Love's alive in the city
I feel it deep down
Soon I'll be sitting pretty
I'm gonna break new ground
The road ahead don't scare me
Cause the future's mine to hold
So why change me

'Cause you don't know what it's like
Yeah to walk in my shoes
Step by step I'm getting there (getting there)
Hey, you don't know what it's like
In a world so brand new
For a girl that's getting there it's so unclear
But I swear I'm getting there, getting there

So I make a left turn
When everyone goes right
Yeah I dress kinda funny
And stay up all night
But I know I'll find the way
'Cause I got a heart of gold
So don't blame me

'Cause you don't know what it's like
Yeah to walk in my shoes
Step by step I'm getting there (getting there)
Hey, you don't know what it's like
In a world so brand new
For a girl that's getting there it's so unclear
But I swear I'm getting there, getting there

I'll make my own mistakes and sweet success
I'm not here to recreate your yesterday's best

One by one when it's done half the fun is getting there
So why change me

'Cause you don't know what it's like
Yeah to walk in my shoes
Step by step I'm getting there (getting there)
Hey, you don't know what it's like
In a world so brand new
For a girl that's getting there it's so unclear
But I swear I'm getting there, getting there
