Here’s my eighth entry for the never give up songs series, Live Like You Were Dying (Tim McGraw). Hope you enjoy it!

Live Like You Were Dying – Tim McGraw

He said I was in my early forties
With a lot of life before me
When a moment came that stopped me on a dime
I spent most of the next days
Looking at the x-rays
Talking about the options, talking ’bout sweet time

And I asked him when it sank in
That this might really be the real end
How’s it hit cha get that kind of news
Man, what’d you do (he said)

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 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
I became a friend a friend would like to have
And all ‘a sudden going fishin’
Wasn’t such an impostition
And I went three time 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 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’ve got eternity to think about
What you’d do with it
What did you do with it
What did I do with it
What would I do with it

I went sky divin,
N’ 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 one day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
