Appearances

Overview

The version of "I Want To Be Something" that appears on "Hurley" might be the exact home recording alluded to in the 2008 section in The 4 and 5 Star Demos of Rivers Cuomo. It is unclear whether the song was re-worked in any way during the following two years.

The leaked version of the track is slightly longer and opens with Rivers saying "three-nine-four".

Lyrics

Four in the morning, and my roommate still is snoring
So I take a walk out on the boulevard
The wind above me, seems to push and pull and shove me
But it shows me all the places I could fly

I want to be something
Before I die
I feel it burning me inside
I want to be something
I don't know why
I want to know that at least I tried

I see so clearly
That the odds are stacked against me
And that nobody else believes in me at all
I'm all alone here, and I have to face my own fear
I have no choice but to keep on keeping on

I want to be something
Before I die
I feel it burning me inside
I want to be something
I don't know why
I want to know that at least I tried

And if my dreams all come true some day, true some day
I won't forget how I feel today, I feel today
I'm blown away

I want to be something
I want to be something
I want to be something
I want to be something
I want to be something
I want to be something
I want to be something
Here I am, here I am

I want to be something
Before I die
I feel it burning me inside
I want to be something
I want to feel something
I want to know that at least I tried
