Nobody Knows Lyrics

by Billy Squier

I may get around, I may laugh a lot
Now you'd think that I'd be happy with the life I got
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Ain't nobody really knows the inner side of me

I may seem secure, I could have it made
You might think you see a lucky man who made the grade
Nobody knows what dreams I see
Ain't nobody really sure just who they wanna be

But everybody has a place and time
A chance to live, a need to find
We all got somethin' that we care about
I propose you find it out

It's not in a book or a magazine
Or the stars who guide our fortunes on the silver screen
Nobody knows, it's up to me
Ain't nobody who can say it like it ought to be

I see my future at the rainbow's end
Happy hours, timeless friends
And if I'd ever chance to find my way
Rest assured I will stay

You may see your life as a compromise
You may live to find the promise dancin' in your eyes
Nobody knows it's meant to be
Let the magic of the moment say it all to me
