  • Baby, everything has fallen into place
    My life is so exciting now I've got my space
    Like a splash of water on my face
    Lately I'm doing what I can do to pleasure me
    I'm finding time to focus on my fantasies
    I'm satisfied in my own company

    I don't need your permission
    To take this matter in my own two hands

    'Cause I'm holding my own
    Give or take a tear or two
    I'm holding my own
    No matter what I put myself through

    Lady, all we seem to do is talk about
    We take apart and analyze our ins and outs
    Honey, I would rather do without

    No one to answer to
    I won't spend another lifetime begging you

    'Cause I'm holding my own
    Give or take a tear or two
    I'm holding my own
    No matter what I put myself through
    I'm holding my own

    There's a spring in my stride
    There's a twinkle in my dying eyes

    'Cause I'm holding my own
    Give or take a tear or two
    I'm holding my own
    No matter what I put myself through Writer/s: DANIEL FRANCIS HAWKINS, EDWIN JAMES GRAHAM, FRANCIS GILLES POULLAIN-PATTERSON, JUSTIN DAVID HAWKINS
