"Days Go By" as written by Monty Powell and Keith Lionel Urban....
Whoa!

Oh yeah yeah

I'm changing lanes and talkin' on the phone
Drivin' way too fast.
And the interstate's jammed with gunners like me
Afraid of comin' in last.
But somewhere in the race we run,
We're coming undone

And days go by,
I can feel 'em flyin'
Like a hand out the window in the wind.
The cars go by,
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start livin' right now
'Cause days go by,
Oh and a woo-hoo

Out on the roof just the other night
I watched the world flash by,
Headlights, taillights,
Running through a river of neon signs.
But somewhere in the rush I felt,
We're losing ourselves

And days go by,
I can feel 'em flyin'
Like a hand out the window in the wind.
The cars go by,
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start livin' right now
Days go by,
Oh and a woo-hoo
Yeah the days go by
Oh and a woo-hoo

We think about tomorrow then it slips away.
Oh, yes, it does.
We talk about forever but we've only got today

And the days go by,
I can feel 'em flyin'
Like a hand out the window as the cars go by
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start livin',
You better start livin',
Better start livin' right now!

'Cause days go by,
I can feel 'em flyin'
Like a hand out the window in the wind.
The cars go by,
Yeah it's all we've been given,
So you better start livin' right now
'Cause days go by,
Oh and a woo-hoo
Yeah these days go by
Oh and a woo-hoo

Oh!
So take 'em by the hand,
They're yours and mine.
Take 'em by the hand,
And live your life.
Take 'em by the hand,
Don't let 'em all fly by!

Come on, come on now,
Yeah!
Come on now!
Oh and a woo-hoo!
Don't you know the days go by

    General CommentIt was ‎Friday, ‎October ‎14, ‎2005, ‏‎2:34:22 PM that I first downloaded this song, and I was 20 years old. Lots of trauma in my life between 2002 and 2005 caused this song to impact me in a way that forced me to face the cold hard facts of life, and what route most people in this world take for that matter. I decided to change my life so that one day I would not look back on songs like these and feel that kind of pent up list of regrets Keith creates in this song.

    It is currently Friday, November 9th, 2018, 9:15:05 AM and I am at present time 33 years old. Easily looking back now and knowing it was the best that decision I ever made, heeding the simple warning of this song. In fact, I have indeed "lived some" in the last 13 years. I do not feel any major "time based" regrets even as I am listening to it right now on repeat 13 years later, what I get is mostly just nostalgia. Live, people, that is the message and it is right there in your face. Stop to smell the roses every now and then because if you don't, this song becomes an undeniable reality for you.

    Last stanza, words to live by:

    "So take 'em by the hand
    They're yours and mine
    Take 'em by the hand
    And live your life
    Take 'em by the hand
    Don't let 'em all fly by
    Come on, Come on now
    Don't you know the days go by"
