lyrics

VERSE 1
Once upon a time
A dark, dreamless night
Covered a kingdom filled with the sound of its human cry
Then one came along
With a different song
And many were touched by the beautiful sound of his melody
Then one multiplied
And growing in size
The song, now an anthem, had filled the land with great harmony

Could this be said of you
Could it be said of me

CHORUS
What will we leave behind
What story will be read of our lives
Will it be marked in the pages of time
That the world is better
Because of what we leave behind

VERSE 2
Just look around
At where we are now
Will posterity thank us or blame us for what we are passing on
There's a new song to sing
A new story to read
Will we be the ones with courage enough
To leave this world better than when we arrived

CHORUS
What will we leave behind
What story will be read of our lives
Will it be marked in the pages of time
That the world is better
Because of what we leave behind
What story will be told of our lives
Will it be marked in the pages of time
That the world is better, so much better
Because of what we leave behind
What will we leave behind

Life, love, and happiness
A soul spent with no regrets
Life, love, and happiness
Leavin' with no regrets

What will we leave behind (repeat)
