I know you expected me
To act just like a schoolgirl
Followed your rules
Just like a fool
Wrapped up in your world
What's good for you
Don't mean that's so good for me
What can I do, but hang around
And lose myself just like I used to
Go round and round just like a loose screw
Well I ain't gonna walk
With my heart in my hand
And take things lying down like before
Won't take your crap the way I used to
Ain't gonna be the way it used to,
Alright for you, ain't alright for me
Maybe I was weak though the average
Person probably thinks I'm stronger
When I need someone else
I shut out myself,
Scared to say the wrong words
What's right for you
Don't think that's alright for me
You spread the glue, so I can't move
And stick to you just like I used to
Go round and round just like a loose screw...
Oh I ain't gonna walk
With my heart in my hand...
...Ain't gonna do it like I used to
Go round and round just like a loose screw
Alright for you ain't alright for me, no
Everytime you pust me down
Everytime you screw me around
Everytime you do that to me
I'm my own possession
I'm my own possession...
