Something Worth Leaving Behind

I heard a really good song today from Lee Ann Womack. It’s not new to me, but I hadn’t heard it in years. It’s called “Something Worth Leaving Behind.”

With my recent struggles of finding a suitable career and feeling like I’m wasting time not making enough money, the lyrics in this song really made me think. Of al the things I want in life, what’s actually going to be worth leaving behind? What will give my life meaning?

I’m pretty sure whatever career path I end up on isn’t going to give my life meaning, or at least I can’t count on that. There must be something more that I can do to make my life more worthwhile.

Anyway. The link to the YouTube video is here. Here are the lyrics to “Something Worth Leaving Behind.”

Hey Mona Lisa, who was Leonardo?
Was he Andy Warhol?
You were Marilyn Monroe
Hey Mozart, what kind of name is Amadeus
It’s kinda like Elvis
You gotta die to be famous
I may not go down in history
I just want someone to remember me

I’ll probably never hold a brush
that paints a masterpeice
Probably never find a pen
that writes a symphony
But if I will love then I will find
That I have touched another life
And that’s something
Something worth leaving behind

Hey Midas you say you have the magic touch
That even all that shiny stuff
Someday is gonna turn to dust
Hey Jesus it must have been some Sunday morning
In a blaze of glory
We’re still tellin’ your story
I may not go down in history
I just want someone to remember me

I’ll probably never dream a dream
and watch it turn to gold
No, I’ll never lose my life
to save another soul
If I will love then I will find
That I have touched another life
And that’s something
Something worth leaving behind

Hey baby see the future that we’re building
Our love lives on in the lives of our children
And that’s something
Something worth leaving behind
