If I Die Young

By , mayville, MI
If I die young I wanna know that I had a purpose
and that somewhere in this journey something was completely worth it.
If I go before I need to I wanna know that I had something solid to cling to
and that out there is someone and maybe Ive made their day..

I don't wanna be just another face, I wanna leave a mark in this place
No, don't lemme go empty handed.
I wanna be a name to remember a person to be missed..
for all the right reasons and all the right meanings, that's my only wish.

I know that I have fallen before, but as long as I helped raise someone up
I couldn't really ask for more..
If someone believed in me as much as they claimed,
then I'll know years down the road I didn't waste my life away.

I don't wanna be just another face, I wanna leave a mark in this place
No, don't lemme go empty handed.
I wanna be a name to remember a person to be missed..
for all the right reasons and all the right meanings, that's my only wish.

life is short but his smile made me bigger,
and gave me strength to get up off my knees..
I wish someone as much happiness as I've been given. a name to remember a person to be missed..
for all the right reasons and all the right meanings, that's my only wish.
