I've lived for a high school grade and running 'round the track
I've lived for a hundred girls who've never called me back
I've lived the stage playing in a rock and roll band
But that's all gonna end some day and I'll have nowhere to stand

I've lived for the future and especially the past
But tomorrow never got here and the memories don't last
So I'm taking all I thought I knew and I'm throwing it away
I'm gonna start living for everything, yeah, I'm living for today

I've lived for a party, popping pills, drinking booze
I've lived for every music style country, rock, pop, dance, and blues
The party leaves you empty and the songs they always end
And as much fun as the blues is, it makes a pretty shitty friend

I've lived for being myself, and lived for being someone else
And though neither one was perfect, the first was better for my health
So I'm done caring what people think about the things I say
I'm not living for no stranger's brains, nah, I'm living for today

Oh, I don't think that it's too morbid to say
Oh, we all might die tomorrow, come with me
Like I should've learned the day my dear dad passed away
You're living for everything when you;re living for today
So forget all thaat other stuff and start living for today

I must've lived for more things than there are names to call
But right now, I'm just living for a soft spot to fall
You see, I'm tired but I'm happy
'Cause that's what living for today can do
But it sure has been easy since I've been living everyday with you
Yeah it sure has been easy since I've been living every day with you
