His actions range from locking her in her room for hours on end to telling teacher's she "bumped into the chair". Regal has stated that he wrote the song as a TakeThat to people who ignored the signs but did nothing of it.

Either way, the narrator of the song gradually discovers the abuse and asks the little bird of the song's title to help rescue the victim, [[spoiler: only for the little bird to abandon them at the end of the song.]]
