Wouldn't I Be Someone

 Maybe there's a reason why we broke up
 I could dedicate my life to something new
 But I must have been asleep but then I woke up
 Working out why I was still with you
 All the things I wish I could have been
 Wouldn't I be someone, someone
 And I would be respected
 In the prime of my life, I'll do ev'rything right I'll begin
 Wouldn't I be something, something
 I would get a reputation
 In the prime of my life, I'll do ev'rything right I'll begin
 Midnight stars are shining on my shoeshine
 Telling me the things I'm gonna be
 Now the hurts all gone, I've pushed them all behind me
 And the world is gonna fall in love with me
 All the things I wish I could have been
 Wouldn't I be someone, someone
 And I would be respected
 In the prime of my life, I'll do ev'rything right
 I'll begin
 Wouldn't I be something, something
 I would get a reputation
 In the prime of my life, I'll do ev'rything right
 I'll begin
