Bend It Like Beckham the Musical - There She Goes Lyrics

There she goes
There she goes
Full of fear, full of rage
Far from here, from the cage of my heart
And it’s only the start
Off she sails
Off she sails
Sad and lost like a ship
Tempest tossed in the grip of the storm
True to type and to form
And there’s nothing, no nothing we mothers can possibly say
All our weeping and wailing won’t ever dissuade them from sailing away
There I go
There I go
Scheming schemes for a life which it seems is a life of it’s own
As she goes it alone
Look at me
Look at me
Making free with her pain
Saying see how much pain could be spared
If that pain could be shared
When there’s nothing, no nothing we mothers can offer, I know
And our children look colder and surer
The stronger and older they grow
And so
There they go
See them go
Far too fast to resist
With one last tiny twist of the knife
Taking half of your life
There she goes
There she goes
On the run, like her dad
Well that’s one I can add to my woes
And I doubt if she knows
Of the hurts that I hide as the truth starts to dawn
That a river has dried
That a story has drawn to a close
And she goes
Off she goes
Where she goes
Which is anyone’s guess
And she’ll need less and less of her mother
The further she goes
There she goes
There she blows
There she goes
Well god speed and god bless her forever wherever she goes
There she goes
There she goes

[Thanks to Alicia for lyrics]
