Nickelback – If Today Was Your Last Day lyrics

My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each days a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned
Leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride

If today was your last day
If tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday
Would you live each moment like your last
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have
If today was your last day

Going against the grain should be a way of life
What's worth the price is always worth the fight
Every second counts cause there's no second try
So live it like you're never living twice
Don't take the free ride in your whole life

If today was your last day
If tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday
Would you live each moment like your last
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have
And would you call old friends you never see
Reminisce old memories
Would you forgive your enemies
And would you find that one your dreaming of
Swear up and down to god above
That you'll finally fall in love
If today was your last day

If today was your last day
Would you make your mark
On ending a broken heart
You know it's never too late
To shoot for the stars
Regardless of who you are
So do whatever it takes
Cause you can't rewind
A moment in this life
Let nothing stand in your way
Cause the hands of time
Are never on your side

If today was your last day
If tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday
Would you live each moment like your last
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have
And would you call old friends you never see
Reminisce old memories
Would you forgive your enemies
And would you find that one your dreaming of
Swear up and down to god above
That you'll finally fall in love
If today was your last day

    When I first heard this song, I thought 'wow. If today was my last day, how could I do all of those things and all the things I've been meaning and wanting to do? ' now I know that I hav 2 start now becuz it cud b 2 late to start tomoro. This song really makes you think of what you hav. Forgive the people that ur fightin with and spend more time with those that you love. We all really need 2 take a step back and look at ourselves and our lives and think of betta things that we cud b doing with our lives instead of wasting time. Live your life as if there were no second chances. You go nickelback. We do really need 2 change the world lyk you guys said and this song cud just b doing that. I mean, what are we fighting 4? We shud b living peacefully. One love. One heart.

    It means to live each day to the fullest, because you never know when you'll die or even how. You want to make sure that you don't leave anything undone that you wanted to do, and don't hold things against others because there may come a day when you can't forgive them and they can't forgive you. So live each day like it won't last and try to make sure you are happy and everyone you love around you is happy. And, hell why not go out there and have some fun!

    This song is meant to make you think about everything that you want to do, so make sure you do it. If today was my last day, I would go to a wwe event, tell my family that I love them more than anything and pray that their lives are full of happiness. Plus I would party and go surfing and snowboarding. But honestly anyone of us could die at any moment, so live like you'll never live it twice.

    To me this song means that we should do what we can in our last hours of life helping everyone else whatever way we can and protecting them up until the very end and beyond and allow a peice of ourselves to linger behind to protect them until they die and continue until that family is dead and then do the same for any famalies you had ties to.

    We should live our lives the fullest because you cannot live your life twice. So you guys out there must not make mistakes cos there is no second try cos every second in life counts! This means alot to me cos my best friend went to korea and would never return again. And I cannot see her again. So I am living my life with my friends like I never see my friends twice. Cos l cannot rewind my life. So you guys out there. Live your lives the fullest!
