Carole King

Carole King - Legacy

rate me

You used to be as a child

Full of hope and wonder

Hey, now, do you remember those days

Your mind was free and running wild

Now the sound of thunder

Has got you trapped in a corner hiding out

You're running in a rat maze

You better think about the legacy

That you want to leave behind

It's all getting burnt-out, used-up

Bought and sold to the bottom line

That ain't the way it's gotta be

You can leave a better world than you find

You can look down, turn aside, run away

But you can't put it out of your mind

'Cause it's your legacy

Don't it make your heart bleed

Passing through the meadowland

Wheel of fortune jackpot is what it looks like

That's okay, go on, run your motor at high speed

Rev it up to five grand

Shades on, top down

But as you barrel down the turnpike

You better think about the legacy

That you're gonna leave behind

Things are getting wasted out of hand

People stealing each other blind

Hey, that ain't the way it oughta be

You can leave a better world than you find

You can look down, turn around, run away

But you can't put it out of your mind

'Cause it's your legacy

It isn't easy when you think your voice

Doesn't matter to anyone

Maybe you believe there's nothing you can do

But if you just do nothing, you've made a choice

To perpetuate the destruction

Why don't you stand up, dig in

When it all comes down, it's gotta begin with you

It's you

It's your legacy

Baby, whatcha gonna do about it

You better think about the legacy

That you want to leave behind

Things are getting wasted, out-of-hand, burnt-out, used-up

Sold to the bottom line

Hey, that ain't the way it's gotta be

Oh, don't you want to leave a better world than you find

You can look down, turn aside, run away and hide

But you can't put it out of your mind

'Cause it's your legacy

Oh, your legacy

Look here

It's gotta start somewhere, Jack

If you don't go forward, you're gonna go back

Hey, you better get a plan of attack

'Cause that's the only way that you're gonna keep track

Of your legacy
