Somebody Else
Lyrics
Music & Lyrics by JJ Grey

Some people say that I don't play
They say I got a temper when I'm in that way
But I don't know who that person is that acts like a fool
That's somebody else Lord I swear it ain't me
I guess I'm my own worst enemy
Cause I don't know who I am when I am - that somebody else

I grab up the keys I fly out the gate
The family is fighting I don't want to be late
Cause I'm going to tell them all about my ass like I said that I would
We're out in the yard yelling at each other
Hate in my eyes sisters and brothers
I don't know who I am when I am - that somebody else

The neighbors are watching cause its getting real loud
But making my stand yo it makes me feel proud
But I know tomorrow I'll feel the shame when I cool down
Baring my fangs when I hear my niece
Yell to the neighbors "Lord call the police"
Cause I don't know who I am when I am - that somebody else

I can't hear the yelling no more
My eyes glaze over as I reach for the door
I grab my pistol time to show these fools what time it is
Now I'm in jail for the rest of my life
I can't see my kids Lord I can't see my wife
Cause I don't know who I am when I am - that somebody else
