lyrics

Julie says she’s done down at the factory
Took the long way home, by the old school.
How good did it feel to emphasise ownership
of her own time?

This is no paradise, mud bricks and field mice,
Checking your change to find florins and dimes.

Now she’s free to fly just like the factory hens
You can see the world from your own cage
A girl can feel trapped for as long as it takes her to admit.

But this is no holiday, this time is here to stay
Fighting within the home, it dares her away

“Give me a dream” she said
“I can’t stay here til I’m dead.
“I listen to my head and my heart.
“Give me a different view, cos I’m just not happy with you”

And into the distant blue, she flew.
