Be Somebody

Danny Gokey

Joker Johnny was a lie teller
'Cause he thought somebody might 
like him better
So he built it up, built it up till 
it all fell down
But he never thought the bitter 
truth was gonna find him out
He did it all to impress someone 
else
But all he had to do was stop and be
 himself

Now everybody wants to be somebody
Yes, it's true
No tellin' what some people will do,
 oh
Nobody wants to be a nobody
'Cause it's a far more bitter fate
To go through this life
Carrying the weight

When they shoot somebody
For the clothes they wear
And they'll advertise it like it's 
ordinary
They got territories so they stand 
their ground
What they really know is what comes 
around
It comes right back around

What they really wanted Is to be accepted And find out in the end That the streets are self-correcting Everybody wants to be somebody Yes, it's true No tellin' what some people will do, oh Nobody wants to be a nobody 'Cause it's a far more bitter fate To go through this life Carrying the weight Far more worse than dying Is living with a soul That's laden with the consequence Of all the happiness you stole Sometimes a guilty conscience and carrying the weight Is harder than a bullet to the brain Yeah, yeah, yeah C'mon oh, oh, oh, oh Everybody wants to be somebody Yes it's true No tellin' what some people will do, oh Nobody wants to be a nobody 'Cause it's a far more bitter fate Yes, it is, yes, it is Everybody wants to be somebody Yes it's true No tellin' what some people will do Nobody wants to be a nobody 'Cause it's a far more bitter fate To go through this life carrying Never carrying the weight Never carrying the weight You gotta let it down, let it go Listen to me as I say Never carrying that weight Never carrying that weight You gotta let it go Let it down
