Be Somebody

Album: The End Is Where We Begin (2012)

  • I'm just the boy inside the man
    Not exactly who you think I am
    Trying to trace my steps back here again
    So many times
    I'm just a speck inside your hand
    You came and made me who I am
    I remember where it all began
    So clearly

    I feel a million miles away
    Still you connect me in your way
    And you create in me
    Something I would've never seen
    When I could only see the floor
    You made my window a door
    So when they say they don't believe
    I hope that they see you in me

    After all the lights go down
    I'm just the words you are the sound
    A strange type of chemistry
    How you've become a part of me
    And when I sit alone at night
    Your thoughts burn through me like a fire
    You're the only one who knows
    Who I really am

    We all wanna be somebody
    We just need a taste of who we are
    We all wanna be somebody
    We're willing to go, but not that far

    And we're all see through, just like glass
    And we can shatter just as fast
    That light's been burned out for a while
    I still see it every time I pass
    It was lost in the corners of my mind
    Behind a box of reasons why
    I never doubted it was there
    It just took a little time to find
    And even when

    I feel a million miles away
    Still you connect me in your way
    And you create in me
    Something I would have never seen
    When I could only see the floor
    You made my window a door
    So when they say they don't believe
    I hope that they see you in me

    After all the lights go down
    I'm just the words you are the sound
    A strange type of chemistry
    How you've become a part of me
    And when I sit alone at night
    Your thoughts burn through me like a fire
    You're the only one who knows
    Who I really am

    We all wanna be somebody
    We just need a taste of who we are
    We all wanna be somebody
    We're willing to go but not that far

    We all wanna be somebody
    We just need a taste of who we are
    We all wanna be somebody
    We're willing to go but not that far

    I'm just the boy inside the man
    Not exactly who you think I am
    Trying to trace my steps back here again
    So many times

    When I could only see the floor
    You made my window a door
    So when they say they don't believe
    I hope that they see you in me Writer/s: Joel Bruyere, Steve Augustine, Trevor Mcnevan
