Speed Up Time – Written Wednesday 1st August 2001 (Aged 26)

Speed Up Time

i cannot speed up time
it hangs from the air
it hangs from my mind
it is everywhere
i sit here,
waiting for you
waiting for my hopes to come true
i am not asking for much
if only i could be with you
i cannot speed up the time
i wish i could
but it is just not me
the anticipation is tense
i am in two places at once
it makes total sense
but it is hard to get things done

James Garratt – Wednesday 1st August 2001
