Isn't it funny how time seems to slip away so fast
One minute you're happy, the other you're sad
But if you give me one more chance
To show my love for you is true
I'll stand by your side your whole life through

[Chorus:]
If life is so short
Why don't you let me love you
Before we run out of time
If love is so strong
Why won't you take the chance
Before our time has gone
If life is so short, if life is so short

Love is a word that explains how I feel for you
And when you're in my arms, all my dreams come true
And when you're not around
You can't hardly see
These tears that I'm crying now are for you to be with me

[Chorus]

    Love me now or never. Life is so short to let someone wait.. So why do it later if you can do it now.

    My first love dedicated this song to me when life was hard and it was hard for us to be together. It was meaning that we should be together no matter what everyone says.
