The Monkees – It's My Life lyrics

(Micky Dolenz)
Micky Dolenz Music (BMI)

Lead Vocal: Micky Dolenz

It's my life and I'm takin' over now
It's my life and it's time that I learned how
No excuses. For the truth is
It's my life now

I stumble and I fall
And I think about it all
Then I make amends
But it never ends
And I've just begun to wonder why
And I listen to the songs,
And I read all the words,
And I seem to remember something that I heard
Of a fire and a cave and shadows on the wall

It's my life and I'm takin' over now
It's my life and it's time that I learned how
No excuses. For the truth is
It's my life now

I wanna believe in the miracles
But they mix me up. Then they pass the cup
And I've just begun to look the other way
And I don't want to lean on the stars or on the dreams
On the fantasies or the deities
Don't I think it's time to lean on me?

It's my life and I'm takin' over now
It's my life and it's time that I learned how
No excuses. For the truth is
It's my life now

No excuses. For the truth is
It's my life now
