I don't want to one day look back on my life
Sayin why didn't I do all I could have done
Cause life's too short and death's too long
And before you know it the time is gone
And there just ain't way to ever get it back

Oh, I'd trade my fear and all my pride
For a life with no regrets
And every tear that ain't been cried for what hasn't happened yet
And if I try but fail
I know I can be at peace with that
So while I live
I'm gonna live without holding back
Cause I don't want to wish I had

So let me tell you somethin that's been on my mind
All my dreams come alive each time that I'm with you
Every word I meant to say up to now has been locked away
And damn the consequences here I go

Oh I'd trade my fear and all my pride
For a life with no regrets
And every tear that ain't been cried for what hasn't happened yet
And if I try but fail
I know I can be at peace with that
So when I love
I'm gonna love without holding back
Cause I don't want to wish I had

So I'd trade my fear and all my pride
For a life with no regrets
And every tear that ain't been cried for what hasn't happened yet
And if I try but fail
I know I can be at peace with that
So when I love
I'm gonna love without holding back
Cause I don't want to wish I had
No, I don't want to wish I had
