The Strangest of Steps – Written Sunday 7th July 2002 (Aged 27)

The Strangest of Steps

i guess we want to be understood
but no one really does
they never would
but we do rush to judge
we love to think
we have got everything
but i know we forgot the kitchen sink
i guess they will never really know me
though some of my chains still rattle
we would all like to be free
i guess that is you and that is me
i travelled the world
in the strangest of steps
i took in the cold
and the pain in my breast
so we will always be strangers to each other
i guess
