Junior Doctor Leaving

8am he woke up alone

Stayed up all night waiting by the phone

She said she was gonna call by six o’ clock so they could hang out all night

Ten till five he was dressed and ready to go

He laid there underneath the sheets wishing he could go back to sleep

But he had to get ready to go because at twelve his plane was gonna leave

At the age of 17…

She knew he was leaving

But she didn’t care enough to

Show up or say goodbye

And now he’s leaving it’s time to fly

He was leaving

But she didn’t care enough to

Show up or say goodbye

And now he’s leaving it’s time to fly

Out of her life

His lonely flight took so long

And on that night he wrote this song
