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

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

You got my number but I always knew the score
Who did you think I was?

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?

You got my number but I always knew the score
Who did you think I was?
Who did you think I was?

You got my number but I always knew the score
Who did you think I was?
Who did you think I was
