When You Are Alone – Written March 1995 (Aged 20)

When You Are Alone

when you are alone
who is it you think of
is that why you phone
when you have had enough
we may be weak on our own
but together we can be tough
i wonder about you
and all that it means
i do not know what to do
so i swim in my dreams
the ones that concern you
moving out when you are gone
i think of getting home
and as the day becomes long
i sit there and wait for the phone
when you are alone

James Garratt – March 1995
