I'm On My Own

I'm leaving home for the first time.

And it's kinda scary,

I don't know what I'm up against.

There's a future I can call mine,

Out in a great big world

Where I'm on my own, without friends.

 

But I can imagine new places I could be,

I can hear destiny calling out to me!

It says I'm finally ready,

And there's amazing things to see!

Somewhere, someday, out there, far away

I can reach it. I believe it.

Whatever distance, I'll run the last mile.

'Cause I'm on my own - but it's worthwhile.

 

I'm going, I've left, no turning back now.

And it's kinda scary,

The world looks bigger when you're inside.

Before all I know is turned upside down,

Let me capture this moment

Where I'm on my own, with home aside.

 

But I can imagine new places I could be,

I can hear destiny calling out to me!

It says I'm finally ready,

And there's amazing things to see!

Somewhere, someday, out there, far away

I can reach it. I believe it.

Whatever distance, I'll run the last mile.

'Cause I'm on my own - but it's worthwhile.

 Fate took me by the hand,Wisdom made me understand,Freedom took time to show,What Love knew I already know.'Cause when you're on your own,And the waves come crashing over you,You are prepared; you're not alone!There is no wall we can't break through! 

But I can imagine new places I could be,

I can hear destiny calling out to me!

It says I'm finally ready,

And there's amazing things to see!

Somewhere, someday, out there, far away

I can reach it. I believe it.

Whatever distance, I'll run the last mile.

'Cause I'm on my own - but it's worthwhile.

 Now I can imagine new stories I will tell,I can see the looks on their faces when they hear how the walls fell!I know I was fully ready,Yet there's always new things to learn,And energy to burn,And time to spend,And hands to lend,And days to fill,And I believe I will.Whatever distance, I'll run the last mile.'Cause I'm on my own - amd it's worthwhile.
