Live Like You Were Dying (revised lyrics) Lyrics - Tim McGraw

Review The Song (8)



Verse 1
He said I was in my early forties, with a lot of life before me
And one 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 times.
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 did ya do?
He said

Chorus
I went skydiving
I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chew
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I'd been denyin'
And he said some day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin'

Verse 2
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 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

Chorus
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 some day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin'

Bridge
Like tomorrow was a gift
And ya got eternity to think about what to do with it
What could you do with it
What did I do with it
What would I do with it

Skydiving
I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Blue Man Chew
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I watched an eagle as it was flyin'
And he said some day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin'

Live like you were dyin'

To live like you were dyin' x4

So very meaningful! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/26/2008

Never heard this until yesterday at a memorial service and it is such a beautiful song. It makes me cry and reevaluate my life. I guess things come to you when needed. My best and lovely friend just died a couple of days ago. Thank you!



Touches My Heart | Reviewer: midge | 9/18/2005

This song is so beautiful. I lost my sister (37) and Father (60) with in three years of each other. I hve to say that was the hardest time ever. But watching my mother greive is horrible. When I heard this song it made think of them. My sister always lived life, she no matter what lived her day to the max. With her two daughters she never had a down moment, even when she ws ill. My father is my hero, He always lived life to the fullest, he always laughed and nothing was ever to much for him to do for is family. When he was dying I aske dhim if he was afraid and his answer was no I will see your sister, that all I needed to hear, he was ok. So live life like you were dying makes me cry and smile all together, the words are so powerful and strong. You never know when yor end will come ,never regret what you have done. My two angels are watchng me abd I know my sister would be driving in her with this song as loud as could be singing like she could sing and my father the song would bring tears to his eyes thinking of my sister, but he would be singing it (he had a good voice) and would really beleive he sounded and look like Tim Mcgraw. Thank you for keeping my family alive in my eyes!!!



He Lived! He Died! | Reviewer: J.D. Durham | 9/6/2005

On Saturday, Sept. 4th, while driving in the car, my husband took my hand and sang Live Like You Were Dying to me, along with the radio. Little did he know that in less than a week, he would die while doing Hurricane Frances recovery work in Lake Wales, Florida with Christian Contractors Association. He fell from a ladder and never regained conciousness. My husband made sure that we knew he loved us every day.

The memory of him singing that song to me is very precious.




Lost my dad too... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/1/2005

This song is amazing. I lost my dad in October 2004 and he was the type of man who always lived his life as if it were his last day. He would have loved this song and he would have cried to, just like I do. By the way the video is awesome too!



Live Life to The Fullest!!!!!!!!!!!!! | Reviewer: brandee | 5/13/2005

I really love this song, it has to be my favorite ever! I really beieve this song describes me in every way because I stongly feel that you have to live each day like it is your last because you'll never know when it's going to be your time to go. This song has a lot of emotion and a good message, I can listen to it all day.



I Lost My Father | Reviewer: Meghan | 3/15/2005

I am 13, I lost My dad (only 40) in October of 2004. It was horrid. He was riding four-wheelers with his 30 year old brother-in-law, 12 year old nephew, and 9 year old son when it happened. This song makes me think everytime I hear it. I think would my dad have gotten on the four-wheeler if he knew what was going to happen? I feel sorry for my family who was there when it happen. My uncle got the fourwheeler off and went to call police, my brother ran home crying, and my 12 year old cousin Zach stayed with him and prayed. He has this cell phone he carrys around that has no service (but you can still call 911 and 411) and he called the police. Zach is my hero. He has more courage than I will ever have, to stay there and look at his uncle die, must have been the worst thing ever. That summer my family, dad, mom, sawyer(brother, Aunt Lisa (dads sister), Uncle Sam( another brother-in-law), Zach, and anna (a neice) went to Flordia on vacation and Aunt Lisa told my dad Zach thought he(daddy) was a super hero and he thought he was the best. So I wonder how Zach is handleing it?



Live like you were dying | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/9/2005

I lost my father last year and this song reminds me of how he lived every day of his life. Fortunately, he didn't know when the end was coming but the way he lived left his family with no regrets. He always knew this was a temporary gig and never forgot to live his life to the fullest. Thank you for giving me a chance to speak my mind and thanks to Tim McGraw for writing a song that brings tears to my eyes



My 2cents worth...... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/12/2004

Love, love, love it. In this day and age we need this to make us realize we are not invincible. Live for the day and moment. Read and play with your children. Make love to your spouse. Tell your parents you love them. Don't take the moment for granted.
