I can't cover my feelings
In the name of love
Or play it safe for a while 
Hey that was easy

And if living for myself
Is what I'm guilty of
Go on and sentence me
I'll still be free

It's my turn
To see what I can see
I hope you'll understand
That this time's just for me

Because it's my turn
With no apologies
I've given up the truth
For those I've tried to please, but now

It's my turn
If I don't have all the answers
At least I know and I'll take my share of chances
And there ain't no use in holding of
Because nothing stays the same

So I'll let it rain
'Cause the rain ain't gonna hurt me
And I'll let you go
Though I know it won't be easy

It's my turn
With no more room for lies
For years that I've seen my life
Through someone else's eyes, but now

My turn
To try and find my way
And if I should get lost
At least I'll own today

Because it's my, my turn
Oh, it's my turn, yeah
And there ain't no use in holding on
Because nothing stays the same

So I'll let it rain
'Cause the rain it ain't gonna hurt me
And I'll let you go
Though I know it won't be easy

It's my turn
To see what I can see
And I hope you'll understand
That this time's just for me because it's

My turn
To turn and say goodbye
And I sure would like to know
That you're still on my side, because

It's my turn, yeah
It's my turn, my turn, yes it is

(Yes) yeah, (it's my turn) it's my turn
(Right now) right now, right now yeah
(Yeah) yeah, (it's my turn) it's my turn
(Right now) right now, (it is)

I said it is (yeah) oh yeah
(It's my turn) my turn
(Right now) right now, woah
(Yeah) and I'll be
(It's my turn) that it is y'all
(Right now) and don't you know (it is)

(Yeah) yes it is now (my turn)
Right now (right now)
Yeah, yeah (yeah)
Oh yeah (it's my turn) it's my turn
(Right now) right now (it is)
(Hey) hey
(It's my turn) I believe (right now)
I'm gonna walk around
(Hey) it's my turn (it's my turn)
Oh yes it is (right now) oh
