    I'm feelin' real good 'cause it ain't over
    Right before I die I gotta live

    Live out my dreams
    So I can be what He planned for me
    Not just for me but so they can see
    Much more of Him and less of
    Right before I die I gotta

    Love my enemies, forgive the past
    And set 'em free so I can free
    Free up the things
    Every blessing God has for me
    See it's for me, not just for you
    I had to learn from what I've been through
    I can't go through that way again
    Be hurt by you that way again
    It's not the end

    I used to be afraid to die
    I used to be afraid to try
    'Cause I was too afraid of knowing
    What failing looked like
    But the sun came to give me life
    Now I feel like I can touch the sky
    I'm ready if you're ready

    Get up and live

    [Repeat: x14]
    Right now

    Get up and live

    [Repeat: x14]
    Right now

    Right before I die I gotta

    Change, change how I think
    Change how I speak I'm not the same
    So when I speak
    You don't hear the pain
    No longer weak with no one to
    Right before I die I gotta

    Become more like you
    Take up my cross
    To count the cost 'cause I was lost
    That's why I praise you
    You're the only God
    I don't know what they do

    I used to be afraid to die
    I used to be afraid to try
    'Cause I was too afraid of knowing
    What failing looked like
    But the sun came to give me life
    Now I feel like I can touch the sky
    I'm ready if you're ready

    [Repeat: x14]
    Right now

    Get up and live

    [Repeat: x14]
    Right now

    So the next time you think of me
    And you wonder where would I be
    Without each blessing that helped me to see
    Life is much more than things
    And how you live is more than how you sing
    When I die what did I really mean, I mean

    Say what now? Say what? Say what now?
    As we proceed, to give you what you need
    Somebody, anybody, everybody, scream

    I used to be afraid to die
    I used to be afraid to try
    'Cause I was too afraid of knowing
    What failing looked like
    But the sun came to give me life
    Now I feel like I can touch the sky
    I'm ready if you're ready

    [Repeat: x14]
    Right now

    Get up and live

    [Repeat: x14]
    Right now

    Let's go
    [Repeat: x 16]

    Lord have mercy
    I told you it ain't over for you
    I see you livin'
    I see you makin' it, but you all
    Right before I live I have to die
