Reaching Out – Written February 1995 (Aged 19)

Reaching Out

we all need someone to believe in
we all want to know someone is there
because at the end of our day
we need to believe that someone cares
it is not so okay
when no one is there
when you are losing your mind
but thankfully not your hair
but really you can be on the right track
if you reach out further enough
sometimes we all know it is tough
and you may come unstuck
if you are looking for something like love
when you feel down on your luck
you world may be dark, lacking in light
but light can come in through a crack
remember if you reach out further enough
someone is bound to reach back

James Garratt – February 1995
