I need time (time) Love, joy (joy)
I need space (love) I need me (Action!)

Say hello to the girl that I am
You're gonna have to see through my perspective
I need to make mistakes just to learn who I am
And I don't want to be so damn protected

There must be another way
'Cause I believe in taking chances
But who am I to say, what a girl is to do
God, I need some answers

What am I to do with my life (You will find out don't worry)
How Am I supposed to know what's right? (You just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel
But my life has been so overprotected

I tell 'em what I like
What I want, and what I don't
But every time I do I stand corrected

Things that I've been told
I can't believe what I hear about the world, I realize
I'm overprotected

There must be another way
'Cause I believe in taking chances
But who am I to say, what a girl is to do
God I need some answers

What am I to do with my life (You will find out don't worry)
How Am I supposed to know what's right? (You just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel
But my life has been so overprotected

I need time (love)
I need space (This is it, this is it)

I don't need nobody
Tellin' me just what I wanna
What I what what what I'm gonna (I need)

Do about my destiny, I say no, no
Nobody tell me just what I wanna do, do
I'm so fed up with people telling me to be
Someone else but me

(Action!)

What am I to do with my life (You will find out don't worry)
How Am I supposed to know what's right? (You just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel
But my life has been so overprotected

I don't need nobody tellin' me just what I want to
What I what what what I'm gonna
Do about my destiny

I say no, no
Ain't nobody tell me just what I wanna do, do
I'm so fed up with people telling me to be
Someone else but me

What am I to do with my life (You will find out don't worry)
How am I supposed to know what's right? (You just got to do it your way)
I can't help the way I feel
But my life has been so overprotected
