"I WANT TO BE REMEMBERED"

Verse 1
I was just a young guy with my whole life ahead of me,
Everyone around was plotting out their lives, making plans for what's to be.
“There's a crossroad ahead,” Dad said. “Which way you gonna go?”
“I can't tell you, Dad, right off hand, but there's one thing that I know.

Chorus 1
I want to be remembered when I'm gone, -
For the life I've shared, for the love passed on.
Easy life, comfy home and such: I might gain it, but I ain't gained much.
I want to live on in the lives I've touched,
That's how I want to be remembered when I'm gone. --

Verse 2
I've got my hopes and I've got my dreams, things I wish could come true.
I've got a list of things as well that I wish I could do.
But I'm just not satisfied trying to put a smile on my own face.
It seems to me there's more to it, and I've got to find my place.

Chorus 2
I want to be remembered when I'm gone, [I wanna be remembered.]
For the life I've shared, for the love passed on.
I might never, ever make me a name; find me a place in some hall of fame.
I don't care 'cause that's not how I,
I want to be remembered when I'm gone. --

Bridge
It's hard to say how life's gonna turn out, no one really knows but God above.
I've seen something of life and I've found out that the reason I'm here is to love.

Chorus 3
I want to be remembered when I'm gone, [I wanna be, I wanna be.]
For the life I've shared, for the love passed on.
Easy life, comfy home and such: I might gain it, but I ain't gained much,
I want to live on in the lives I've touched,
That's how I want to be remembered when I'm gone.

That's how I want to be remembered when I'm gone.
Are you gonna be remembered when you're gone?
Are you gonna be, are you gonna be,
Are you gonna be remembered when you're gone?
I wanna be, I wanna be, I wanna be remembered.
I wanna be remembered when I'm gone.
I wanna be remembered.
I wanna be, I wanna be, I wanna be remembered.
I wanna be, I wanna be, I wanna be remembered.
