A New Life (Sign on the Dotted Line)

I just signed away my life, and I have no apologies.
I’m not afraid to be alone.
If anything, I’d say that it’s the other way around, I’m alone I’m afraid.
Why do I want what I can’t keep?
All my life in these boxes, I’m moving on.
So much space, don’t let it go to waste.
Start with nothing and end up with everything I’ve ever wanted.
I’ll have stars in my room at night and the sun in my hair in the morning.

I have to make this work, I just need something to go on.
Not to show off, but I’ve got to show you what I’m made of.
Whatever it takes to change your mind, I’m already on it, you just can’t see it yet.
I know that you don’t believe in me, but I’m not in it for you, I’m out for myself now.
Make room, make way, this is where I’ll be.
Come this way if you want to find me, but leave my old life at the door.

What am I missing?
Friends – Check
Money – Check
Room to become my own person – Right this way

There’s no shame in changing direction.
New directions are gonna take me so far.
It’s a new day, make way for a new way to live.
I’m on my way up, with each floor higher than the last.
Step by step I’ll lose what I don’t need.
Step by step I’ll find what I’ve been needing.
On my own and for myself.
I need to be here.
I’m sorry that I didn’t do this sooner.
