is alright now
loneliness is in another land
in a house on its own
with a person holding their hand
that person must be so alone
but they will find something
just a take a walk tonight
get out and see yourself
across the wildest seas
that lie beyond the clouds
i know your mind is weird
it is the things you say
the way that you fear
yet you always live for today

James Garratt – 1993/1994
