VERSE 1-
I wish I could unzip my skin
Take it off, just to talk a walk
But I can't do it.
I don't think I'll make it on my own.
That's when I take out my pen
and I wage it all, turn the page and fall
It just comes natural.
I'm gonna make it 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.
I know she thinks that I don't try
But I realize that I can do better.
(write, write on. write, write on)x2
Makin' a mess, as I progress
No time to cry about it, do better.
(write, write on. write, write on)
VERSE 2-
I wrote the greatest lines at the strangest times
Now it's payin off, but I still feel lost
'Cause I can't do it.
I don't think I'll make it on my own.
Somewhere between now and pacifiers
I changed my name to free
Plush equals safe to me, so I'm livin dangerously
I'm gonna make it on my own.
-CHORUS-
-GUITAR-
write on, write it on your own time x10
write it on your own time.
