The Green Light – Saturday 6th January 2001 (Aged 25)

The Green Light

i thought the light –
only shone green –
for those with a golden dream
and i thought the weather –
was only blue –
for those who really knew
i thought,
that perhaps,
it was only me –
leafing through a life –
that seems to be made from the sea
and i know,
that when the light turns green –
i can take myself away
because i truly know what it means
