i think its selfish to.
want this as much as i do
i cant stop myself from driving on
and making it through
mom and dad
understand
things will work out in the end
but now i should go
cause time is something i can not bend

(chorus)
im on my own
it feels like the first time that ive let you go
im on my own
nothings gonna stop me
i just thought you should know

21 still so young
when will life really begin
stop flailing
start caring
getting up and fighting to win
you cant be against me
when will you listen to me
and open your eyes
and see me for what i want to be

(chorus) [repeat]
im on my own
it feels like the first
that ive let you go
im on my own
nothings gonna stop you
i wanted you to know i couldnt paint it better if i tried
i wouldnt paint it better if i tried

lets go!!!!

im on my own
it feels like the first time
im on my own
nothings gonna stop me
i just thought you should know

    General Commentthis is the perfect "my-parents-dont-understand-what-i-want-to-do-with-my-life,-but-i-have-to-do-it-cuz-it-feels-so-right" song. the song respects the parents, it's not like the usual "fuck you, i'm outta here" kind of tune. "i think its selfish to, want this as much as i do" .... some families would love to stay together, and when most of the family has, and you are the one who wants to totally get away, you feel selfish. but, then again, it feels so right.. it's your life. lets go!!
