(verse 1)
I wish I could unzip my skin and take it off
just to take a walk but I can’t do it
I don’t think I’ll make it on my own (on my own)
as when I take out my pen
and I wage it all, turn the page and fall
it just comes natural
im gonna make it on my own (on my own)

(chorus)
I just need time to walk it off
but I can’t do it
I’ll write it on my own time
hey look I made it on my own (on my own)
I know she thinks that I don’t try
but I realize that I can do better
write, write on (4x)
makin’ a mess as I progress
no time to cry about it, do better
write, write on (2x)

(verse 2)
I wrote the greatest lines at the strangest times
now its payin’ off, but I still feel lost
cuz I can’t do it
I don’t think I’ll make it on my own (on my own)
so in between now it pacifies
I change my name to free, but she feels safe to me
so I’m livin’ dangerously
I’m gonna make it on my own (on my own)

(chorus)
I just need time to walk it off
but I can’t do it
I’ll write it on my own time
hey look I made it on my own (on my own)
I know she thinks...
But I realize that I can do better
write, write on (4x)
makin’ a mess as I progress
no time to cry about it, do better
write, write on (4x)

(outtro)
write on, write it on your own time (write, write on)
write on, write it on your own time (write, write on)...
