Fingerprints

 

He bought me my first guitar

            Dried my tears, he played the part

            The needle on my compass

            He showed me what love is

 

            Now he’s gone but I won't forget

            All the lessons learned, all the times he said

Keep reaching for the stars

Even when it's hard

 

It’s my turn to change the world

 

Chorus:

I wanna leave behind my fingerprints

Don’t want to cover up the evidence

Touch a heart; touch a soul

Be remembered when I go

Yeah, I wanna leave behind

My fingerprints

 

I’ll leave my mark with a melody

My words will be my legacy

Kindness and compassion

Gonna bring it back in fashion


 

I don’t need to be a superstar

To shine a light in the dark

There’s hope inside the music

So many who could use it

 

It’s my turn to change the world

 

Bridge:

Gonna pay if forward

Gonna pass it on

Before I’m gone
