There's a man dying on the side of the road
Won't make it home tonight
He was driving fast on his cell phone
That's how he lived his life
While he was hanging by a thread
These were the final words he said

My girl turns 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 a chance to say to her
Life is too short
So take the time and appreciate

There's a women crying on the kitchen floor
She got a call tonight
Now she's trembling outside her daughter's door
Walks in and holds her tight
Wondering how and where to start
Is there a way to shield her heart?

My girl turns 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 a chance to say to her
Life is too short
So take the time and appreciate

Any but a loving way
Get hurt along the way
Don't be afraid to open up
And use the time you have before it fades
Show your love today

My girl turns 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 a 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

    General Commenti've never heard this song, but i love the lyrics!
    personally i think that nick is the best singer out of the three (no offense, Kevin and Joe!) so I'm sure I'm gonna love it....just because he has such an amazing voice
