Song written by: Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford
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
Cos 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?"
