"Live This Life" as written by John D. Rich and Kenny Alphin....
Met a man on the street last night said his name was Jesus
Met a man on the street last night
Thought he was crazy till I watched him heal the blind man
I watched him heal the blind man now I see yeah
I'll live this life until this life won't let me live here anymore
Then I will walk yes I will walk with patience through that open door
I have no fear angels follow me where ever I may go
I'll live this live until this life won't let me live here anymore

Met a girl in a chair with wheels but no one else would see here
Met a girl in a chair with wheels
Every one was so afraid to even look down on her
And she just spread her little wings and flew away
I'll live this life until this live won't let me live here anymore
And I will walk yes I will walk with patience though that open door
I have no fear angels follow me where ever I may go
I live this life until this life won't let me live here anymore
Live here anymore

Met a kid on a bridge last night contemplating freedom
Met a kid on a bridge last night
And he said I'm tired of this maddening life and I'm ready to go meet Jesus
I said he's a friend of mine met him just last night it's all right yeah
It's all right yeah
I'll live this life until this life won't let me live here anymore
Then I will walk yes I will walk with patience through that open door
I have no fears angels follow me where ever I may go
I'll live this life until this life won't let me live here anymore
Live here anymore
Met a man on the street last night said his name was Jesus
Met a man on the street last night

    General CommentWow, this song is gorgeously done. It's about suicide:
    "Met a girl in a chair with wheels, but no one else would see her
    Met a girl in a chair with wheels
    Everyone was so afraid to even look down on her
    And she just spread her little wings and flew away "

    and

    "Met a kid on a bridge last night, comtemplating freedom
    Met a kid on a bridge last night
    And he said, "I'm tired of this maddening life and I'm ready to go meet Jesus"

    And also about how no matter what, he will strive to live as long as he can:
    "I'll live this life until this life won't let me live here anymore
    Then I will walk, yes I will walk with patience through that open door
    I have no fears, angels follow me wherever I may go
    I'll live this life until this life won't let me live here anymore "

    Even if you're not really religious, like me, it has a great message, and because it's so beautifully sung, it's even just a great song to listen to without analyzing. Might even be my fav from Big + Rich.

    General Commentit is all about faith; things, thoughts, ideas, worlds, that are bigger then your own self interest.
