How They Remember You

Album: How They Remember You (2020)
  • Sprayed my name on a water tower
    Carved it in an old cottonwood tree
    Signed a bunch of high school yearbooks
    So they wouldn't forget about me

    It wasn't 'til I saw my daddy's name in stone I knew
    It ain't a question of if they will
    It's how they remember you

    Did you stand or did you fall?
    Build a bridge or build a wall?
    Hide your love or give it all?
    What did you do? What did you do?
    Did you make 'em laugh or make 'em cry?
    Did you quit or did you try?
    Live your dreams or let 'em die?
    What did you choose? What did you choose?
    When it all comes down
    It ain't if, it's how they remember you

    When you're down to your last dollar
    Will you give or will you take?
    When the stiff wind blows the hardest
    Will you bend or will you break? (Will you break?)

    You're gonna leave a legacy, no matter what you do
    It ain't a question of if they will
    It's how they remember you

    Did you stand or did you fall?
    Build a bridge or build a wall?
    Hide your love or give it all?
    What did you do? What did you do?
    Did you make 'em laugh or make 'em cry?
    Did you quit or did you try?
    Live your dreams or let 'em die?
    What did you choose? What did you choose?
    When it all comes down
    It ain't if, it's how they remember you

    Did you make 'em laugh or make 'em cry?
    Did you quit or did you try?
    Live your dreams or let 'em die?
    What did you choose? (Did you choose?)
    Oh, when it all comes down
    It ain't if, it's how they remember you

    (How they, how they remember you)
    (How they, how they remember you)
    (How they, how they remember you) how they remember
    (How they, how they remember you)
    (How they, how they remember you) whoa
    (How they, how they remember you)
    (How they, how they remember you) how they remember
    (How they, how they remember you) how they remember you Writer/s: Marc Beeson, Josh Osborne, James Allen Shamblin
