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

Maybe I'll write like Twain wrote
Maybe I'll paint like Van Gogh
Hear the column called "I don't know
But I'm ready to start 'cause I'll know in my heart"

I wanna' do something that matters
Say something different
Something that sets the whole world on its 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
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 its 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 its ear
I wanna' do something that matters
Say something different
Something that sets the whole world on its ear
I wanna' do something that matters
Say something different
Something that sets the whole world on its 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
Leave nothing less than something that says "I was here"
I was here
I was here
