They Don't Own Me

Album: These People (2016)
  • Is it true what they say?
    Nothing in life is free
    Are you looking this way
    Surely this can't be

    I know that you
    Ain't like the other ones
    March to a different beat, babe
    Banging a different drum

    I think I told you before that
    They don't
    They don't own me
    I think I told you before that
    They don't
    They don't own me

    I ain't playing their games
    I am nobody's fool
    Yeah, I know how it feels
    I broke those rules

    Are you walking with me?
    Or are you running with them?
    Are you ever free?
    Is this something that you understand?

    I think I told you before that
    They don't
    They don't own me
    I think I told you before that
    They don't
    They don't own me

    They don't
    They don't own me

    Is it really that strange
    To try and find some peace?
    Is it so opaque
    That you still can't see?

    Them, right up above
    I wonder what they can hear
    I guess we all mess up, baby
    Mmm, we're here, then disappear

    I think I told you before that
    They don't
    They don't own me
    I think I told you before that
    They don't
    They don't own me

    I think I told you before that
    They don't
    They don't own me
    I think I told you before, yeah
    They don't
    They don't own me Writer/s: RICHARD ASHCROFT
