Nobody with Me

from by Peter J. Brant

lyrics

I’ve never been called a “somebody”
I’m almost positive
More likely I’d be called a ”nobody”
Not trying to be negative

People get lost in this crowd all the time
Trippin’ up, Burnin’ out, drained of all life
But by yourself I saw you dancin’ so confidently
Not a care for anyone’s thoughts on if you’re a ”somebody”
Maybe you’d like to be
A “nobody” with me
These paths they lead us in circles eternally
yet demand that we follow them
And even more to think that I once believed
They’d solve my problems
The thing is when you see those that they call “somebody”’s
Though they’ve “made it” they seem just as lost and lonely as me.
maybe they’d like to be
A “nobody” with me.

Without a worry, we’re dancin’ so confidently
Not a care for anyone’s thoughts on if we are “somebody”’s

We let our heads empty and just follow our feet
Now we’re surprised to find that after all the pain and grief
we’ve come to be
Someone’s “somebody”
