WHY did I keep on running Always running away What was I trying to find Why did I pick my old battered suitcase And run out of another door Leaving only anger behind Locked doors and pain Walking through the cold black night And pouring rain I run away - far away Just me and my old battered suitcase Full of old memories Black and white photos from 1968 Taken in a house in Essex That I used to hate Snapshots of my parents Pretending to have fun But I'm looking down the barrel of a gun Old decayed faces trying to smile Sad memories locked away in a file Now I came to another door But too scared to open it Knowing I will leave it very soon It always happens The anger, hurt and pain Then me and my old battered suitcase Take the last train into the night With a ticket to "anywhere."
