Jeff Williams – It's My Turn (feat. Casey Lee Williams) lyrics

[Verse 1]
When I was young
If I just closed my eyes
Then I could go anywhere
Dream of any place
Imagination set the pace
And my heart was happy there

What a shame that you came
Round and told me
Said my dreams can't come true
"Don't be foolish
Give up your wish
Big things aren't for you"

And how you'd scold and chide me
Forever criticize me
But now I think I know the truth

[Verse 2]
You were the one
Who held me down and told me
I was heading nowhere
You said know your place
Accept your fate and show good face
And be thankful that you're there

That was so long ago
When you owned me
I believed it was true
Bend me shape me
Build me break me
Why was I your fool?
And now I'm so much stronger
I'm not yours any longer
I've got a message here for you

[Chorus 1]
Time for you to learn
It's my turn
I won't be held down any longer
I've waited all my life and finally it's here
It all begins
A chance to win
A dream that's been a lifetime
An endless vast uphill climb
The day I've waited for is drawing near

[Verse 3]
Hey wait turn and show your face
I've got a lot to say
And you're not going anywhere
You lose; the time you ruled me's through
I'm in control I own my soul
And I'll never go back there

Wasted years that I spent
Never knowing
I was kept, I was used
Never-ending
Condescending
Now I just refuse
I don't care what it costs me
I know I almost lost me
Won't spend another day confused

[Bridge]
(You rose) You rose (I fell) I fell
(Made my life hell)
Anything to crush my soul
Anything to feel control
Finally free I've come so far (I've come so far)
Finally see how sick you are (sick you are)
I spent my life degraded
But I won't leave here jaded
I'll start again and finally prove

[Chorus 2]
Time for you to learn
It's my turn
I won't be held down any longer
I've waited all my life and finally it's here
It all begins
A chance to win
A dream that's been a lifetime
An endless vast uphill climb
The day I've waited for is drawing near
