Story Behind the Song

A woman seeks a new life after years of abuse

Lyrics

No Return

1. She came into the station
All covered in snow
She walked up to the window
And asked for one to go

What's your destination?
The stationmaster asked
I need a one-way ticket
She said with eyes downcast

Chorus: I'm leaving now forever
He's seen the last of me
I'm leaving all the hurt behind
My God at last I'm free

Just get me out of this old town
There's nothing more to learn
Give me a ticket to anywhere
Just make it no return

2. She stared at her reflection
She had a pain in her eye
She was so close to losing it
She gave a heavy sigh

C'mon said the others
C'mon make up your mind
Nowhere in particular
Anyplace is fine

Chorus: I'm leaving now forever
He's seen the last of me
I'm leaving all the hurt behind
My God at last I'm free

Just get me out of this old town
There's nothing more to learn
Give me a ticket to anywhere
Just make it no return

3.She waited on the platform
Alone but not afraid
It was a long time coming
As she carefully weighed
The years of persecution
Of being beaten down
Never a word of kindness
Just his constant frown

Chorus: I'm leaving now forever
He's seen the last of me
I'm leaving all the hurt behind
My God at last I'm free

Just get me out of this old town
There's nothing more to learn
Give me a ticket to anywhere
Just make it no return

Coda: The seat by the window
The train sped into the night
As as her smile reflected
She knew her plan was right

No return (repeat and fade)
