I need time (time) (love)
Joy (joy)
I need space (love)
I need me

(action)

Say hello to the girl that I am
Youre gonna have to see through my perspective
I need to make mistakes just to learn who I am
And I don't wanna be so damn protected

There must be another way
Cause I believe in taking chances
But who am I to say
What a girl is to do
God I need some answers

What am I to do with my life (youll find it out, don't worry)
How am I supposed to know what's right (you just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel
But my life has been so overprotected

I tell em what I like
What I want
And what I don't
But every time I do I stand corrected
Things that Ive been told
I can't believe what I hear about the world
I realized Im overprotected

There must be another way
Cause I believe in taking chances
But who am I to say
What a girl is to do
God I need some answers

What am I to do with my life (youll find it out, don't worry)
How am I supposed to know what's right (you just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel (help the way I feel)
But my life has been so overprotected

I need time (love)
I need space (this is it)

I don't need nobody telling me just what I wanna
What I want want
What Im gonna (I need) do about my destiny
(I say just) nobodys telling me just what I wanna (do)
Im so fed up with people telling me to be
Someone else but me

(action)

What am I to do with my life (youll find it out, don't worry)
How am I supposed to know what's right (you just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel
But my life has been so overprotected

I don't need nobody telling me just what I wanna
What I want want
What Im gonna (I need) do about my destiny
(I say just) nobodys telling me just what I wanna (do)
Im so fed up with people telling me to be
Someone else but me

What am I to do with my life (youll find it out, don't worry)how am I supposed
To know what's right (you just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel
But my life has been so overprotected
