Live like you were dying

by Shell
(Canada)

A very close family member found out he was dying of cancer and there was no hope in sight. His family made it a quest to fulfill all of the dreams he wanted to do be done before he would leave this world and go on to a better place.


It didn't matter what it was the man had the dreams he held dear brought to him. It just makes me think about the importance of dreams that people have and that others are able to help make them come true.

Tim McGraw-Live like you were dying

by Stacey D.
(Nebraska)

Recently a dear friend named Jay found out he had a tumor on his brain, they did surgery and removed it but it wasn't cancerous, although they did find out he had cancer, Yesterday June 12th, 2008 he passed on after a short but painful battle with cancer. This song says it all.




Lyrics:
Verse 1
He said I was in my early forties, with a lot of life before me
And one moment came that stopped me on a dime
I spent most of the next days, looking at the x-rays
Talking bout' the options and talking bout' sweet times.
I asked him when it sank in, that this might really be the real end
How's it hit 'cha when you get that kind of news?
Man what did ya do?
He said

Chorus
I went skydiving
I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I'd been denyin'
And he said some day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin'

Verse 2
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 of a sudden goin' 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

Chorus
I went skydiving
I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Shu
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I'd been denyin'
And he said some day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin'

Bridge
Like tomorrow was the end
And ya got eternity to think about what to do with it
What should you do with it
What can I do with it
What would I do with it

Skydiving
I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu
And man I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I watched an eagle as it was flyin'
And he said some day I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin'

To live like you were dyin' (4x)
