Backbone of My Years – Written July 2002 (Aged 27)

Backbone of My Years

these are the days
i walk the tracks of my tears
i feel the sun
the backbone of my years
these are the rays
that keep us alive
i walk the tracks of my tears
i keep on walking
till the hills are near
and the tops come close
these are the days
that we value the most
i walk the tracks of my tears
romance all the ghosts
that have populated my years
i feel the sun
the backbone of my years
i walk the tracks of my tears
time has no real meaning
if you count the years
these are the days
i walk the tracks of my tears




James Garratt – July 2002
