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

Yeah, gotta start
Lookin' at the hand of the time we've been given here
This is all we got and we gotta start thinkin'
If every second counts on a clock that's tickin'
Gotta live like we're dying

Yeah, we got 86400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or 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 let fall out of our lives
So when we long for absolution
There'll be no one on the line

Yeah, gotta start
Lookin' at the hand of the time we've been given here
This is all we got and we gotta start thinkin' if
Every second counts on a clock that's tickin'
Gotta live like we're dying

We only got 86400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or 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 86400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or 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 till 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
Lookin' at the hand of the time we've been given here
This is all we got and we gotta start thinkin' if
Every second counts on a clock that's tickin'
Gotta live like we're dying

We only got 86400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or 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 86400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or 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
Live like we're dying
