I Was Here – Beyoncé Knowles

(arte de Bill Cannon)

“I Was Here” foi escrita por Diane Warren especialmente para Beyoncé Knowles. A canção foi lançada em 2011 com todos os lucros destinados para o Dia Mundial da Ajuda Humanitária, World Humanitarian Day, uma campanha global para chamar a atenção e incentivar o trabalho humanitário em todo o mundo, celebrado no dia 19 de agosto. A data foi escolhida pela ONU em memória ao bombardeio ao prédio da instituição em Bagdá, Iraque, ocorrido em 19 de agosto de 2003, cujo atentado fez 22 vítimas fatais, entre elas, o embaixador brasileiro Sérgio Vieira de Mello.

“Eu quero deixar minhas pegadas nas areias do tempo. Eu só quero que eles saibam que eu dei tudo de mim, fiz o meu melhor. Trouxe felicidade a alguém. Deixei este mundo um pouco melhor só porque estive aqui”, diz a letra.

Letra de I was Here:

I want to leave my footprints
On the sands of time
Know there was something that
And something that I left behind
When I leave this world
I’ll leave no regrets
Leave something to remember
So they won’t forget

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

I want to say I’ll live each day
Until I die
And know that I had something
In somebody’s life
The hearts that I have touched
Will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference
And this world will see

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

I just want them to know
That I gave my all
Did my best
Brought someone to happiness
Left this world a little better
Just because
I was here

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I wanna leave my mark so everyone will know

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done
I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done
I was here
