Thirty nine candles burn out on a cake
Each representing a million mistakes
The last one still burns, there’s a wish I can make
This time I’m gettin’ it right

So I close my eyes and I take a deep breath
And I promise myself in the time I have left

I’m gonna work like I don’t need the money
I’m gonna laugh like I’m not afraid to cry
I’m gonna dance like nobody’s watching
I’m gonna love while I still got the time

Lovin’ me hasn’t been easy on you
I don’t know why but I know you still do
It maybe my day but here’s a present for you
You’re lookin’ at your new man

He’s sincere and sober and faithful and kind
And he’s home when you need girl and startin’ tonight

I’m gonna work like I don’t need the money
I’m gonna laugh like I’m not afraid to cry
I’m gonna dance like nobody’s watching
I’m gonna love while I still got the time

No more excuses and no more me doin’ things wrong
Life is too short baby, I’ve wasted ours for too long
And baby from now on

I’m gonna work like I don’t need the money
I’m gonna laugh like I’m not afraid to cry
I’m gonna dance like nobody’s watching
I’m gonna love while I still got the time

I’m gonna work like I don’t need the money
I’m gonna laugh like I’m not afraid to cry
I’m gonna dance like nobody’s watching
I’m gonna love while I still got the time
I’m gonna love while I still got the time
While I still got the time, Lord, Lord
