Its My Life - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics

(micky dolenz)
Micky dolenz music (bmi)

Lead vocal: micky dolenz

It's my life and i'm takin' over now
It's my life and it's time that i learned how
No excuses. for the truth is
It's my life now

I stumble and i fall
And i think about it all
Then i make amends
But it never ends
And i've just begun to wonder why
And i listen to the songs,
And i read all the words,
And i seem to remember something that i heard
Of a fire and a cave and shadows on the wall

It's my life and i'm takin' over now
It's my life and it's time that i learned how
No excuses. for the truth is
It's my life now

I wanna believe in the miracles
But they mix me up. then they pass the cup
And i've just begun to look the other way
And i don't want to lean on the stars or on the dreams
On the fantasies or the deities
Don't i think it's time to lean on me?

It's my life and i'm takin' over now
It's my life and it's time that i learned how
No excuses. for the truth is
It's my life now

No excuses. for the truth is
It's my life now
