If Today Was Your Last Day

Sounds pretty scary, doesn’t it?

Well, it is Nickelback’s song from their album, Dark Horse. I downloaded it last month if I ain’t mistaken. I wasn’t really into it actually, but lately I’m kinda addicted to this song. I really love its lyrics which is absolutely meaningful. Everytime I hear it, I’m blown away. Here’s the 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

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 old 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

I am very touched with the lyrics. It’s just so amazing. I can’t believe that a rock band like Nickelback could possibly make a song like this. I’m not a huge fan of Nickelback or even rock genre, but exception for this one. Everytime I play this song from my iTunes, I always feel as if today were my last day. This song really motivates me to do good deeds in every second of my life. At least, I’ve been trying to. The message from this song is that you should make the most of your life because you can only live once, it is irreversible.

Hopefully, it can inspire you all, too.

p.s. Personally, I can’t believe I post this one in my blog. I’ve never sounded as wise as what this post says. lol
