Lyrics



verse 1
I tried so many times to make the decision to leave you.
But something holds me back and I can't escape if I tried to.
Can't stop relying on your being by my side.
So I just have to keep swallowing my pride.


refrain 1
I wanna make it on my own, make it on my own, make it on my own.
I wanna make it on my own, make it on my own, make it on my own.

verse 2
You gotta understand I'm a lady with a lot ambition.
But I haven't got the strength I need to make a decision.
Deep-down I want happiness or success.
I'm so scared to put love to the test.

refrain 2
I wanna make it on my own, make it on my own, make it on my own.
I wanna make it on my own, make it on my own, make it on my own.

bridge 1
I wanna escape, but you're holding me back, holding me back, holding me back.

bridge 2
If I don't make a move, I don't know how long I'll last.
I want you in my future, but I can't stop living in the past.

bridge 3
I want you to go, but I've got to stay.
I need you too much to ever break away.

conclusion
I wanna make it on my own, make it on my own, make it on my own.
I wanna make it on my own, make it on my own, make it on my own.
...Don't go ringing my telephone.
I'm gonna tell my mama to say that I'm not home.
