So Much Rain – Written February 1995 (Aged 19)

So Much Rain

i cannot help the way i am
depression cuts deep
starts eating away at my sleep
what is it i said to you
that made you turn me away
all my friends say you are a little bitch
i cannot believe you are that way
what is it i said to you
i have been thinking about it all day
i used to run
just because i knew you would phone
you said you were so sure
but now, you just cut me out
you do not phone anymore
it is not the feelings i feel
that really hurts me so
it is the anger i have got
and you just do not know
how can you treat people like you do
you go on about your stepdad
and how he makes you so sad
ever thought that other feel the same
perhaps you should remember that
next time you cause so much pain

James Garratt – February 1995
