If I Knew – Written Approx. Late 1993 or January 1994 (Aged 18)

If I Knew

if i knew the answer
i would tell you
ships sail in the distance
our paths cross in the night
but no one can make sense
of this mess i am in
it is a surreal world
i am living in a dream
shadows claw at my window
i am guided by the light
and the memories that grow
on a desert island i sit
ships sail past in the distance
shipwreck stuff
and a life worth living
has got to be enough
if i knew the answer
then i would talk to you

James Garratt – 1993/1994
