It’s Time Someone Stayed – Written December 2010 (Aged 35)

It’s Time Someone Stayed

would you fall in love with me
whatever that means
i can fill in the nights
and sometimes one or two days
it is me or them
but eventually one of us goes away
i need to check the doors
it is time someone stayed
and i do not want you to go
and do you know,
i am not sure who you are
but the distance we search
it takes me so far

James Garratt – December 2010
