You Don't Own Me

lyrics

I couldn't stop you if I wanted to,
You're so stubborn and you know it's true.
'Cause you made up your mind, you got it figured out.

The only thing that you asked of me, was something I couldn't give you.
Forever isn't in my repertoire, there isn't any one and only.

When you say "always" it don't mean a thing.
Eeee oo oo
Despite all the pain and joy that it bring.
And I'm realizin' it the hard way, but you won't own me.

You roll your eyes and you flip your hair,
And when we're talkin' you're not even there.
When you make up your mind, there's no comin' around.

I know you've been tellin' yourself that you,
Don't need nobody else to make it through,
'Cause you know, you're the star, high above the rest.

And in the dark your fire's shining bright,
They're all spinnin' around you.
When you're the centre of the universe, it's easy to forget you're lonely.

When you say "always" it don't mean a thing
Eee ooo
Despite all the pain and joy that it bring.
And I'm realizin' it the hard way, but you won't own me.

Realizin' it the hard way, realizin' it the hard way,
and you don't own me.

You couldn't stop us if you wanted to,
You couldn't stop us if you wanted to.
You couldn't stop us if you wanted to,
You couldn't stop of you wanted to.
