If Today Was Your Last Day by Nickelback

Just a quick aside before I get this post started. I am still in the process of working through all the pictures and video I took at the inauguration of President Barack Obama & at the RMS Middle School Youth Gathering last weekend. Once I get a chance to sort through all of that & get it uploaded, I will make posts for each of them.

I do not exactly remember how I found this song, but I remember that I was attracted to the title of the song: "If Today Was Your Last Day". So when I listened to the 30 second preview of the song on iTunes, I knew I was hooked. The lyrics of this song (which are below) should be a model that everyone should follow in all of our life's.

Too many times we take the short cut to get where and/or what we want, when we really we should be taking the long & hard way. We put off way too many things until tomorrow that could and/or should be done. I think this song hits it right on the dollar.

I really suggest you check this song out. You can listen to a 30-second preview on iTunes or on Amazon.com, where you can also buy an MP3 of the song for 0.79 cents.


Lyrics of If Today Was Your Last Day by Nickelback:

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 have, 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 prize 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 have?

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 have?

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?
