"Days Go By" as written by Monty Powell and Keith Lionel Urban....
Whoa!

Oh yeah yeah

I'm changing lanes and talkin' on the phone
Drivin' way too fast.
And the interstate's jammed with gunners like me
Afraid of comin' in last.
But somewhere in the race we run,
We're coming undone

And days go by,
I can feel 'em flyin'
Like a hand out the window in the wind.
The cars go by,
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start livin' right now
'Cause days go by,
Oh and a woo-hoo

Out on the roof just the other night
I watched the world flash by,
Headlights, taillights,
Running through a river of neon signs.
But somewhere in the rush I felt,
We're losing ourselves

And days go by,
I can feel 'em flyin'
Like a hand out the window in the wind.
The cars go by,
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start livin' right now
Days go by,
Oh and a woo-hoo
Yeah the days go by
Oh and a woo-hoo

We think about tomorrow then it slips away.
Oh, yes, it does.
We talk about forever but we've only got today

And the days go by,
I can feel 'em flyin'
Like a hand out the window as the cars go by
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start livin',
You better start livin',
Better start livin' right now!

'Cause days go by,
I can feel 'em flyin'
Like a hand out the window in the wind.
The cars go by,
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start livin' right now
'Cause days go by,
Oh and a woo-hoo
Yeah these days go by
Oh and a woo-hoo

Oh!
So take 'em by the hand,
They're yours and mine.
Take 'em by the hand,
And live your life.
Take 'em by the hand,
Don't let 'em all fly by!

Come on, come on now,
Yeah!
Come on now!
Oh and a woo-hoo!
Don't you know the days go by

    General CommentI think this is probly his most meaningful song. I agree with .one.last.try. - this song makes me look back and wonder what the heck I've been doing all these years, and I'm not even 20 yet.

    General CommentThis song really hits me right now... I'm goin through the socalled quarter life crisis, looking back on the first 25 years of my life and trying to see what I've done right or wrong to get here. And realizing that what we all don't do enough of is living for right now. You never know how great today can be until you live it to the fullest.

    General Commentinteresting how it's such an upbeat song and it makes you happy, but it's about life slipping away before you know it. i do like the guitar part at the end, after 'come on now'. such a great song and it makes me think of my friend garrett.

    General CommentI love this song for two reasons: first, it actually has a deep meaning to it and second, i just love the lyrics.
    Days go by
    I can feel 'em flying
    Like a hand out the window in the wind as the cars go by
    It's all we've been given
    So you better start livin' right now
    'Cause days go by

    Being, a teenager, i have no clue what I'm to do in life, and nor should I, at least not now. But, this song has you living in the NOW, don't get too caught up in it all.

    Also, I love the head out the window and the wind. My parents make fun of me because i fall asleep with my head out the window going down highways. (:
