Be Somebody Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Joker Johnny
Was a lie teller
'Cause he thought somebody
Might like him better

So he built it up and built it up
'Til it all fell down
But he never thought the bitter truth
Was gonna find him out

He did it all
To impress someone else
When all he had to do
Was stop and be himself

Oh, everybody
Wants to be somebody
Oh yes, it's true
No telling what
Some people will do

Oh, nobody
Wants to be a nobody
'Cause it's a far more bitter fame
To go through this life
Carryin' 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
But what they don't know is
What comes around
It comes right back around

What they really wanted
Is to be accepted
To find out in the end
That the streets are self-corrected

Oh, everybody
Wants to be somebody
Oh yes, it's true
No telling what
Some people will do

Oh, nobody
Wants to be a nobody
'Cause it's a far more bitter fame
To go through this life
Carryin' 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 pain
Is harder than a bullet to the brain

Ohh, everybody
Wants to be a somebody
Oh yes, it's true
No telling what
Some people will do

Oh, nobody
Wants to be a nobody
'Cause It's a far more bitter fame
To go through this life
Carryin' that

Everybody
Wants to be a somebody
Yes, it's true
No telling what
Some people will do

Say, nobody
Wants to be a nobody
'Cause It's a far more bitter fame
To go through life, oh

Always carrying that weight
Always carrying that weight
You gotta let it go, let it go
Listen one more time, I say

Always carrying that weight
Always carrying that weight
Just let it go, you just put it down
Let it, carrying the weight
