  • Front row center in that little white church
    I was singing at a baby laying in a manger
    Eight years old wearing angel wings
    Yeah, and to this day
    That's what you see

    I've been daddy's little girl since my first cry
    And it was hard turning eighteen, saying goodbye
    You told me I was gonna take the world by storm
    And mama said you cried all the way home

    You think I'm strong, you think I'm fearless
    Even when I'm, I'm at my weakest
    You always see the best in me when I can't
    I wanna be the girl you think I am

    I got my flaws and I've got regrets
    And I know there's more on the road ahead
    When I wonder if I'll ever measure up
    Oh, I thank God for a father's love

    'Cause you think I'm brave, and you think I'm beautiful
    You think that I can do the impossible
    You always see the best in me when I can't
    I wanna be the girl you think I am

    Oh, whoa
    Oh, whoa
    The girl you think I am, yeah
    Ooh, yeah

    All I want, more than anything
    Is to make you proud of me

    'Cause you think I'm strong, and you think I'm fearless
    Even when I'm, I'm at my weakest
    You believe in me, yeah, you're my biggest fan
    So I wanna be the girl you think I am
    I wanna be the girl you think I am Writer/s: CARRIE UNDERWOOD, DAVID HODGES, HILLARY LINDSEY
