I got half a smile and zero shame,
I got a reflection with a different name.
Got a brand new blues that I can't explain.
Who did you think I was?

In the morning when the day begins
I'm makin' my mind but change it back again.
I am a shifter of the shape I'm in.
Who did you think I was?

[Chorus]
You've got my number but I always new the score.
Who did you think I was?

Am I the one who plays the quiet songs?
Is he the one who turns the ladies on?
Will I keep shinein' 'till my light is gone?
Who did you think I was?

[Chorus]

Here is a line that you won't understand,
I'm half of a boy but I'm twice the man,
Carry the weight of the world in the palm of my hand.
Who did you think I was?
Who did you think I was?
