Matt Maeson - Legacy Lyrics




I saw, and I swear
An old man with a dead-lock stare
And he said to me
You're too old to be pretending

But you don't know me, I ain't got no legacy
And he said to me, it's not too late to pick up the pieces
Woo, woo
Ye-a-ah
Woo, woo

I said that I smoke
And been known to drink my share
You're young, you're drunk
He said with a stone-cold glare

But you don't know me, I ain't got no legacy
And he said to me, it's not too late to pick up the pieces
Woo, woo
Ye-a-ah
Woo, woo

You're walking in the shadows
Walking in the shadows of your fear
You're headed for the gallows
Sin around your throat is always near
So before I leave, just know
Just know
Oh, before I leave, just know
Just know
Before I leave, just know
Just know
Oh, before I leave, just know
Just know
It's not too late to pick up the pieces

Woo, woo
Ye-a-ah
Woo, woo

Oh, now leave

    Yes you made this song official! I wasn't sure if you left it behind. I remember watching a video of you playing this song awhile back in what looked like a city/town at night with your guitar and I remember thinking how great this song and your voice is and wondering if there was a story behind it. Good job and thank you💛 ~and if you've read this far an acoustic version of this would be amazing!

    Legacy Lyrics

    Well I saw and I swear
    An old man with a dead locked stare
    And he said to me
    You’re to old to be pretending
    But you don’t know me
    I ain’t got no legacy
    And he said to me
    It’s not too late to pick up the pieces

    So I said that I smoke
    And been known to drink my share
    You’re young and you’re drunk
    He said with a stone cold glare
    But you don’t know me
    I ain’t got no legacy
    And he said to me
    It’s not too late to pick up the pieces

    you’re walking in the shadows of your fear
    And you’re headed for the gallows
    Sin around your throat
    And no ones near
    So before I leave just know
    It’s not too late to pick up the pieces

    I ain’t got no legacy

    IAmMe

    How to stop people from messing up the lyrics.
