The moments that I think that maybe
Could this be a big mistake
Have I made the wrong decision
Is this the right road to take
I could have had a nine to five
Or finished school just like my parents wanted
But now I'm feeling so alive
I found the sun shine I no longer want it

And I feel the fire burning deep within my soul
Struggling for perfection
When I reach you let me know
And I feel I need some guidance
And my heart will let it show
In a world we're always finding
I'm gonna make it on my own

Working late to earn my keeping
Cos no one is gonna pay my way
The night is cold I should be sleeping
But I'm waiting for my morning train.
And I do this till I reach my goal
Because no one's gonna do it for me
And the night is young but time is old
And I'ma do this till I reach my glory.

And I feel the fire burning deep within my soul
Struggling for perfection
When I reach you let me know!
And I feel I need some guidance
And my heart will let it show
In a world we're always finding
I'm gonna make it on my own!

Cause I'm losing friends and gaining foes
What tomorrow's bringing no one's sure
And if I fail at least I know
I did it on
I did it on my own

    Its about how she wants to achieve a certain goal but she doesnt know if shes good enough.. And sometimes she regrets it because is hard and she wishes she would have done what her parents wanted of her.

    I feel this song isnt about whatever she does dosent satisfy the people round her, confusion not knowing which route to take...? Maybe.
