“Live Like We’re Dying” – Then Sings My Soul Saturdays

Then Sings My Soul Saturday I was happy when Kris Allen from Arkansas won this season’s American Idol.

And I’m happy now to hear his newly-released single, Live Like We’re Dying. It’ll preach.

As Christians, we are to live like we’re dying (Phil 3:8); make the most of every opportunity (Psalm 90:12; Col 4:5); love others with all we’ve got (Matt 22:39; Gal 5:14).

Live Like We’re Dying
LYRICS

Sometime 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 hand 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 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 live out of our lives
So when we long for absolution, there’ll be no one on the line

CHORUS

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

CHORUS

I was really glad to see him win also. I like him quite a bit and so did my daughter.

What a great message in this song. It really puts this life into perspective. I hadn't heard it but I too was glad when Kris Allen won American Idol. I'm glad to see that he's singing songs like this and not giving in to the pressure of conforming to the world. Love to hear this. Thanks Lisa for sharing this with us.

Blessings,
Debbie
