[Spoken:]
I need time (time)
Love (love)
Joy (joy)
I need space
I need me
(Action! )

Say hello to the girl that I am!
You're gonna have to see through my perspective
I need to make mistakes just to learn who I am
And I don't wanna be so damn protected
There must be another way
'Cause I believe in taking chances
But who am I to say
What a girl is to do
God, I need some answers

What am I to do with my life?
(You will find it out don't worry)
How am I supposed to know what's right?
(You just gotta do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel
But my life has been so overprotected

I tell 'em what I like
What I want
And what I don't
But every time I do I stand corrected
Things that I've been told
I can't believe what I hear about the world, I realize
I'm Overprotected

There must be another way
Cause I believe in taking chances
But who am I to say
What a girl is to do
God, I need some answers

What am I to do with my life?
(You will find it out don't worry)
How am I supposed to know what's right?
(You just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way (help the way I feel) I feel
But my life has been so overprotected

I need... time (love)
I need... space
(This is it, this is it)

I don't need nobody tellin' me just what I wanna
What I what what what I'm gonna (I need)
Do about my destiny
I Say No, No
Nobody's tellin' me just what what what I wanna do, do
I'm so fed up with people tellin' me to be
Someone else but me

(Action! )

What am I to do with my life?
(You will find it out don't worry)
How am I supposed to know what's right?
(You just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel (feel)
But my life has been so overprotected

I don't need nobody tellin' me just what I wanna
What I what what what I'm gonna
Do about my destiny
I Say No, No
Nobody's tellin' me just what I wanna do, do
I'm so fed up with people tellin' me to be
Someone else but me

What am I to do with my life?
(You will find it out don't worry)
How am I supposed to know what's right?
(You just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way (help the way I feel) I feel
But my life has been so over (over) protected.
