Carried you across the nation
My modesty wouldn’t cave in
Until now I’d hold my breath
But no need when you broke the pact
I’d open doors, you’d close them
Behind when I wasn’t looking
I’d clean up your mess
Now I get to sweep you under the rug

[Chorus:]
So I’ll erase your name
Start again
Make it clear
So there’s no more question
Words are empty
Now they know
Erase your name
And do it again
On my own, my own, my own
Do it again on my own, my own

I’d have ideas, you’d claim them
Behind if I wasn’t looking
You’re colder than winter
But now I’m smiling under the sun

[Chorus]

Without you in my way
Never thought I’d see the day I’d be on my own, my own
Do it again on my own, my own

A picture of me standing next to you
Woke to find I’m a cheap headline
After years I spent breaking stereotypes
Now my skin’s stained
I’ll shed and do it again

Without you in my way
Never thought I’d see the day
Without you in my way
Do it again on my own, my own

[Chorus]
