Lyrics

For too long, I’ve been stuck in your binds
I’ve waited so long; I think it is about time
Oh, for so long I was waiting for some kind of change
Oh, you can try
But you’ll never own me

For too long, I waited for you to come through
But honey, there’s some things you just can’t make do
Oh, did you think I was such a fool to be confined by your useless rules
Oh, you can try
But you’ll never own me

Too many have tried to put a price on my soul
But a free soul can’t be bought, you know
When that sun rises tomorrow, hopefully it’ll shine some of its light on you
Oh, you can try
But you’ll never own me

So I waited in the shadows for freedom to be revealed
But nothing ever changed, my sentence was never repealed
Oh, little did I know, I’d always held the key to my chains
Oh, you can try
But you’ll never own me

Well the baby bird was given wings
So no matter how high the mountains, she could always be free
Well I’m sorry, but it’s time for me to go, and I’ve waited so long to let you know
That you can try
But you’ll never own me
Oh, you can try
But you’ll never own me
