The shades gone up, mother's staring down
She don't know where he's been or how long he's been out
She said, "Boy I'm tired of waiting up while you're out with your friends"
He said "Mom I'm trying and I'm living my life the best way that I can"

'Cause I'm trying to be somebody
I'm not trying to be somebody else
This life is mine I'm living
Don't you know me? I wont ever let you down

The day has come, the son is moving on
She don't know where he'll go or when he's coming home
She said, "Son take care, don't let your dreams get too far out of sight"
He said, "I love you now, don't worry about me, you know I'll be fine"

'Cause I'm trying to be somebody
I'm not trying to be somebody else
This life is mine I'm living
Don't you know me? I wont ever let you down

No, I'm not trying to be somebody else
Don't you know me?
I wont ever let you
I wont ever let you

What they say
What they know
What they think wont ever bring me down
This life is mine and I am my own

I'm trying to be somebody
I'm not trying to be somebody else
This life is mine I lead
Don't you know me?

I'm trying to be somebody
I'm not trying to be somebody else
This life is mine I'm living
Don't you know me? I wont ever let you down

I'm not trying to be somebody else
Don't you know me? I wont ever let you down
I won't be nobody else
This life is mine and I am my own
