Positive – Written Monday 6th March 1995 (Aged 20)


i can really move somewhere else
if you knew how much i cared
makes me scared
sun streaks across the daytime sky
like a shooting star in the blackest night
she always moves you
from the deepest emotions you have ever felt
she makes you feel good
and as the nightmares melt
you hold her hand and walk away –
from the wildest wind
i am going to be the most special friend
you could ever want
lovely life rolls by on the downs
ii am doing my act as a joker
would you supple the clowns?
looking around i think they are already near
i am too used to losing my mind
and having my heart paralysed by fear
if only you could come here
i would think about it all going so well
a little blue with a dash of black
life just goes on
but remember that a new dawn
arrives with every rise of the sun
