Kristin Chenoweth – I Was Here lyrics

You will notice me
I'll be leaving my mark
Like initials carved in an old oak tree
Just wait and see

Maybe I'll write like Twain wrote
Maybe I'll paint like Van Gogh
Cure the common cold, I don't know
But I'm ready to start cause I know in my heart

I wanna do something that matters
Say something different
Something that sets the whole world on it's ear
I wanna do something better
With the time I was given
I wanna try to touch a few hearts in this life
Leave nothing less than something that says
I was here

I will prove you wrong
If you think I'm all talk, you're in for a shock
Cause this dream's too strong
And before too long

Maybe I'll compose symphonies
Maybe I'll fight for world peace
Cause I know it's my destiny
Transcribed by
To leave more than a trace of myself in this place

I wanna do something that matters
Say something different
Something that sets the whole world on it's ear
I wanna do something better
With the time I was given
I wanna try to touch a few hearts in this life
Leave nothing less than something that says
I was here

I wanna do something that matters
Say something different
Something that sets the whole world on it's ear
(I wanna do something that matters
Say something different
Something that sets the whole world on it's ear)

I wanna do something that matters
Say something different
Something that sets the whole world on it's ear
I wanna do something better
With the time I was given
I know that I will do more than just pass through this life
And leave nothing less than something that says
I was here
I was here
I was here

    A person sometimes tries to go that extra mile to help someone else, or to give something of themselves that will last the test of time itself. It doesn't have to be of great monetary value. It could be maybe handing down written family history to a younger relative. The history filled with stories and sayings of their ancestors past. Making a difference in a persons life is not only beneficial to the receiver but also the giver. A truly beautiful song to inspire people to make a difference.
