Live like you were dying

by Tim McGraw


He said: "I was in my early forties,
"With a lot of life before me,
"An´ a moment came that stopped me on a dime.
"I spent most of the next days,
"Looking at the x-rays,
"An´ talking ´bout the options an´ talkin´ ´bout sweet time."
I asked him when it sank in,
That this might really be the real end?
How´s it hit you when you get that kind of news?
Man whatcha do?

An´ he said: "I went sky diving, I went rocky mountain climbing,
"I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu.
"And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter,
"And I gave forgiveness I´d been denying."
An´ he said: "Some day, I hope you get the chance,
"To live like you were dyin´."

He said "I was finally the husband,
"That most the time I wasn´t.
"An´ I became a friend a friend would like to have.
"And all of a sudden goin´ fishin´,
"Wasn´t such an imposition,
"And I went three times that year I lost my Dad.
"Well, I finally read the Good Book,
"And I took a good long hard look,
"At what I´d do if I could do it all again,
"And then:

"I went sky diving, I went rocky mountain climbing,
"I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu.
"And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter,
"And I gave forgiveness I´d been denying."
An´ he said: "Some day, I hope you get the chance,
"To live like you were dyin´."

Like tomorrow was a gift,
And you got eternity,
To think about what you´d do with it.
An´ what did you do with it?
An´ what can I do with it?
An´ what would I do with it?

"Sky diving, I went rocky mountain climbing,
"I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu.
"And then I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter,
"And I watched Blue Eagle as it was flyin´."
An´ he said: "Some day, I hope you get the chance,
"To live like you were dyin´."

"To live like you were dyin´."
"To live like you were dyin´."
"To live like you were dyin´."
"To live like you were dyin´."
