Live Like You Were Dying


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
and I spent most of the next days
looking at the x-rays
Talking bout the options
and talking 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 kinda news
man what'd you do

and he said

I went sky diving
I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named fumanchu
and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
and I gave forgiveness I'd been denying
and he said someday 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
and I became a friend a friend would like to have
and all the sudden going fishin
wasnt 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 2.7 seconds on a bull named fumanchu
and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
and I gave forgiveness I'd been denying
and he said someday
I hope you get the chance
to live like you were dying.

Like tomorrow was a gift and
you got eternity to think about

what'd you do with it what did you do with it
what did I do with it
what would I do with it?

Sky diving
I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named fumanchu
and then I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
and I watched an eagle as it was flying
and he said someday
I hope you get the chance

to live like you were dying.
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
