"In My Own Way" is a song from Shock Treatment with lyrics by Richard O'Brien and Richard Hartley (who also made the musical arrangements) released in 1981 on the film album.

Several songs from the film were originally written for Rocky Horror Shows His Heels, a never-made sequel to The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The songs were rewritten for the never-made The Brad and Janet Show and once again for Shock Treatment. Some of these songs also appeared in the 2015 musical Shock Treatment: The Musical.

Lyrics

These lyrics are from the 1981 film "Shock Treatment":

Janet Majors:
If only you knew how to win some prizes
If only you knew how to play
If you could sleep nights
Stop your crying
Then you might find out I still love you in my own way
If that's not enough then I am so sorry I met you
It was almost like leading you on
But there's more to it all
Than just wringing your heart out over something
That keeps on going wrong

So don't tell me you love me
How am I supposed to know what that means
No don't sell emotion
You can't find devotion
If you're falling apart at the seams

I hope that you smile
When you reach your conclusion
I hope that you'll know just what to say
But if it should mean that the party's over
You should know that I still love you
You should know that I still love you
You should know that I still love you
In my own way
In my own way
In my own way
In my own way

These lyrics are from the 1980 failed project "The Brad and Janet Show"

Janet Majors:
If only you knew how to win some prizes
If only you knew how to play
If you could sleep nights
Stop your crying
Then you might find out I still love you in my own way
If that's not enough then I am so sorry I met you
It was almost like leading you on
But there's more to it all
Than just wringing your heart out over something
That keeps on going wrong

So don't tell me you love me
How am I supposed to know what that means
No don't sell emotion
You can't buy devotion
By throwing despair on your dreams.

I hope that you smile
When you reach your conclusion
I hope that you'll know just what to say
But if it should mean that the party's over
You should know that I still love you
You should know that I still love you
You should know that I still love you
In my own way
