Time to Be Somebody

Time to be somebody
Time to be somebody

Time to be somebody
Who’s more than just a story I believe
Time to be somebody
Who’s more than just a shadow in a dream

Who’s that shining up his armor
With his heart out on his sleeve
Who’s that looking in the mirror
And who’s that staring back at me

chorus:
Time to be somebody (oh-oh)
Time to be somebody (oh-oh)
Time to be somebody
Somebody I should meet

Who’s that living in my pocket
Who’s that sleeping in my bed
Who’s that talking like they know it all
And can’t remember anything they said

And who’s always in a hurry
When there’s no place left to go
Who’s that giving you direction
And looking for his own way back home

chorus:
Time to be somebody (oh-oh)
Time to be somebody (oh-oh)
Time to be somebody
Somebody I should know

bridge:
(Somebody I should know)
This stranger on the street
Goin’ up in smoke
Tryin’ to take the heat
Hangin’ by a thread
Pretendin’ he ain’t scared
Given up for dead
Comin’ up for air
Time to be somebody

(solo)

chorus:
Time to be somebody (oh-oh)
Time to be somebody (oh-oh)
Time to be somebody
Somebody I believe
