You were a cute girl standing backstage
It was bound to happen
You had a smile across your face
It was bound to happen
What you wore and how you bore it so well
What did you expect would happen?
You were a cute girl standing backstage
It was bound to happen

I took on heaven
Took on heaven
Took on heaven
To find peace
I took on the world
Took on the world
Took on the world
To find me again

I am not my body
I am somebody
I am not my body
I am somebody

You were a cute girl standing backstage
It was bound to happen
You had a smile across your face
It was bound to happen
What you wore and how you bore it so well
What did you expect would happen?
You were a cute girl standing backstage
It was bound to happen

I took on heaven
Took on heaven
Took on heaven
To find peace
I took on the world
Took on the world
Took on the world
To find me again

I am not my body
I am somebody
I am not my body
I am somebody
I am not my body
I am somebody
I am not my body
I am somebody

I took on heaven
Took on heaven
Took on heaven
To find peace
I took on the world
Took on the world
Took on the world
To find me again

I am not my body
I am somebody
I am not my body
I am somebody

    Song Meaning“Somebody” explores the idea of female sexuality a step further and places it implicitly with the individual. Existence in a female body is not consent; makeup is not consent; clothing is not consent; making out with someone is not (necessarily) consent. “Somebody” is a response to the outpouring of pain, strength and solidarity during The Slut Walk in Reykjavik summer before last, the need for this dialogue globally was enforced during the resurfacing of the #metoo campaign last October. “Somebody” is a call for solidarity and for changes in the fabric of our society."
