Critical receptionEdit

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 performanceEdit

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

Music videoEdit

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.

Lyrics Edit

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

(Chorus)
And I say
Oh!
We're gonna let it show!
We're gonna just let go of everything
Holding 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)
Somebody, yeah (Somebody)
Somehow
Someday
Someway
Somebody

I'm so tired
Of being invisible
But I feel it, yeah
Like a fire below the surface
Trying to set me free
Burning inside of me
'Cause we're standing on the edge now
It's a long way down

(Chorus)
But I say
Oh!
We're gonna let it show!
We're gonna just let go of everything
Holding 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)
Somebody, yeah (Somebody)
Somehow
Someday
Someway
Somebody

We will walk out of this darkness
Feel the spotlight glowing like a yellow sun
Oh
And then we fought, we fought together
'Til we get back up and we will rise as one
Oh

(Chorus)
Oh!
We're gonna let it show!
We're gonna just let go of everything
Holding 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)
Somebody, yeah (Somebody)
Somehow
Someday
Someway
Somebody
Somebody
Ooh, oh
