I Was Here

I have a huge passion for music.  Not a day will pass where I don't listen to it... I am so moved by music, that every Sunday I post a song on my blog and discuss the relevance of its lyrics.  I've referenced these days as Sunday's lyrics... However, for this Sunday, I couldn't wait to post my song of choice. 

Once in a while you come across a song that speaks to the core of who you are and what motivates you... If you are so fortunate to find that song, hold onto it.  As a music enthusiast, I believe I might have just stumbled across that song for me,  "I Was Here" by Beyonce... I think this song best personifies me and my passion in life.  I always like to say "we should leave this world better than how we've entered it; leaving a postive imprint which burgeons,"  and this song seems to capture the essence of this and the feelings in my heart... This is my song... I Was Here!







I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of timeKnow there was something that, and something that I left behindWhen I leave this world, I'll leave no regretsLeave something to remember, so they won't forget
I was hereI lived, I lovedI was hereI did, I've done, everything that I wantedAnd it was more than I thought it would beI will leave my mark so everyone will knowI was here
I want to say I lived each day, until I dieAnd know that I meant something in, somebody's lifeThe hearts I have touched, will be the proof that I leaveThat I made a difference, and this world will see
I was hereI lived, I lovedI was hereI did, I've done, everything that I wantedAnd it was more than I thought it would beI will leave my mark so everyone will knowI was hereI lived, I lovedI was hereI did, I've done, everything that I wantedAnd it was more than I thought it would beI will leave my mark so everyone will knowI was here
I just want them to knowThat I gave my all, did my bestBrought someone to happinessLeft this world a little better just because
I was here
I was hereI lived, I lovedI was hereI did, I've done, everything that I wantedAnd it was more than I thought it would beI will leave my mark so everyone will knowI was here I was here I was hereI was hereI did, I've done,I was here
