The Eighth Sea, The Eighth Wonder – Written Sunday 7th July 2002 (Aged 27)

The Eighth Sea, The Eighth Wonder

something took me
and shook me up
it put wind in my sails
gave me a hold
that stops my childish wails
something took me
do not turn into the woman before
let the doves come,
and the magpies moves out
something took me
and showed me something else
something that i never knew
that i never believed existed
it showed me the eighth sea
and it showed me the eighth wonder
the beautiful eighth wonder
let’s remember that is how it should be
that is what took us
and that is what has taken me




James Garratt – Sunday 7th July 2002
