"A Place in This World" as written by Robert Orrall, Taylor Swift and Angelo,....
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

    Song MeaningThis is what Taylor says about it.

    She was 13 years old when she wrote this song. Her so-called friends were starting to be mean to her at school. She felt like an outcast.

    She's just trying to find her place. She thinks its in country music, but she isn't sure. There's a hidden message in these lyrics when they are typed in the little booklet when you buy the Fearless album. The message is: "Found It" :)

    My OpinionI really love this song...

    "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"

    I don't know what I want
    I'm trying to figure it out...

    Basically she's saying that she has no idea what she wants for the future, she's still figuring it out. She doesnt know what's going to happen when she takes this path, but she doesnt really mind because she's simply walking.


    "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"

    She relies on herself and nobody else. She could be wrong, and she might make mistakes but that doesnt matter because she's a strong person and life will still continue no matter how many mistakes she makes.
