I don't know what I want, so don't ask me
Cause I'm still trying to figure it out
Don't know what's down this road, I'm just walking
Trying to see through the rain coming down
Even though I'm not the only one
Who feels the way I do

[Chorus:]

I'm alone, on my own, and that's all I know
I'll be strong, I'll be wrong, oh but life goes on
Oh, I'm just a girl, trying to find a place in
This world

Got the radio on, my old blue jeans
And I'm wearing my heart on my sleeve
Feeling lucky today, got the sunshine
Could you tell me what more do I need
And tomorrow's just a mystery, oh yeah
But that's ok

[Chorus:]

I'm alone, on my own, and that's all I know
I'll be strong, I'll be wrong, oh but life goes on
Oh, I'm just a girl, trying to find a place in
This world

Maybe I'm just a girl on a mission
But I'm ready to fly

[Chorus:]

I'm alone, on my own, and that's all I know, oh
I'll be strong, I'll be wrong, oh but life goes on
Oh, im alone on my own, and that's all I know
Oh, I'm just a girl, trying to find a place in
This world

Oh, im just a girl
Oh, im just a girl,oh,oh yeah
Oh, im just a girl

    This is one of my favorite songs.. [actually, her(Taylor Alison Swift) songs are my favorite].. The rhythm, the tune, the lyrics are perfect.. Love it.. @mano816: yeah, this song's got a really great meaning.. we are all created to have a purpose in life and we are the ones who'll figure them out..
