If I had one chance to live my life again
I wouldn't make no changes now or way back when (yeah)
And if everything turns out the way I hope it goes
But I can't wait to find out what it is that God knows

But I don't wanna think about what's gonna come around for me
I'll just take it day by day 'cause it's the only way
To be the best that I can be

I never pretend to be something I'm not
You get what you see when you see what I've got
We live in the real world, I'm just a real girl
I know exactly where I stand
And all I can do is be true to myself
I don't need permission from nobody else
'Cause this is the real world, I'm not a little girl
I know exactly who I am

And nothing's ever perfect there's no guarantee
And if I knew the answers it would put my mind at ease (no)
So I'll just keep on going the way I've gone so far
And maybe I'll end up tryin' to catch a fallin' star (yeah)

But I don't wanna think about what's gonna come around for me,
I'll just take it day by day 'cause it's the only way
To be the best that I can be

I never pretend to be something I'm not
You get what you see when you see what I've got
We live in the real world, I'm just a real girl
I know exactly where I stand
And all I can do is be true to myself
I don't need permission from nobody else
'Cause this is the real world, I'm not a little girl
I know exactly who I am

Baby this is who I am
Don't need you to understand
Cuz everything is right where it should be
It wont be long til you know about me
Cuz I don't give a-a
Even when I'm out of love
Cuz everything's just how it should be
And it wont be long til you know about me

I never pretend to be something I'm not
You get what you see when you see what I've got
We live in the real world, I'm just a real girl
I know exactly where I stand
And all I can do is be true to myself
I don't need permission from nobody else
'Cause this is the real world, I'm not a little girl
I know exactly who I am

I never pretend to be something I'm not
You get what you see when you see what I've got
We live in the real world, I'm just a real girl
I know exactly where I stand
And all I can do is be true to myself
I don't need permission from nobody else
'Cause this is the real world, I'm not a little girl
I know exactly who I am

I know exactly who I am

    This is a great song, I think it's very sweet, she knows exactly who she is and who she wants to be, like the song This Is Me by Demi Lovato with Joe Jonas... :)
