Song by Sting<br /><br>

Well it's five in the morning and the light's already broken <br>

And the rainy streets are empty for nobody else has woken <br>

Yet you turn towards the window as he sleeps beneath the covers<br>

And you wonder what he's dreaming in his slumbers<br>

<br>

There's a clock upon the table and it's burning up the hour<br>

And you feel your life is shrinking like the petals of a flower<br>

As you creep towards the closet you're so careful not to wake him<br>

And you choose the cotton dress you bought last summer<br>

<br>

There's a time of indecision between the bedroom and the door<br>

But the part of you that knows that you can't take it any more<br>

There's the promise of the future in the creaking of the floor <br>

And you're torn if you should leave him with a number<br>

<br>

And in your imagination you're a thousand miles away<br>

Because too many of his promises got broken on the way<br>

So you write it in a letter all the things you couldn't say <br>

And you tell him that you're never coming home<br>

<br>

She starts running for the railway station praying that her calculation's right<br>

And there's a train just waiting there to get her to the city before night<br>

A place to sleep a place to stay will get her through another day <br>

She'll take a job she'll find a friend she'll make a life that's better<br>

<br>

The passengers ignore her just a girl with an umbrella <br>

And there's nothing they can do for her, there's nothing they can tell her<br>

There's nothing they could ever say would change the way she feels today<br>

She'd live the life she'd always dreamed if he had only let her<br>

<br>

Now in her imagination she's a million miles away<br>

When too many of his promises got broken on the way<br>

So she wrote it in a letter all the things she couldn't say<br>

And she told him she was never coming home<br>

She told him she was never coming home<br>

<br>

I wake up in an empty bed a road drill hammers in my head <br>

I call her name there's no reply it's not like her to let me lie<br>

It's time for work it's time to go but something's different I don't know<br>

I need a cup of coffee I'll feel better<br>

<br>

I stumble to the bathroom door, her make up bag is on the floor<br>

It really is a mess this place it takes some time to shave my face<br>

I'm not really thinking straight she never lets me sleep this late<br>

I'm almost done and then I see the letter<br>

<br>

In his imagination she's a universe away<br>

Too many of his promises got broken on the way<br>

So she wrote it in a letter all things she couldn't say<br>

And she told him she was never coming home,<br>

She told him she was never coming home,<br>

She told him she was never coming home<br>

<br>

I'm gonna live my life<br>

And she told him she was never coming home<br>

I'm gonna live my life in my own way<br>

<br>
