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" 

[Chorus]
'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 days 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" 

[Chorus]

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 down) 

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? 

[Chorus]

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
