on my own time (write on!) lyrics – gym class heroes

[verse 1]
i wish i could unzip my skin and take it off
just to take a walk but i can’t do it
i don’t think i’ll make it on my own (on my own)
as when i take out my pen
and i wage it all, turn the page and fall
it just comes natural
i’m gonna make it on my own (on my own)

[chorus]
i just need time to walk it off,
but i can’t do it
i’ll write it on my own time
hey look i made it on my own (on my own)
i know she thinks that i don’t try, but i realize that i can do better
write, write on [4x]
makin’ a mess as i progress
no time to cry about it, do better
write, write on [2x]

[verse 2]
i wrote the greatest lines at the strangest times
now it’s payin’ off, but i still feel lost
cuz i can’t do it
i don’t think i’ll make it on my own (on my own)
so in between now it pacifies
i change my name to free, but she feels safe to me
so i’m livin’ dangerously
i’m gonna make it on my own (on my own)

[chorus]
i just need time to walk it off,
but i can’t do it
i’ll write it on my own time
hey look i made it on my own (on my own)
i know she thinks…
but i realize that i can do better
write, write on [4x]
makin’ a mess as i progress
no time to cry about it, do better
write, write on [4x]

[outro]
write on, write it on your own time (write, write on)
write on, write it on your own time (write, write on)…
