A Place In This World Lyrics

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...

    A place in this world is about the ups and downs of life, and trying to find out who you are and where you belong in this world. In the song, she states, "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". In those sentences, she means that all she knows is that she's gonna have to figure herself out on her own, by herself, and she knows that along the way there will be good things and bad happening, but just because she makes a mistake doesn't mean the whole world stops.

    I wanted to record the song to my producer and I want to my music and probably the places is to recorded music and remember the song and started the Olympic events, and to practice the song before we start the tour.

    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.

    I would take thus place to record for being artists, but my recording producer will be good and very talented.

    I think the song is reminding going back to Minnesota because I miss my home, I was a little girl I was about 4 years old and Philip had Nathan so,I went with my uncle and see if Amanda is doing fine, I think Andrew taught his mom to breathe to clear that situation about that. Nathan is the best I loved him very much. I especially have Philip around to have. I love my life’s better as my brothers.

    It's just about a girl who doesn't know exactly what she wants or what she wants to be, but she's trying to find 'her place in this world' - she's probably trying to find herself.

    She's lost and she is trying to find herself in this world - something that everyone should probably do.

    It's about trying to find a place in the world. Basically meaning your trying to fit in and find your spot in the world. Like if your going to be a doctor or a actress or maybe a singer.

    • Following your dream not matter what happens
    • Fitting in with others but being unique at the same time
    • Taking risks
    • She doesn’t know what’s in her future, though she goes ahead knowing the obstacles in her way
    • She is by herself and lonely but is determined
    • She will have to figure out on her own, knowing the ups and downs. She knows that is something bad will happen, she ha to get back on her feet.
    • It is not the end of the world if she makes a mistake, mistakes happen and always will

    a girl that is lost in the dark where there is no light...
    that you can't see what is right
    even if it is wrong, you don't kno...
    what she can only do is walk straight towards something.
    until she can see the light
    this could be endless...but there is only hope that is light..

    i know this is aboutt her trying to become a star from her one concert but i find it personally as a brake eup song. and not knowing what path you wanna take.. either the path to try to get im back or the path to moving on. and knowing youll be right about somethings but wrong on others. just a path on life to.

    It's a song about trying to figure out what's going to happens in your life. You realize that you will be right & wrong, but that doesn't stop you from trying, anyways
