Beyoncé, “I was here (United Nations World Humanitarian Day Performance)”

I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time / Know there was something that meant something that I left behind / When I’ll leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets / Leave something to remember, so they won’t forget

I was here / I lived, I loved / I was here / I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted / And it was more than I thought it would be / I will leave my mark so everyone will know / I was here

I want to say I lived each day, until I die / And know that I meant something in somebody’s life / The hearts I have touched, will be the proof that I leave / That I made a difference, and this world will see / I was here / I lived, I loved / I was here / I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted / And it was more than I thought it would be / I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here / I lived, I loved / I was here / I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted / And it was more than I thought it would be / I will leave my mark so everyone will know / I was here / I just want them to know / That I gave my all, did my best / Brought someone some happiness / Left this world a little better just because / I was here

I was here / I lived, I loved / I was here / I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted / And it was more than I thought it would be / I will leave my mark so everyone will know / I was here / I lived / I was here / I did / I was here / I lived / I was here / I did / I was here
