What will they say when I'm gone
In words that are written in stone?
Under my name, what will they claim about me?

Oh, I want to leave a legacy to be remembered
More than just a memory that fades away
Because we only, we only get one life

Free me, my hands are tied, I'm so tired of wasting time
These endless inventions steal my attention from real life
And when it's done, when it's over

Oh, I want to leave a legacy to be remembered
More than just a memory that fades away
Because we only, we only get one life

And will the world see Christ
When they look at my life?
Oh, will the world see?

Oh, come on, give me, give me, give me real life
And no more, no more, no more wasting time
Because we only, we only get just one life

Oh, I want to leave a legacy to be remembered
More than just a memory that fades away
Because we only, we only
Because we only, we only get one life

There's the answer, there's the answer
'Cause we only, yeah, we only
