Capo on 3 or 4 depending on your range 
Sometimes I get all caught up in these frustrations, 
And all my mama?s good raising, just disappears, 
I forget how far and dark and deep a careless word can fly 
I hurt the ones I hold so dear, 
Sometimes between the ruts and the rain and the train wrecks and the pay cheques, 
I get to feeling so damn small, 
And I forget that when it's all said and done  
I wanna be that someone, 
Who steps up and spray paints on the wall, 
I was here, I'm alive, I did more than survive 
Changed a life, Touched a heart, 
Look a stand, left a mark 
Made the most out of all of my years 
You won?t need to see my name carved on a head stone to know I was here 
Between the fancy jeans the hot wings and the big screens, 
You?d think that all I?d ever need was at a shopping mall 
But I forget the most important things in this life, 
Hey yeah, Just might not be things at all, 
So I'm gunna stop to thank a few of my earth bound angels  
For picking me up off the ground, 
I'm gunna stop worrying bout a buck or two 
And start thinkin bout what?ll fill up all them pews  
The day they lay me down 
I was here, I'm alive, I did more than survive 
Changed a life, Touched a heart, 
Look a stand, left a mark 
Made the most out of all of my years 
You won?t need to see my name carved on a head stone to know I was here 
 Nahnahnana Nahnahnana Nahnahnana 
Ooohhh I was here, I'm alive, I did more than survive 
Changed a life, Touched a heart, 
Look a stand, left a mark 
Made the most out of all of my years 
You won?t need to see my name carved on a head stone to know I was here
