​How Do You Want To Be Remembered

This song is by MAGIC! and appears on the album Don't Kill the Magic (2014).

How do you want to be remembered?
As a sinner or a saint, as a hero or a villain?
Think about the steps you take
How do you want to be remembered
When they're standing at your grave?
On your tombstone, what is written?
Think about the steps you take

All my life I've been searching for the answers
How did I lose so much of the things that really matter?
Is there no paradise, 'cause I feel no joy or laughter
Seems everything I touch only turns into disaster
So I ask myself...

How do you want to be remembered?
As a sinner or a saint, as a hero or a villain?
Think about the steps you take
How do you want to be remembered
When your children come to aid
And they need some inspiration?
Think about the steps you take

Do I reach for love only when she says she's leaving?
Do I pray above only when I feel I'm needing?
See I can't sleep at night, when sheep turn into demons
There's no alibi when the jury knows your secret
So I ask myself...

How do you want to be remembered?
As a sinner or a saint, as a hero or a villain?
Think about the steps you take
How do you want to be remembered
When your children come to aid
And they need some inspiration?
Think about the steps you take

Cause on the day when you face judgement
You better have your story straight
Were you a good friend and a husband
To the wife that gives you love, love, love
You love, love, love, oh

How do you want to be remembered?
As a sinner or a saint, as a hero or a villain?
Think about the steps you take
How do you want to be remembered
When they're standing at your grave?
On your tombstone, what is written?
Think about the steps you take

How do you want to be remembered?
How do you want to be remembered?
Think about the steps you take
How do you want to be remembered?
How do you want to be remembered?
