The shades go 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 won't 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 won't ever let you down, no

I'm not trying to be somebody else
Don't you know me? I won't ever let you
I won't ever let you

What they say
What they know
What they think won't 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 won't ever let you down, yeah, oh

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