Shake Me Up – Written Sunday 1st July 2001 (Aged 26)

Shake Me Up

shake me up,
rush me out,
kick my arrogance into touch
change my luck
you’re an artist
painting me a smile every day
tell me about the sun
follow those fingers
watch where they go
grab me by the hand
hold onto me with hands
shake me up,
my world is rotating,
just anticipating
shake me up

James Garratt – Sunday 1st July 2001
