Doom, gloom and misery
That's what you gave to me
Cold, tight, late and mean
Beyond my wildest dreams

Now that it's over
And the sun came out to shine
Don't look for me
'Cause I set myself free
In my own time

New days have come along
And now I'm at where I belong
Blue sky shines above
And I got someone to love

Now I think about it
Lifts the clouds from my mind
Goin' out on the sea
Getting further from me
In my own time
My own time

{[Incomprehensible]}

Bye, bye, bye, bye
Is that a tear in your eye?
Too late to cry
You and your precious disguise

Sometimes I wonder if I ever saw the sign
But it's too late to care
'Cause I've done that been there
In my own time

So don't look for me
'Cause I set myself free
In my own time
In my own time
