Sometimes I wonder
How it's going to feel
Will my first love be true and real?
Will I be ready when
My heart starts to fall?
What will I do when my love comes to call?

And my daddy tells me
That I light up his world
Every day he says, "Darling
You're my best girl"
He tried to teach me
From the very start
The meaning of love
So nobody breaks my heart

Will my love come in a bowl of fire?
Will it be filled with hope and desire?
Will my love come in the pouring rain?
Am I ready for the joy?
Am I ready for the pain?
Am I ready for the boy?
Am I ready for love?
For love

I know I'm not a little
Girl anymore
Because I'm feeling things
I've never felt before
Sweet sensations
And anticipations
Calling commotion
To my emotions

And I hear the words
My daddy says to me
He said, "Be true to yourself
And keep your spirit free
And love will find you

One way or another
Be good to yourself
And be good to each other"

Will my love come in a bowl of fire?
Will it be filled with hope and desire?
Will my love come in the pouring rain?
Am I ready for the joy?
Am I ready for the pain?
Am I ready for the joy?
Am I ready for the pain?
Am I ready for love?

It's a run around the world
And it's moving so fast
Though I want to find
A love that's going to last
A love so strong
That it can withstand
The weight of the world
In the palm of its hand

Will my love come in a bowl of fire?
Will it be filled with hope and desire?
Will my love come in the pouring rain?
Am I ready for the joy?
Am I ready for the pain?
Am I ready for the joy?
Am I ready for the pain?
Am I ready for this game?
Am I ready for the kiss?
Am I ready for the stars?
Am I ready for the bliss?
Am I ready for love?

    My InterpretationThis is my fear and used to be Taylor's.
    Sometimes you get so many disappointments in love you just wonder "Am I doing this right?" And I think is that what Taylor is trying to explain.
