  • 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

    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 okay

    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

    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, I'm 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, I'm just a girl
    Oh, I'm just a girl, oh, oh
    Oh, I'm just a girl Writer/s: Angelo Petraglia, Robert Ellis Orrall, Taylor Alison Swift

  • Jillian from AmericaThere's A Place For Us written by Carrie Underwood in the year 2010 relates to this song in a lot of ways. You feel like an outcast a lot but no matter what you are going to find your place.
  • Alisha from Grand Prarie, TxYeah, I moved lots of times, and I always felt like an outcast, and I haven't found my place yet, and I feel like, maybe, I'm just a girl on a mission, and I feel like I'm alone
  • Bailey from Toronto, OnI haven't moved, but i have switched schools and all that. but i still feels like i can connect with this song and what she means
  • Brooke from Buda, Txthis song kinda hits home. Ive moved 9 times.
  • Ronny from London, United Kingdomthis song gives me a sort if different feeling, a diferent meaning. it makes me think about school, about friends,about life. it makes me think about change, about leaving my friends and going off and having to be on my own and just find that place in this world. <3 x
  • Erika from Anthony, NmI've never moved so this song doesn't go in my life.
