Live Like You Were Dying

It has been a weekend of education, I know nothing of country music… after watching a few videos I now understand what the big deal is… sorry I meant listening.  Hey watch the video and YOU tell me what you think.  I love this song… so true to my heart these words.

He said I was in my early forties
With a lot of life before me
When a moment came that stopped me on a dime
I spent most of the next days
Looking at the x-rays
Talking about the options, talking ’bout sweet time

And I asked him when it sank in
That this might really be the real end
How’s it hit ya’ get that kind of news
Man, what’d you do (he said)

I went sky diving
I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds
On a bull named FuManChu. And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
And gave forgiveness I’d been denying
And he said some day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dying

He said I was finally the husband
That most the time I wasn’t
I became a friend a friend would like to have
And all ‘a sudden going fishin’
Wasn’t such an impostition
And I went three time that year I lost my dad

And 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 Flew Man Chu
And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
And gave forgiveness I’d been denying
And he said some day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dying

Like tomorrow was a gift
And you’ve got eternity to think about
What you’d do with it
What did you do with it
What did I do with it
What would I do with it

sky divin,
n’ I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds
On a bull named FumanChu
And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
And I watched an eagle as it was flying
And he said some day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
