Schedule says last train leaves the station at nine
If I hurry I might make it on time
So many mistakes and regrets flood through my mind
A new place and friends I surely will find
No one here knows I'm leaving this place today
I doubt if they would care very much anyway
Self Pity aside, perhaps I should think once more
Be strong and face what there is in store...
She watched the last train leave promptly at nine.
