What Have I Done To Hurt You? – Written March 1993 (Aged 18)

What Have I Done To Hurt You?

what have i done to hurt you
i will keep on going
till i find the answer,
the one,
that tells me all about you
you’re not showing
and i need to know what to do
a weird thing happened today
i made someone blue
and i did not even stop –
to pass the time of day
what have i done to hurt you
what did i say,
all i did was feed my mind with dreams
and everything seemed to be okay
pretty trees and such nice things
who knows where destiny lies
or what the future will bring

James Garratt – March 1993
