Brothers and sisters
I'm feelin' real good 'cause it ain't over
Right before I die I gotta live

Live out my dreams
So I can be what He planned for me
Not just for me but so they can see
Much more of Him and less of
Right before I die I gotta

Love my enemies, forgive the past
And set 'em free so I can free
Free up the things
Every blessing God has for me
See it's for me, not just for you
I had to learn from what I've been through
I can't go through that way again
Be hurt by you that way again
It's not the end

I used to be afraid to die
I used to be afraid to try
'Cause I was too afraid of knowing
What failing looked like
But the sun came to give me life
Now I feel like I can touch the sky
I'm ready if you're ready

Get up and live

Right now

Get up and live

Right now

Right before I die I gotta

Change, change how I think
Change how I speak I'm not the same
So when I speak
You don't hear the pain
No longer weak with no one to
Right before I die I gotta

Become more like you
Take up my cross
To count the cost 'cause I was lost
That's why I praise you
You're the only God
I don't know what they do

I used to be afraid to die
I used to be afraid to try
'Cause I was too afraid of knowing
What failing looked like
But the sun came to give me life
Now I feel like I can touch the sky
I'm ready if you're ready

Right now

Get up and live

Right now

So the next time you think of me
And you wonder where would I be
Without each blessing that helped me to see
Life is much more than things
And how you live is more than how you sing
When I die what did I really mean, I mean

Say what now? Say what? Say what now?
As we proceed, to give you what you need
Somebody, anybody, everybody, scream

I used to be afraid to die
I used to be afraid to try
'Cause I was too afraid of knowing
What failing looked like
But the sun came to give me life
Now I feel like I can touch the sky
I'm ready if you're ready

Right now

Get up and live

Right now

Let's go

Lord have mercy
I told you it ain't over for you
I see you livin'
I see you makin' it, but you all
Right before I live I have to die
