Beyoncé – I Was Here lyrics

I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time
Know there was something that
Meant something that I left behind
When I leave this world,
I'll leave no regrets
Leave something to remember,
So they won't forget

I was here...
I lived, I loved
I was here...
I did, I've done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here...

I want to say I lived each day,
Until I die
And know that I meant something in somebody's life
The hearts I have touched,
Will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference
And this world will see

I was here...
I lived, I loved
I was here...
I did, I've done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here...
I lived, I loved
I was here...
I did, I've done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here...

I just want them to know
That I gave my all,
Did my best
Brought someone some happiness
Left this world a little better just because...
I was here...

I was here...
I lived, I loved
I was here...
I did, I've done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I wanna leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here...

(I lived, I loved)
(I did, I've done)
(I lived, I loved)
(I did, I've done)
I was here...

    For anybody who would say 'i was here', maybe they mean to tell that they already have fulfilled their duty as a person. Meaning differ in every situation. For a struggling friend, telling her 'i was here' means that she's not alone. For those who take their love ones for granted, 'i was here' might mean that loved ones were all the way there for us, however, we were very busy doing other things that when they're gone, we could not blame them and all that we can do is feel sorry for ourself.

    I was here, the best rnb I've ever heard. It's not about relationships and their ups and downs, but it's about ife in general, about an individual(male/female). It's about doing to someone, something anythng just to make a difference, letting everyone know that you once made a diffrence, live no bad news no rumours but have made some sad face turn into a smiley, give hope to those who've lost hope. Make the world a batter place. Wow! Nice beyonce I'm inlove.

    I was here to live a life of meaningful moments and events. To be successful and look back on my achievements. To be who I am. To do the best by my family, friends, and I. To love and be loved. And most importantly enjoy life to the fullest. To appriceate everything the creator blessed me with and everything I'm thankful for. So when I die I could smile at the life I had and have no regrets. That is my meaning to I was here.

    This song is so touching. I absolutely fell in love with this song. I'm using two of her songs for my quinceanera prevideo that will be shown to everyone at the reception, the two songs are halo & I was here, beyonce is pretty much one of the few real artists out there, and that's why I look up to her so much. -irene spirit.

    It is a song that shows that we can make a difference no matter who we are. By smiling, by helping others. We affect everyone around us. It shows us that we are not alone in this world. We are one family and no matter what you think, we always will be. Everyone has their doubts about why we're here. Don't just live for yourself, make a difference and show that in fact, 'i was here. '
