If Today Was Your Last Day - Nickelback



The Experience:
Against the grain should be a way of life. What's worth the prize is worth the fight. Every second counts, 'cause there's no second try. So live like you'll never live it twice. Don't take the free ride in your own life.

Music Video:
Two shady-looking teens sneak their backpacks across the city, the contents of which are unknown. They finally open them atop a bridge and pour out the contents. To our surprise, they turn out to be filled with slips of paper with lines from the song, each with it's message to the people below them: to a fighting couple: forgive your enemies, to a stressed businessman, take the first step, etc. At the same time, two women who appeared to be smuggling illegal goods turn out to be bringing coats to people on the street.


My Take:
Take advantage of your life to leave your mark, and leave the world a better place. 

Ask Yourself:
If today was your last day, would you live each moment like your last, donate every dime you have, call old friends you never see, would you forgive your enemies? Why wait? It could be today.

LYRICS:

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 have?
If today was your last day (bis)

Against the grain should be a way of life
What's worth the prize is always worth the fight
Every second counts 'cause there's no second try
So live like you'll never live it 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 have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce of memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you 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 nothin' 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 have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce of memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day
