Rascal Flatts When The Sand Runs Out Lyrics

Last updated: 04/17/2010 11:00:00 AM

I spent the morning at an old friend's grave
Flowers and Amazing Grace, he was a good man
He spent his whole life spinnin' his wheels
Never knowin' how the real thing feels
He never took a chance or took the time to dance
And I stood there thinking as I said goodbye
Today is the first day of the rest of my life

I'm gonna stop lookin' back and start movin' on
And learn how to face my fears
Love with all of my heart, make my mark
I wanna leave something here

Go out on a ledge, with out any net
That's what I'm gonna be about
Yeah I wanna be runnin'
When the sand runs out

'Cause people do it everyday
Promise themselves they're gonna change
I've been there, but I'm changin' from the inside out

That was then and this is now
I'm a new man, yeah, I'm a brand new man
And when they carve my stone they'll write these words
"Here lies a man who lived life for all that its worth"

And as the cold wind blows across the graveyard
I think I hear the voice of my old friend whisper in my ear

I'm gonna stop lookin' back and start movin' on
Learn how to face my fears
Love with all of my heart, make my mark
I wanna leave something here

Go out on a ledge, with out any net
That's what I'm gonna be about
Yeah I wanna be runnin'
When the sand runs out

Make's you wanna live life | Reviewer: Regis Lovato | 1/21/08

I listened to this song after I visited my grandfather's grave, and it inspired me to do what I enjoy, to live the life I have, to do things I wouldn't do, especially, since the circumstances of the timing in which I listened to this song corrisponded to the emotions in which I was experiencing at that moment. One of Rascal Flatts' greatest works.
Listen to it!

I find this song to be truelly inspirational. It just makes you want to go out and live life as it should be lived. With no regrets.
