It's My Turn Lyrics

by Diana Ross

I can't cover up my feelings in the name of love
Or play it safe for a while that was easy
And if living for myself is what I'm guilty of
Go on and sentence me, I'll still be free

It's my turn to see what I can see
I hope you'll understand this time's just for me
'Cause it's my turn with no apologies
I've given up the truth to those I've tried to please

But now it's my turn
If I don't have all the answers
At least I know I'll take my share of chances
Ain't no use in holdin' on when nothin' stays the same

So I'll let it rain 'cause the rain ain't gonna hurt me
And I'll let you go 'though I know that won't be easy
It's my turn with no more room for lies
For years I've seen my life through someone else's eyes

And now it's my turn
To try and find my way
And if I should get lost
At least I'll own today

It's my turn
Yes, it's my turn

And there ain't no use in holdin' on
When nothin' stays the same
So I'll let it rain 'cause the rain ain't gonna hurt me
And I'll let you go 'though I know that won't be easy

It's my turn to see what I can see
I hope you'll understand this time's just for me
'Cause it's my turn to turn and say goodbye
I sure would like to know that you're still on my side

'Cause it's my turn
It's my turn

It's my turn to start from number one
Trying to undo some damage that's been done
But now it's my turn to reach and touch the sky
No one's gonna say at least I didn't try

It's my turn
Yes, it's my turn
It's my turn
It's my turn
It's my turn
