Live Like You Were Dying Lyrics - Tim McGraw

Review The Song (7)



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 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


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

Morons! Live like you're ALIVE. | Reviewer: Paul | 12/13/12

All I can say, And I think this is what Tim is getting at, Don't wait 'til yer dyin to start living. I'm currently at deaths door and find the song a bit infantile. I'm not climbing any mountains other that the slopes that have become the stairs to my bedroom. I'm stubborn but I doubt I'll climb them much longer. I'm glad I lived life fully while I could. In the event that I recover, I'll try to carry on that way. Don't wait 'til you get smacked in the face with the fact that you screwed your life up to change the way you live it.

I saw Tim&Faith live last year in Philly, and it was AMAZING. When Tim was singing this song, there was complete silence in the audience, as if it were a sign of respect, it gave me chills - especially when he sang the final "live like you were dying". He can sure hold that note! Gotta love this songg!!!

point giver | Reviewer: Tanner | 7/17/07

This song actually gives points that life can take any turn depending on what you do. It could probably help people understand life.
