If Today Was Your Last Day

My best friend gave me
The best advice

He said each day’s a gift
And not a given right
Leave no stone unturned
Leave your fears behind
And try to take
The path less traveled by
That first step you take
Is the longest stride

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
If today was your last day
If today was your last day

Against the grain
Should be a way of life
What’s worth the prize
Is always worth the fight
Every second counts
’cause there’s no second try,
So live like you’ll
Never live it twice
Don’t take the free ride
In your own life

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce of memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you’re dreamin’ of
Swear up and down to God above
That you’ll finally fall in love

If today was your last day
If today was your last day…
Would you make your mark
By mending a broken heart?
You know it’s never too late
To shoot for the stars,
Regardless of who you are
So do whatever it takes
’cause you can’t rewind
A moment in this life
Let nothin’ stand in your way
’cause the hands of time
Are never on your side

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late,
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce of memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you’re dreamin’ of
Swear up and down to God above
That you’ll finally fall in love
If today was your last day
