"Live Like We're Dying" as written by Stephen Alan Kipner, Andrew Frampton, Sheehan, and O'donoghue,....
Sometimes we fall down and can't get back up
We're hiding behind skin that's too tough
How come we don't say I love you enough
'Til it's too late, it's not too late

Our hearts are hungry for a food that won't come
And we could make a feast from these crumbs
And we're all staring down the barrel of a gun
So if your life flashed before you, what would you wish you would've done

Yeah gotta start
Looking at the hands of the time we've been given here
This is all we got then we gotta start thinkin' it
Every second counts on a clock that's tickin'
Gotta live like we're dying oh

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or to throw it all away
Gotta tell 'em that we love 'em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we're dying oh

Well if your plane fell out of the skies
Who would you call with your last goodbye
Should be so careful who we left out of our lives
So when we long for absolution, there'll be no one on the line

Yeah we gotta start lookin' at the hands of the time we've been given here
This all we got then we gotta start thinkin' it
Every second counts on a clock that's tickin'
Gotta live like we're dying oh

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or to throw it all away
Gotta tell 'em that we love 'em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we're dying

Like we're dying oh
Like we're dying
Like we're dying oh
Like we're dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or to throw it all away
Gotta tell 'em that we love 'em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we're dying oh

You never know a good thing until it's gone
You never see a crash until it's head on
Why we think we're right when we're dead wrong,
You never know a good thing 'til it's gone

Yeah we gotta start lookin' at the hands of the time we've been given here
This all we got and we gotta start thinkin' it
Every second counts on a clock that's tickin'
Gotta live like we're dying oh

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or to throw it all away
Gotta tell 'em that we love 'em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we're dying

Like we're dying oh
Like we're dying
Like we're dying oh
Like we're dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or to throw it all away
Gotta tell 'em that we love 'em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we're dying oh

    General CommentThis song's basically about chances. Sometimes because of heartbreaks from the past, you don't dare break out and tell your next crush/love that you like him/her. But noone knows when your life's gonna end. Let's say you're in an aeroplane and the plane crashes. Your life could be gone just like that. So this song is about living like you're dying, to do all that you genuinely wanna do when you have only 24h in a day. 24h = 1440min = 86 400s.

    So hurry up tell those you love that you really love them before it's too late and then regrets will start pouring in. Don't worry about what the consequence will be. Even if it's another heartbreak, you know that you've tried so that's what that matters. After that, carry on finding your true love!
