Fixing Me Up – Written Tuesday 24th June 1997 (Aged 22)

Fixing Me Up

fixing me up
before i break down once again
too many crashes
and too much pain
fixing me up
with your softly softly approach
you know,
i am shy in the corner
but i will come out if you ask me
taking me out
doing your favourite things
sitting with pretty human beings
their vanity is reflected –
in the glasses they drink out of
fixing me up
with a shot of you
on the rocks with moss and dew
i tell myself that i know
but i cannot believe it is true
fixing me up
fixing me up, with you

James Garratt – Tuesday 24th June 1997
