Lyrics

Can you see me?
'Cause I'm right here
Can you listen
'Cause I've been tryin' to make you notice
What would it mean to me
To feel like somebody
We've been on our way to nowhere
tryin' so hard to get there
and I say

Oh, We're gonna let it show
We're gonna just let go of everything
Holdin' Back our dreams
And try to make it come alive
C'mon let it shine so they can see
We were meant to be
Somebody
somebody else
Some How
Some Day
Some Way
Somebody

I'm so tired
of bein' invisible
But I feel it, yeah
Like a fire below the surface
Tryin' to set me free
Burnin' inside of me
'Cause we're standin' on the edge now
It's a long way down

But I say Oh, We're gonna let it show
We're gonna just let go of everything
Holdin' back our dreams
And try to make it come alive
C'mon let it shine so they can see
We were meant to be
Somebody
Somebody else
Some how
Some Day
Some Way
Somebody

We will walk out of this darkness
Feel a spotlight glownin' like a yellow sun
And when we fall, we'll fall together
'Til we get back up and we will rise as one

Oh, We're gonna let it show
We're gonne just let go of everything
Holdin' back our dreams
And try to make it come alive
C'mon let it shine so they can see
We were meant to be
Somebody
Somebody else
Some How
Some Day
Some Way
Somebody

History

"Somebody" is the first single released from the soundtrack Lemonade Mouth (2011), for the Disney Channel television movie of the same name. It was produced by Reed Vertelney, who also co-wrote with Lindy Robbins. Musically, the song is prominent pop rock that runs through an pop oriented beat. Mendler's vocals span from F#3-D#5.

Critical reception

Kate Conrad form AOL said that the song was about how to turn bitter into something sweet and is a good mix of rock and pop music. Pop Dust criticized the lack of consistency in the production of the song, calling it as unattractive: "The song’s not that bad—it’s professionally mediocre at the very least—but it's hard to not wish that Disney had used this chance to at least attempt to humor the teenage-outsider contingent. Something to demonstrate at least token awareness of high-school misfitdom extending beyond the slightly goofier Jonas Brothers".

Chart performance

The song debuted (and peaked) at number 89 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 12 on the US Billboard Heatseekers chart.

Music video

A lyrics music video was released on the Disney website later that same day. On March 18, 2011, the official music video for the song premiered on Disney Channel during a special Prom-themed The Suite Life on Deck.
