If Every Second Counts on a Clock That's Ticking

3_23_10.jpgIt's a musical Tuesday. This is one that keeps getting stuck in my head, and the meaning of the words isn't lost on me. I'm sure most of us get it. The question that still remains is this: "what will I do with this knowledge?" I didn't want to understand this. I'd have rather lived to be much older without the dark knowledge of the shortness of our lives. But I didn't. I learned it earlier than some. What will I do with this knowledge? I don't know yet, what I do know is that I try to live in the moment. It's challenging for me. I'm getting better at it. I promise to keep trying.

 

 

 

Sometimes we fall down, can't get back up
We're hiding behind skin that's too tough
How come we don't say I love you enough
Til it's too late, it's not too late

Our hearts are hungry for a food that won't come
And we could make a feast from these crumbs
And we're all staring down the barrel of a gun
So if your life flashed before you, what would you wish you would've done?

Yeah, we gotta start looking at the hands of the time we've been given
If this is all we got, then we gotta start thinking
If every second counts on a clock that's ticking
Gotta live like we're dying

We only got 86,400 seconds in a day to
Turn it all around or to throw it all away
We gotta tell them that we love them while we got the chance to say
Gotta live like we're dying

And if your plane fell out of the skies
Who would you call with your last goodbye?
Should be so careful who we left out of our lives
And when we long for absolution, there will be no one on the line

Yeah, we gotta start looking at the hands of the time we've been given
If this is all we got, then we gotta start thinking
If every second counts on a clock that's ticking
Gotta live like we're dying

You never know a good thing til it's gone
You never see a crash til it's head on
Why do we think we're right when we're dead wrong?
You never know a good thing til it's gone

We only got 86,400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or to throw it all away
We gotta tell em that we love em while got the chance to say
Gotta live like we're dying.
