Thirty nine candles burnt out on a cake
Each representing a million mistakes
The last one still burns, there's a wish I can make
This time I'm getting it right
So I close my eyes and I take a deep breath
And I promise myself in the time I have left

[Chorus]
I'm gonna work like I don't need the money
I'm gonna laugh like I'm not afraid to cry
I'm gonna dance like nobody's watching
I'm gonna love while I still got the time

Loving me hasn't been easy on you
I don't know why, but I know you still do
It may be my day, but here's a present for you
You're looking at your new man
He's sincere and sober and faithful and kind
And he's home when you need him and girl starting tonight

[Chorus]

No more excuses and no more me doing things wrong
Life is too short, baby, I've wasted ours for too long
And baby from now on

[Chorus]

I'm gonna work like I don't need the money I know I am
I'm gonna laugh like I'm not afraid to cry laugh laugh laugh
I'm gonna dance like nobody's watching I'm gonna dance I'm gonna dance
I'm gonna love while I still got the time
I'm gonna love while I still got the time
While I still got the time
