Asia – My Own Time lyrics

Walking through the snow kicking my heels
Seems that sunlight never felt so good before
Bet you really don't know how it feels
I don't have to answer to no one no more
And better I've never felt
Nothing to show, but nothing to lose,
I'm on my own

Cast your mind back not so long ago
I was always busy playing by the rules
Bet you thought I really didn't know
You were double dealing, now you're back at school
Something you didn't learn
Faith in myself
Gives me the strength to carry on

I'll do what I want to anyway
I'll do what I want and I'll do it in
My own time

Don't give that same old pack of lies
I'll tell you the story how it really is
You think you always had me under ties
Someone better tell you that the table's turned
Getting your fingers burned, how does it feel?
Now it's for real this is the deal

I'll do what I want to anyway
I'll do what I want and I'll do it in
My own time is on my side again
And one thing I intend
Is to do it in my own time
