Live like you were dying

Tim McGraw is one of the Country superstars. A best selling artist, actor, good looking and married to another beautiful and successful county singer Faith Hill. Although I am not a huge fan, I like a couple of his songs.

This one "Live like you were dying" became a big hit in 2004, and is really a very good song. I totally agree with the lyrics. That's how everyone should live. It was written in the memory of his father, Tug McGraw, who was a successful baseball pitcher.

It tells a story of a person who has been told by the doctor that he doesn't have a lot of time. The lyrics are simple, yet make you philosophical.
Asked him when it sank in, that this might really be the real end.
How's it hit you, when you get that kind of news.
Man what you do?
And he says ...

I went sky diving,
I went rocky mountain climbing,
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull name Fumanchu.
And I loved deeper,
And I spoke sweeter,
And I gave forgiveness I've been denying,
And he said someday I hope you get the chance,
To live like you were dying.

  1. Abhay, you wrote "I totally agree with the lyrics. That's how everyone should live." and I absolutely agree with you. I have no regrets if I was to die at this very moment! I have many more dreams but no regrets!
