Song van Tim Mcgraw: Live Like You Were Dying

Tim Mcgraw: Live Like You Were Dying

He said I was in my early fourties
with a lot of life before me
when a moment came that stopped me on a dime
I spent most of the next days lookin’ at the x-rays
and talkin’ ’bout the options
and talkin’ bout sweet time
I asked him when it sank in and
this might be the really real end
I said how’s it hit ya
when you get that kinda news?
Man what’d ya do?
and he said 

CHORUS
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 I 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
and I became a friend
a friend would like to have
And all ‘a sudden going 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

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 I 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 got eternity
to think about what’d you do with it.
what did you do with it.
what did I do with it?
what would I do with it?

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 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 X 5
Whoo!
