holding my own lyrics – the darkness

baby, everything has fallen into place
my life is so exciting now i’ve got my sp*ce
like a splash of water on my face
lately i’m doing what i can do to pleasure me
i’m finding time to focus on my fantasies
i’m satisfied in my own company

i don’t need your permission
to take this matter in my own two hands

‘cos i’m holding my own
give or take a tear or two
i’m holding my own
no matter what i put myself through

lady, all we seem to do is talk about
we take apart and *n*lyse our ins and outs
honey, i would rather do without

no-one to answer to
i won’t spend another lifetime begging you

‘cos i’m holding my own
give or take a tear or two
i’m holding my own
no matter what i put myself through
i’m holding my own

there’s a spring in my stride
there’s a twinkle in my dying eyes

‘cos i’m holding my own
give or take a tear or two
i’m holding my own
no matter what i put myself through
