And there's a man dyin' on the side of the road
Won't make it home tonight.
He was drivin' fast on a cellular phone
That's how he lived his life.

M-mm...

While he was hangin' by a thread
These were the final words he said.

My girl turn sweet sixteen today.
She's beautiful, so beautiful.
It might get rough sometimes,
But I hope she keeps her faith (Hope she keeps her faith)
I wish I grabbed the chance to say to her,
Life is too short so take the time and appreciate.

And there's a woman crying on the kitchen floor;
She got a call tonight.
And now she's tremblin' outside her daughter's door,
Walks in and holds her tight.
Wonderin' how or where to start,
Is there a way to shield her heart?

(Chorus)
My girl turned sweet sixteen today,
She's beautiful, so beautiful.
It might get rough sometimes,
But I hope she keeps her faith (Hope she keeps her faith)
I wish I grabbed the chance to say to her,
Life is too short so take the time and appreciate.

Anybody lovin' will (lovin' will)
Get hurt along the way.
Don't be afraid to open up (open up)
And use the time you have before it fades.
Show your love today!

(Chorus)
My girl turned sweet sixteen today,
She's beautiful, so beautiful.
It might get rough sometimes (It might get rough sometimes)
But I hope she keeps her faith (Hope she keeps her faith)
I wish I grabbed the chance to say to her,
Life is too short so take the time and appreciate.

Life is too short so take the time and appreciate
