"I Think I'm Ready" as written by and Katy/bruner Perry....
I'm used to opening my own doors and splitting the checks
He introduced me, was always just a friend
I bought a new dress, he never noticed
Always falling for these bad boys, such a challenge
I'm getting tired, of cleaning up after them
I think I'm ready, to be a woman

Oh love, I think I'm ready
Ready for it

You were such a surprise
An unexpected gift
Said I was pretty, and I believed it
Not really used to all this attention
Told myself I don't deserve you
And this is just a phase
Could I get used to, being loved the right way?
I wanna argue, but there is nothing to say

Oh love, I think I'm ready
Ready for it
Ready for it
Oh love, I think I'm ready

Cause you send me flowers, when there's no occasion
Yeah we talk for hours, you still wanna listen
Won't hold it against me if I just need you to hold me tonight
My mother always told me that you'd show up one day
So scared to feel this way but love, I think I'm ready
Ready for it
Ready for it
Oh love, I think I'm ready
Ready for it
Ready for it
Oh love, I think I'm ready

    General Commenti love this song. it's obviously a love song.
    about how she's ready to be loved, and be in a real relationship with a guy that actually cares.
    instead of the losers she used to date, who never treated her the way she deserved to be treated.
    although she thinks she's ready, she's also scared.

    this is a great song, i just wish she hadn't deleted it from her myspace because i can't find it anywhere else :[

    General CommentThis song is absolutely beautiful. My favorite song off the album. The words are beautifully written. She proves that not only can she write songs about a drunk night out in Vegas, kissing a girl, and her weird relationship with an emo boy, but finally being able to put all that behind her and have a real relationship. Love it. She's lyrically gifted.

    General CommentThis song describes how I feel to the dot. It's beautiful, like her. She's talented, she doesn't sound like most girls out there, ex. Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, and all these other female artists.

    General CommentThis song isn't necessarily about actual love, so to speak. I believe when she's saying "oh love," she means to the man she is speaking to throughout the whole song, not the actual concept of love.

    Throughout the song she is saying how she's ready to take the step as a woman and pursue this wonderful guy. She's just worried that she doesn't deserve this guy, that he's too good for her, because all of her past relationships have been really crappy.

    I think if anything she is on the brink of falling for this guy, but it is so foreign to her in a way. She just isn't sure if she can handle this type of guy and eventually being in love with him one day, but she thinks she's ready for it.

    General CommentHow beautiful is this song. So delicate and pretty. Totally different to any of her other stuff.
    I think its a song not only about being ready for a caring relationship, but becoming a woman and learning more about herself

    General CommentThis song is the story of my life. I had a bad habit of falling for bad boys who always failed me in the end, and now I'm with this incredibly sweet guy. At first I thought maybe I would get bored, but he just keeps me smiling all day honestly.
