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 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 lines
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

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 start, again go back to one
I'm running things in my way
Can't stop me now, I've just begun
Don't even think about it

There ain't no way around it
I'm taking names, the world is 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
