"Legend" as written by and Tyler Joseph....
You were one of those classic ones
Traveling around this sun
You were one of those classic ones
I wish she knew you
You were one of those classic ones
Now everybody knows
You were one of those classic ones, yeah

Alright
You're a legend in my own mind
My middle name
My goodbye

You were here when I wrote this
But the masters and mixes
Will take too long to finish
To show you
I'm sorry I did not visit
Did not know how to take it
When your eyes did not know me
Like I know you

You were one of those classic ones
Traveling around this sun
You were one of those classic ones
I wish she knew you (I wish she knew you)
You were one of those classic ones
Now everybody knows (wish she knew you)
You were one of those classic ones, yeah

Alright
You're a legend in my own mind
My middle name
My goodbye (goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)
(Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)

Alright
You're a legend in my own mind
My middle name
My goodbye

My goodbye, I, I, I
My goodbye
Then the day that it happened
I recorded this last bit
I look forward to having
A lunch with you again

    My Interpretation"You were here when I wrote this
    But the masters and mixes
    Will take too long to finish
    To show you
    I'm sorry I did not visit
    Did not know how to take it
    When your eyes did not know me
    Like I know you"

    Tyler knew his grandfather would pass before this song would get produced, and he is sorry for not visiting him because also fell victim to alzheimer's, making him unable to recognize Tyler.

    "Then the day that it happened
    I recorded this last bit
    I look forward to having
    A lunch with you again"

    The day he passed, it is sad to even imagine this, Tyler recorded this section of the song just so he could remark how, maybe in heaven, they'll meet each other again and have lunch.

    Song MeaningI believe it’s about a final goodbye to his grandfather. When he says “My middle name my good bye” he was his middle name is his grandfathers first name.
