Remote – Written February 1995 (Aged 19)


feeling remote
finding it hard to keep afloat
feeling cut off
from all those familiar things
cannot get enough
of someone else’s dreams
i am feeling cut off
i am found in the middle of a vast sea
fed of being in love or so i think,
still just about like being me
running around never know where i am going
i see some people
i do not know if they are the people i am seeing
who i am meant to be with
watching everything fall through
almost stopped believing
needing someone like you
wish things would start clearing
i do not know what do
feeling remote, have not got a clue

James Garratt – February 1995
