Kris Allen – Live Like We're Dying lyrics

Sometimes we fall down and can't get back up
We're hiding behind skin that's too tough
How come we don't say I love you enough
Till it's too late, it's not too late
Our hearts are hungry for a food that won't come
We could make a feast from these crumbs
And we're all staring down the barrel of a gun
So if your life flashed before you, what would you wish you would've done

[Chorus:]
Yeah, gotta start
Looking at the hands of the time we've been given here
This is all we got and we gotta start thinkin' it
Every second counts on a clock that's tickin'
Gotta live like we're dying
We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or to throw it all away
We gotta tell 'em that we love 'em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we're dying

And if your plane fell out of the skies
Who would you call with your last goodbyes
Should be so careful who we left out of our lives
So when we long for absolution, there'll be no one on the line

Yeah, gotta start
Looking at the hands of the time we've been given here
This is all we got and we gotta start thinkin' it
Every second counts on a clock that's tickin'
Gotta live like we're dying
We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or to throw it all away
We gotta tell 'em that we love 'em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we're dying

Like we're dying
Oh, like we're dying
Like we're dying
Oh, ike we're dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or to throw it all away
We gotta tell 'em that we love 'em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we're dying

You never know a good thing until it's gone
You never see a crash until it's head on
All these people right when we're dead wrong,
You never know a good thing till it's gone

Yeah, gotta start
Looking at the hands of the time we've been given here
This is all we got and we gotta start thinkin' it
Every second counts on a clock that's tickin'
Gotta live like we're dying
We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or to throw it all away
We gotta tell 'em that we love 'em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we're dying

Like we're dying
Oh, like we're dying
Like we're dying
Oh, like we're dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or to throw it all away
We gotta tell 'em that we love 'em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we're dying

    I think it means that we gotta keep goin' on with life cuz we only get to live and die once. Just make the most out of it and not waste your time, even though it's very hard to when you know you want something. We all have purpose in this life and there's a significance to it. And every second counts.
    Xo live like we're dying. Most importantly, learn to love and appreciate what you have. Before it suddenly disappears.

    It's saying that you only get to live one life. So just don't regret anything. If you want to do something, just do it. You don't have any second chances. Just like, if you love someone, tell them. If they don't feel the same, take the rejection. If you have something you know that's important, don't ever let go off it or don't take it for granted. If you got haters. Forget about them. Don't ever let them stop you from doing someone you want. In short words. Live like you know you're about to die in the next 30 minutes.
