She packed her bags and dressed
Long before the sunrise
No one knew
She told them many times
About how she would teach them
And now it`s time
Standing quietly by the door
Her face is numb with fear
She stops and then goes on
"Leave forever - it`s now or never"
Quickly walking down the street
It`s cold and grey, dawn`s breaking
She don`t mind (she don`t mind)
Why she feels so grown up now
Her life is just beginning
She don`t know (she don`t know)
She`s standing in the pouring rain
Her make-up`s running down
She wonders now she`s here
"Where will I go? Who do I know?"
Now, now she`s not quite so sure
I may be wrong but home seems so much more friendly now
And they might worry but she doesn`t want them to
'cause causing pain, that`s not the thing that she set out to do
So she`s back in bed before
Anyone can miss her
She feels good (she feels good)
Knowing the chance was there
Deciding not to take it
That`s her choice (that`s her choice)
She`s still awake, her mum comes in
"Me and dad, we`ve had a chat
And we`re sorry for the things we said
Please forgive us - you wouldn`t leave us?"
