What Happens – Written Thursday 9th March 1995 (Aged 20)

What Happens

what happens
when you end up depending
you are never there when people need you
with her is the time you are spending
spending all the time you have
cannot stop thinking about someone
cannot stop going through it

what happens
when you become like this
i have got to come to terms with it
and i do not want to face it
i have fallen for an impossible love
who i know can give me everything
except, maybe that special touch

what happens
tell me, what happens now
because you are always there
and i know she loves and that she cares
but it is not like that
what happens…
what happens…
what happens?
