If Today Was Your Last Day

Friday, September 11, 2009

Earlier this summer I was introduced to some of my boys' music. I have since become a HUGE Nickelback fan. These lyrics are a perfect example of why. And they just happen to be appropriate for this date in history.

If Today Was Your Last Day
Songwriters: Kroeger, Chad;

My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day's a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride

If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last
Leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you had, if today was your last day?
What if, what if, if today was your last day?

Against the grain should be a way of life
What's worth the price is always worth the fight
Every second counts 'cause there's no second try
So live like you're never living twice
Don't take the free ride in your own life

If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you had?

And would you call those friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories?
Would you forgive your enemies?
And would you find that one you're dreaming of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you'd finally fall in love if today was your last day?

If today was your last day
Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
You know it's never too late to shoot for the stars
Regardless of who you are

So do whatever it takes
'Cause you can't rewind a moment in this life
Let nothing stand in your way
'Cause the hands of time are never on your side

If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you had?

And would you call those friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories?
Would you forgive your enemies?
And would you find that one you're dreaming of
Swear up and down to God above
That you'd finally fall in love if today was your last day?

    I love, love, love this song. It's on my MP3 and I lose myself in it when I'm running. Especially "What's worth the price is always worth the fight". Running isn't easy but it takes me where I want to go on so many levels and THAT is definitely worth the fight.

    I turned 50 this month and I realized that life is too short to not be doing things that make me happy. I don't waste a minute on negative things that don't matter anyway. Thanks for posting this.

    The older I have gotten the less I believe in any religion and that this is IT, so I sure do enjoy each day and appreciate my life. I realize u take nothing with u so I don't care about buying more STUFF. I understand why my father had the attitude he did about my having more than 2 pair of shoes and worrying about what other kids thought at school. Heavens, I never see any of those people and at that time I thought they were all so important. LOL

    These lyrics are inspiring and thought-provoking.

    I have been on a little anger-party due to some work issues, but time to put those aside until I have to deal with them and enjoy today for what it is....

    Thank you SO MUCH for sharing these lyrics...have a fantastic day fishing and hiking!
