On My Own

Sheryn Regis

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

[chorus]
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 keep it real you know
Time for me to do it on my own

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 anymore
I never had a chance to do things
My way
So now it’s time for me to take control

[repeat chorus]

[bridge]
Oh I start again, go back to one
I’m running things 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 taking names, the ones of mine
Yes I’m gonna take my turn
It’s time for me to finally stand
Alone, stand alone

I am 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
