You always tried to tell me what to do
I need my own s***e, more room to move
And when the goin' gets tough, believe in myself
Don't need to rely on anyone else
I'm independent and I feel free
To live my life the way I want it to be
I'm independent and I want you to know
I'm the boss and I'm making it out on my own

Don't think that I don't love you cuz I do
I just don't want to lose myself in you
And if the goin' gets tough, I'll stand alone
Takin' my chances out on my own

I'm independent and I feel free
To live my life the way I want it to be
I'm independent and I want you to know
I'm the boss and I'm making it out on my own

Ooh, I want my independence
I want my independence

[Instrumental]

Better listen to me, gonna make you see
Don't mess with me
Just set me free, gonna make you see
It's up to me
I'm out on my own, I'm out on my
Out on my, Out on my own
I'm out on my,
Out on my own boy

Gonna live my life my way
I'm gonna live my life my way
I'm gonna live my life
My way, my way, my way, Hey

I need control
Better listen to me, I'm gonna make you see
Don't mess with me, just set me free
Gonna make you see, It's up to me
I feel free, Yeah
(Independent, Independent)

(Independent) And I feel free
To live my life the way I want it to be
I'm independent and I want you to know
I'm the boss and I'm making it out on my own

I'm independent, I feel free
To live my life the way I want it to be
I'm independent and I want you to know
I'm the boss and I'm making it out on my own

I can make it on my own, I can make it
I can make it, I can make it on my own
I want you to know, I want you to
Want you to, Want you to know..

It's my way or no way!
