I'm wiser now
I'm not the foolish girl you used to know
So long ago
I'm stronger now
I've learned from my mistakes which way to go
And I should know


I put myself aside to do it your way
But now I need to do it all alone


And I am not afraid to try it on my own
I don't care if I'm right or wrong
I'll live my life the way I feel
No matter what I'll gonna keep it real
You know
Time for me to do it on my own, yeah, yeah


Mmm...
Yeah, yeah


It's over now
I can't go back to living through your eyes
Too many lies
And if you don't know by now
I can't go back to being someone else
Not any more


I never had the chance to do things my way
So now it's time for me to take control


And I am not afraid to try it on my own
I don't care if I'm right or wrong
I'll live my life the way I feel
No matter what I'm gonna keep it real
You know
Time for me to do it, oh


I'll start again, go back to one
I'm runnin' things in my way
Can't stop me now, I've just begun
Don't even think about it, there ain't no way about it
I'm takin' names, the world is mine
Yes, I'm gonna take my time
It's time for me to finally to stand alone
Stand alone


I'm not afraid to try it on my own
And I don't care if I'm right or wrong
I'll live my life the way I feel
No matter what I'm gonna keep it real
You know
It's time for me to do it


See, I'm not afraid to try it on my own
And I don't care if I'm right or wrong
I'll live my life the way I feel
No matter what I'm gonna keep it real
You know
It's time for me to do it on my own


Hey...hey...
On, on my own
