"Live For Today" as written by Bradley Kirk Arnold, Robert Todd Harrell, Christopher Lee Henderson and Matthew Darrick Roberts....
Show me the road and I will find my own
You build your bridges and I'll burn em down
So far away and all alone I roam
I'll take my chances in the here and now

And all you wonder is who's for sale, well you won't know now and I won't tell
Your always hiding throwing up your hands
While heroes ride again

[Chorus]
And god only knows all the places I've been
But I love this life that I'm living in
I won't look back to regret yesterday
Were not handed tomorrow so I'll live for today

Another day and yet anothers done spending a life living with in the past
I'll take the chance before the chance has gone
You never know when it'll be your last

But still you wonder who's for sale, well you won't know now and I won't tell
Your always hiding throwing up your hands
While heroes ride again

[Chorus]

We'll know when we run out of time until its all over with
And there'll be no where to run
We'll never say it but we're over out heads and we're drowning inside with all the things we've said

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentYo, I don't understand why this song doesn't have any comments... To me, this is my favorite song on the cd. This song actually gave me the courage to ask this girl out to the prom who i've been friends with for a few months. So, it worked out well for me.

    General CommentThis song is definetly one of the best of the album. One of the heaviest songs too. I dont understand why not to many people comment on 3 doors down. I mean a lot of people like 3 doors down, their the number 1 rock band in the US, but they dont have too many comments on their songs. Anyway, This song is about Living in the moment, Live for today, and dont worry about tommoro. We only have one life to live so live it the best you can.

    General CommentI love this song... the best song about living in the moment, and seeing that everything will work out in the end, no matter what...and how living in the past will only result in you being stuck there for the rest of your life... and possibly missing out on the best part of life, the here and now. :D

    3 doors down is just such an amazing band... I loooove their lyrics and music so much.

    General Commentmm, this song is written all over my calculator for some reason (other than the fact i really like it i guess)
    but yeah, i used to think that gone by switchfoot was the best "wake up- live for today" kinda song, but this.... closely rivals it... its a lot more serious.

    General CommentWell, I'm glad other people feel that living for today is a good idea.
    Seeing as how I'm "just a kid" a lot people think I need to grow up and plan my life better. But what is there to plan except for today? You don't know what's going to happen tomorrow, so I just do my best today and have fun doing it.

    General CommentThese guy's music is so great and positive, instead of moaning and kvetching like most other heavy metal bands.
