"If You Live" as written by and Matthew Morris Pond....

i fell running through the fields and you fell with me
our arms and legs were crossed under the grass's green
i don't want to get caught looking
but somehow i always do
your lower teeth stuck out the same way that mine do

we would run through crowds at fairs with no one noticing
thousands and there's only one thing i could see

now i wish i knew truth if it was happening
look here comes the proof bigger than anything

cause if you live a love
live it like your last
because the time will come and the time will pass
if you live a love
live it like your last
live it like your last

your hands upon the wheel, you led me to ottawa
i looked at you, you looked back and i looked away
i was trying to prove there was something wrong
that was not that truth, it wasn't anything

cause if you live a love
live it like your last
because the time will come and the time will pass
if you live a love
live it like your last
live it like your last

if i catch you with a phone call
i'll be killing inhibition
i'll say everything i know i've never said before
like you breathing in the backseat
on a bed of metal brackets
your arms went straight to me as if they knew

if you live a love
live it like your last
live it like your last


i wish i could prove everybody wrong
i wish i'd never lose anybody
i wish i could prove everybody wrong
i wish i'd never lose anybody

    General CommentSuch a great song. To me it's about living in the moment with the person that you love and giving it all you have at the time (i.e. making it everything) but at the same time the reality is that sometimes it has to end.
