He said I was in my early forties, with a lot of life before me
When a moment came that stopped me on a dime.
I spent most of the next days, looking at the X-rays
Talking about the options and talking about sweet times.
I asked him when it sank in, that this might really be the real end
How's it hit you when you get that kind of news?
Man, what did you do?
I went skydiving
I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I'd been denying
And he said someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dying.
