When I was young I was invincible
I found myself not thinking twice
I never thought about no future
It's just a roll of the dice

But the day may come when you got something to lose
And just when you think you're done paying dues
You say to yourself "Dear, God What have I Done?"
And hope it's not to late cause tomorrow may never come

Reach for the sky cause tomorrow may never come
Reach for the sky cause tomorrow may never come

Yesterday is history
And tomorrow is a mystery
But baby right now,
It's just about you and me

You can run you can hide
Just like Bonnie and Clyde
Reach for the sky
Ain't never gonna die
And I thank the Lord for the love that I have found
And hold you tight cause tomorrow may never come

Reach for the sky cause tomorrow may never come
Reach for the sky cause tomorrow may never come

So if you please take this moment
Try if you can to make it last
Don't think about no future
And just forget about the past
And make it last

Reach for the sky cause tomorrow may never come
(reach for the sky I ain't never going down)
Reach for the sky cause tomorrow may never come
(reach for the sky I ain't never coming down)
Reach for the sky cause tomorrow may never come
(reach for the sky I ain't never going down)
Reach for the sky cause tomorrow may never come

    Basically, this song means to take everything and live for today and to be thankful for all the happiness in your life and what makes you happy the most. Sorta' like live for the moment kinda thing. Don't think about what might happen tomorrow and put yesterday behind you because it's in the past. Just make the most of now cause' you might not live to see tomorrow. All in all, it's just trying to say live for here and now and make the most of it.

    The song expresses a realization of how frontman Mike Ness had ruined his life, saying "Dear God, what have I done?" and then to "Hope it's not too late, 'cuz tomorrow may never come." The last stanza reads as follows:

    So if you'd please take this moment,
    try if you can to make it last,
    don't think about no future,
    and just forget about the past,
    and make it last!
    Reach for the sky, cause tomorrow may never come."
