Background

When asked about the song Swift said:

I wrote this song when I was thirteen and had just moved to Nashville. It was tough trying to find out how I was going to get where I wanted to go. I knew where I wanted to be, but I just didn’t know how to get there. I’m really happy this is on the album, because I feel like I finally figured it out.

Lyrics

I don't know what I want, so don't ask me
'Cause I'm still tryin' to figure it out,
Don't know what's down this road, I'm just walkin'
Tryin' to see through the rain comin' 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
Tryin' to find a place in this world

Got the radio on, my old blue jeans
And I'm wearin' my heart on my sleeve
Feelin' 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
Tryin' 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
Tryin' 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
