So Much – Written Approx. Late 1993 or January 1994 (Aged 18)

So Much

there is a world behind my eyes
where things live,
and where things die
it is where the stalker lies
and i only know the realism
that i choose to employ
and when it comes to escapism
i find myself not so coy
and not so old
i am getting there
and i am getting bold

welcome to the real world
where your dreams are like a map
which you pack up and fold
and then store away
for a time far into time
when we find future days
and just like the real thing
where do we end
and where exactly do we begin

i will take your mind
and i will fly with it tonight
i will take a look inside
and see what dreams i can find
i will be there
with all the fantasy beings
and i know that they will care
after all there is so much going around
there must be enough to share

James Garratt – 1993/1994
