lyrics

staring hard at the rearview mirror
waving bye as they disappear
driving off to land in a brand new place,
so many people but not one familiar face

it's alright, knew you had to do this one day
it's alright, it's okay
gotta make it your own way

i'm learning to be myself by myself you see
i-n-d-e-p-e-n-d-e-n-t
deciphering exactly what it means
to stand on my own two feet
learning to be myself by myself

met a boy on the train downtown
started mingling to that city sound
going the same way and it felt so right
til he suddenly stopped stepped out and left
without even saying bye

it's alright, it's okay
he's probably making his own way
it's alright it's okay
gotta go it my own way

i'm learning to be myself by myself you see
i-n-d-e-p-e-n-d-e-n-t
deciphering exactly what it means
to stand on my own two feet
learning to be myself by myself

to be honest i like it
i'm not trying to fight it
no one to hold me but there's
no one to own me
just the self i was is so far away
and how this ends up,
i still can't say

but i'm learning to be myself by myself you see
i-n-d-e-p-e-n-d-e-n-t
deciphering exactly what it means
to stand on my own two fee-eet

learning to be myself by myself you see
i-n-d-e-p-e-n-d-e-n-t
deciphering exactly what it means
to stand on my own two fee~et

yeah i'm learning to be myself by myself
learning to be myself by myself
learning to be myself by myself
i'm learning to be myself by myself
