One shot is all you got
To make your mark, To make your difference
One chance, but you don't understand this

La la la la la
La la la la la
Life is but a breath
Don't waste it

Cause your time is limited
All you have is the breath already exiting your lungs
If you won't live, you might as well die
You can't afford to lead that life

La la la la la
La la la la la
Life is but a breath
Don't waste it

Hands down, no regrets
Life has its hands, around my neck
Fight back, no regrets
Life has its hands, around our necks

La la la la la
La la la la la
Life is but a breath
Don't waste it

La la la la la
La la la la la
Life is but a breath
Don't waste it

    General CommentThis song to me means a lot more than it did a while back. One of my best friends died on easter this year. For me, this song means that life for us is just a blink of an eye, just a breath of how long the world really is. It means you never know when it will end and not to take your life for granted.
