Amely – On My Own lyrics

Take me home
I'm so sick of everyone
There's nothing for me here but all
The ones who don't

Care at all
About where I needed to go
This ship has been sinking from
The day we chose

To leave that eastern coast
Sail away, hope for the most
Until it fell below
The tale of dreams I thought we all followed

This time it's me on my own
Finally free and I won't
Give up my dreams for no one
Or be a pawn of what they want me to

This time be sure they'll listen
To what I say, I'll mean it
With every single word
I'll make sure I am heard
So they won't have a doubt of what I want to be

And every time that I would speak
You never listened, words came out, but you fell
Asleep
And you expect for my technique
To slowly weaken till the point where
You could just defeat me

Well no no sir
I don't think so
That's just not
The way it works here
And oh oh
Do I feel for you
How could you just let it
Blow out to sea

And leave that eastern coast
Sail away, hope for the most
Until it fell below
The tale of dreams I thought we all followed

This time it's me on my own
Finally free and I won't
Give up my dreams for no one
Or be a pawn of what they want me to

This time be sure they'll listen
To what I say, I'll mean it
With every single word
I'll make sure I am heard
So they won't have a doubt of what I want to be

So take take take it all away
Just take take take it all away
The moment that you know
Know and realize it's a waste

To keep asking why
The time's passing
We'll watch the stars from above
Shine a different light

This time it's me on my own
Finally free and I won't
Give up my dreams for no one
Or be a pawn of what they want me to

This time be sure they'll listen
To what I say, I'll mean it
With every single word
I'll make sure I am heard
So they won't have a doubt of what I want to be
