Miss independent
Miss self sufficient
Miss keep your distance,
Miss unaffraid
Miss out of my way
Miss don't let a man interfere,
Miss on her own
Miss almost grown
Miss never let a man help her off her throne

So, by keepin her heart protected,
She'd never ever feel rejected
Little miss apprehensive said ooo,
She fell in love.

What is this feelin' takin' over?
Thinkin' no one could open her door
Surprise, it's time
To feel what's real
What happened to Miss Independent?
No longer need to be defensive
Goodbye, old you
When love is true

Miss got it hard
Miss play it smart
Miss if you wanna use that line you better not start, noooo
But she miscalculated
She didn't wanna end up jaded
And this miss, decided not to miss out on true love, so
By changing a misconception
She went in a new direction
And found inside, she felt a connection
She fell in love.

What is this feelin' takin' over?
Thinkin' no one could open her door (open this door)
Surprise...It's time (yeah)
To feel what's real (what's real)
What happened to Miss Independent?
No longer need to be defensive
Goodbye (goodbye), old you (old you)
When love, when love is true

When Miss Independent walked away
No time for love that came her way
She looked in the mirror and thought today
What happened to miss no longer afraid?
It took some time for her to see
How beautiful love could truly be
No more talk of "Why can't that be me?"
I'm so glad I've finally seen...

What is this feelin' takin' over?
Thinkin' no one could open her door (oh yeah)
Surprise (surprise)...It's time (yeah)
To feel (to feel) what's real
What happened to Miss Independent?
No longer need to be defensive
Goodbye (goodbye), old you (you)
When love, when love is true...
