If Today Was Your Last Day

If today was your last day...

If today was your last day...

Today I head this new song by Nickelback, from their Dark Horse album. The lyrics may not be the most original, the message really struck a chord with me. We all know what it’s like to procrastinate (some of us more than others!); the truth is that we can put off doing the things that make our life matter – to us, and to others.

The songs says “the hands of time are never on your side” – this is so true. What important thing(s) could you do today that you’ve been putting off? What would you actually do if today was your last day?

Lyrics to the song are below. Let it stir you into action! Change is not comfortable but if we don’t grow, we go backwards and our life actually gets SMALLER. Think about it – and DO.

If Today Was Your Last Day lyrics
Songwriters: Kroeger, Chad

My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day’s a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride

If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last
Leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you had, if today was your last day?
What if, what if, if today was your last day?

Against the grain should be a way of life
What’s worth the price is always worth the fight
Every second counts ’cause there’s no second try
So live like you’re never living twice
Don’t take the free ride in your own life

If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you had?

And would you call those friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories?
Would you forgive your enemies?
And would you find that one you’re dreaming of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you’d finally fall in love if today was your last day?

If today was your last day
Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
You know it’s never too late to shoot for the stars
Regardless of who you are

So do whatever it takes
‘Cause you can’t rewind a moment in this life
Let nothing stand in your way
‘Cause the hands of time are never on your side

If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you had?

And would you call those friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories?
Would you forgive your enemies?
And would you find that one you’re dreaming of
Swear up and down to God above
That you’d finally fall in love if today was your last day?

I would love more, eat more and forget caring about cleaning house if it were my last day. Great song.
