Lyrics

What Will You Leave Behind

What will you leave behind? Tell me what they’ll find

Can a picture taste your lips of summer wine?

What will you leave behind, the pure essence of your mind

Tell me will Heaven ever glow more than your smile?

 

Footprints in the sand,

Dust in the wind, bones in the land

Rolling round in laughter,

’Bout some card-playing disaster

Can you remember the taste of your first kiss?

 

What will you leave behind? Tell me what they’ll find

Can a picture taste your lips of summer wine?

What will you leave behind, the pure essence of your mind

Tell me will Heaven ever glow more than your smile?

 

Who has walked that road before, kicked that stone or slammed that door?

Who has seen the sky so clear, that sunset where we drank cold beer?

Can you remember the smell of your baby’s skin?

 

History books only tell so much, a video you cannot touch

Photographs may fade with time, our memories a precious diamond

Can you remember the day you went away?

 

What will you leave behind? Tell me what they’ll find

Can a picture taste your lips of summer wine?

What will you leave behind, the pure essence of your mind

Tell me will Heaven ever glow more than your smile?

 

Tell me will Heaven ever glow more than your smile?
