If I had no more time
No more time left to be here
Would you cherish what we had?
Was it everything that you were looking for?
If I couldn't feel your touch
And no longer were you with me
I'd be wishing you were here
To be everything that I'd be looking for
I don't wanna forget the present is a gift
And I don't wanna take for granted the time you may have here with me
'Cause Lord only knows another day is not really guaranteed

So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you'll never see me again
Every time you touch me
Touch me like this is the last time
Promise that you'll love me
Love me like you'll never see me again

Oh Oh Ohhhhh

How many really know what love is?
Millions never will
Do you know until you lose it
That it's everything that we are looking for
When I wake up in the morning
You're beside me
I'm so thankful that I found
Everything that I been looking for

I don't wanna forget the present is a gift
And I don't wanna take for granted the time you may have here with me
'Cause Lord only knows another day is not really guaranteed

So everytime you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you'll never see me again
(can you do that for me baby)
Every time you touch me
(see we don't really know)
Touch me like this is the last time
(see everyday we never know)
Promise that you'll love me
(I want you to promise me)
Love me like you'll never see me again
(like you'll never see me again)

Ohhh ohhh ohhh ohhh ohhh

    This song was a favorite of my deceased boyfriend and each time we were together he lived each day like it was his last. This song has a true meaning of life each day. My friend and I spent four days together during 2008 Memorial Day weekend (Saturday thru Tuesday). The following Thursday, he passed awayunexpectedly. When we were together during these days he lived them like they were his last. He is truly missed.

    YOU SHOULD LOVE AND CHERISH SOMEONE WHILE YOU STILL HAVE THE CHANCE, BECAUSE ONCE THEY'RE GONE YOU'LL ONLY HAVE TO LIVE WITH THE GUILT OF LETTING THE ONE YOU LOVE SLIT OUT OF YOUR HANDS.

    We will never know of what will happen at the front. Always try to appreciate of the person that we love most...make full use of this lyric..it's tremendously meaningful..When we already lost them,don't ever hope for it will come back..We are not God who can arrange everything like we want..but try,try to appreciate them as much as you can..or you'll regret..for life..
