I was watching an amazing video on YouTube- fearlessummer’s ‘How will you be remembered?’ when I had the idea of putting the quote against ‘we are young’, I tried it and it sounded really good. And, as I am a terrible film maker, I went the easy way and decided to do this-
So if you play the two together it sounds cool!
I don’t own either of these videos.

Said & Done
How often do you look back?
Really reflect on what you’ve done?
The insignificance of it all;
the pointless arguments,
Do you ever wonder how you’ll be remembered?
Or if what you’ve done
And what you’re doing means anything at all.
What will your songs sound like when you’re dead and gone?
Will tears fall when the last note is sung?
How will your story be told?
Will your words leave a bitter taste in their mouths?
Will they even remember you at all?
The concept is rather simple.
Most know what it means to be civil;
But there truly is a fine line between sweet and sour.
Give too much of yourself away and you’ll be all used up.
Not enough and no one will be around to share this with.
So what is it that motivates us?
To be better, gentler, more refined.
I like to think it’s those close to us,
Close to the heart and soul.
Those who carried you to the car after you puked on their shoes.
Those who take the blame for breaking the window,
When it was you who cast the stone.
Those who will be by your side when reality knocks on your door,
both good and bad.
Those whose stories you’ll share with your kids and grandkids
And their kids and their grandkids,
In hopes to somehow keep us all alive.
Chivalry, decency, kindness,
Compassion, desire, strength.
How will you be remembered?
