"I belong to me" as written by and Diane Warren....
I belong to me

It's not that I don't wanna share my life with you, baby
It's just that I'm the one I need to be true to, baby
And I won't give up me to be part of you

It's not that I don't want to have you in my life, baby
It's just you gotta know that it's got to be right, baby
Before I open up my heart to you

I don't need somebody to complete me
I complete myself
Nobody's got to belong to somebody else

I belong to me
I don't belong to you
My heart is my possession
I'll be my own reflection

I belong to me
I'm one, not half of two
And if you're gonna love me
You should know this, baby
That I belong to me

I gotta let you know before I let you in, baby
That who I am is not about who I am with, baby
That don't mean I don't wanna be here with you, I do

I don't need somebody to complete me
I want you to know
I'll give all my love but I'm not givin' all my soul

I belong to me
I don't belong to you
My heart is my possession
I'll be my own reflection

I belong to me
I'm one, not half of two
And if you're gonna love me
You should know this, baby
That I belong to me

Love don't mean changin' who you are
To be who somebody wants you to be
Nobody's got to belong to nobody

I belong to me
I don't belong to you
My heart is my possession
I'll be my own reflection

I belong to me
I don't belong to you
My heart is my possession
I'll be my own reflection

I belong to me
I'm one, not half of two
And if you're gonna love me
You should know this, baby
That I belong to me

    General CommentI hate this song, especially because "a public affair" is a great album and she (or her father, in this case) shouldn`t have chosen this song as the 2nd single. It`s so obvious she`s trying to do a new "We belong together" kind of song, maybe because she thought that would help her to boost her album sales (wich have been really bad so far). I don`t think this one will help her...

    General CommentI really disagree with kaneda. I really like this song, it's beautiful, and I really liked it after I saw the video too. Maybe the reason I like it so much is because I'm kind of going through this, but even if I wasn't, I still think it's pretty.

    General CommentI'm not too much of a Jessica Simpson fan I dont really care why she chose it as a single on her album or the reason shes even singing it. I do think this song has meaning to it that sometimes we don't take time out for ourselves and we are so busy with things and people in our lives that we forget that we need to enjoy ourselves and love ourselves before we go any further.

    General CommentHeyy i like this song... "I don't need somebody to complete me
    I complete myself
    Nobody's got to belong to somebody else"

    "Love don't mean changing who you are to be
    Who somebody wants you to be
    Nobody's got to belong to nobody "

    Be independent, i can relate to this song

    General CommentWow, so many haters....I think this song is awesome, here's why:

    It's a very enpowering song, when people fall in love and get into relationships, sometimes they forget who they really are. They make sacrifices for the other person and lose themselves(without even realising it)

    I think she realised this from a past relationship, and wants her new beau to know that she doesn't want that to happen again. Stay true to yourself. AND THE VIDEO IS AWESOME. There is nothing more powerful than a girl cuttig off her long long hair, and her facial expressions and emotions are amazing.

    General CommentI like this song. And just because its called ''I belong to me" that has nothing to do with "we belong together. Sheesh loser. Anyways I agree I really like this song. Especially because I would always listen to it when my ex and I broke up. Its about being Independent. And I agree I can relate to this song too. And here is a little tip. If you don't like the song get a freaking life and go do something better. Than wasting your time leaving comments.
