I dedicate this song to my parents…

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?
Til it’s too late, it’s not too late.
Our hearts are hungry for a food that won’t come,
But we can make a feast from these crumbs.
We’re all staring down the barrel of a gun,
So if your life flashed before you, what would you wish you would have done?
We’ve got to stop looking at the hands of the time we’ve been given,
If this is all we’ve got, then we got to start thinking it.
Every second counts on a clock that’s ticking,
Got to live like we’re dying.
We’ve only got 86 400 seconds in a day,
To turn it all around or to throw it all away.
Gotta tell them that we love them while we’ve got the chance to say,
Got to live like we’re dying.
If your plane fell out of the skies,
Who would you call with your last goodbyes?
Should be so careful who we left out of our lives,
When we long for absolution, there’ll be no one on the line.
You never know a good thing until 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 until it’s gone.
