Live Like You Were Dying

 

By Tim McGraw

 

 

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 '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 'cha when you get that kind of news?
Man, what'd ya do?" He said

"I went skydiving, 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 denyin'"

And he said, "Someday 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
And 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, 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 skydiving, 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 denyin'"

And he said, "Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin'"

"Skydiving, 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 watched an eagle as it was flyin'"

And he said, "Someday 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'
