Verse 1

So you think that I'm still ten year old?

Afraid to speak my mind, afraid to be bold?

Well from now on, I'll do it the way I want; I've got nothing to lose.

I'm gonna make my own choices, and walk down the path I choose.

So I'll color my hair my way, I'll get as many tattoos as I want.

I won't wear that fake smile anymore, I'll be rude, I'll be blunt.

Chorus

So just back off from my life right now.

I'm in control here, get that into your head somehow.

You can't pretend that I'm someone who's not me.

So just back off dude, here and now I'm breaking free.

Verse 2

Yeah, that's right, I'm rebelling against you.

But this is my life, so I'll do what I wanna do.

I'm cutting myself lose from the rules you'd set, I'm breaking free

From that perfect image in your head, that you'd painted out of me.

Cause I'm human, I'm allowed to make mistakes, I'm flawed.

You can't tame me, you can't mould me, I won't be clawed.

Chorus

So just back off from my life right now.

I'm in control here, get that into your head somehow.

You can't pretend that I'm someone who's not me.

So just back off dude, here and now I'm breaking free.

Bridge

This is my life, and my decision.

I'll live it my way without your inspection.

And if I mess it up, it's my mess!

So suck it up, yeah, in your face!

Chorus

So just back off from my life right now.

I'm in control here, get that into your head somehow.

You can't pretend that I'm someone who's not me.

So just back off dude, here and now I'm breaking free.


A/N: from my diary. I'm so tired of my "can't do wrong"/perfect image, and of people telling me what I should do with my life, ugh. My parents are awesome, no pressure about anything, thank God!
