Born to Be Somebody” is the seventh track from Justin Bieber's second remix album, Never Say Never: The Remixes.

Background Edit

Diane Warren wasn’t in the studio with Justin. She ran into the head of music at Paramount and Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun, at a restaurant, and they were talking about the movie Never Say Never. Scooter was saying, “I need a ‘Man in the Mirror.’ I need a great, inspiring song.”[2]

LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
There's a dream in my soul
A fire that's deep inside me
There's a me no one knows
Waiting to be set free

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm gonna see that day
I can feel it, I can taste it
Change is coming my way

[Chorus]
I was born to be somebody
Ain't nothing that's ever gonna stop me
I'll light up the sky like lighting
I'm gonna rise above, show 'em what I'm made of
I was born to be somebody, I was born to be
And this world will belong to me

[Verse 2]
This life can kick you around, woah
This world can make you feel small, woah
They will not keep me down, woah
I was born to stand tall

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm going all the way
I can feel it, I believe it
I'm here, I'm here to stay

[Chorus]
I was born to be somebody
Ain't nothing that's ever gonna stop me
I'll light up the sky like lighting
I'm gonna rise above, show 'em what I'm made of
I was born to be somebody, I was born to be
And this world will belong to me

[Bridge]
Feel it, believe it
Dream it, be it

[Chorus]
I was born to be somebody
Ain't nothing that's ever gonna stop me
I'll light up the sky like lighting
I'm gonna rise above, show 'em what I'm made of
I was born to be somebody, I was born to be
And this world will belong to me

[Outro]
Oh oh, oh oh
And this world will belong to me
Yeah, yeah, oh
This world will belong to me
