(VERSE ONE)

We're always together

People say we're inseparable

But really they're just seeing you

And I'm standing in the shadows

(VERSE TWO)

Everything they hear is your idea

I like you, but I can't stand this

I gotta stand up for myself

I want people to see me for who I am

(Chorus)

I'm gonna….

Dream my own dreams

Live my own life

I'm not gonna follow you anymore

(VERSE THREE)

You may not like this new me, but

I have to do this

I have to make my own way

And show people that I am me

(VERSE FOUR)

I am finally ready to step out of the shadows

To let the spotlight fall on me

I've appreciated all you've down

But I gotta live it my way

(Chorus)

I'm gonna….

Dream my own dreams

Live my own life

I'm not gonna follow you anymore

(VERSE FIVE)

There were days when I thought I'd never do this

When I thought you were always right

And I knew nothing of life

But I've realized that I know something

(VERSE SIX)

I know that I can be my own person

I can walk alone

I may need help sometimes

But I'm gonna survive without you…

Dictating my every step

(Chorus)

I'm gonna….

Dream my own dreams

Live my own life

I'm not gonna follow you anymore

I'll live my own….life
