"Who Did You Think I Was" was the first single released by blues-rock group John Mayer Trio from their first album, Try!. As it is from a live album, the single itself is a live recording. Speculation that Mayer was moving away from his known field of sensitive acoustic pop rock into blues was confirmed by the release of this single, being that it's a moderately heavy blues-rock song. Furthermore, the line from the first verse, "Got a brand new blues that I can't explain", indicates Mayer exploring blues unlike before. Wikipedia

Song Lyrics

I got half a smile and zero shame
I got a reflection with a different name
I got a brand new blues that I can`t explain
Who did you think I was?

Every mornin` when the day begins
I make up my mind and change it back again
I am a shifter of the shape I`m in
Who did you think I was?

You got my number but I always knew the score
Who did you think I was?

Am I the one who plays the quiet songs?
Is he the one who turns the ladies on?
Will I keep shinin` `til my light is gone?
Who did you think I was?

You got my number but I always knew the score
Who did you think I was?

Here`s a line that you won`t understand
I`m half of a boy but I`m twice the man
Carry the weight of the world in the palm of my hand
Who did you think I was?
Who did you think I was?
