One Life Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

When I was a young boy
I was living for the moment
The world was wide open
I had every choice
But with so many choices
I just didn't know what to do now
All I say is forget it
If you tell me I'll regret it
Just let it be what it is
Coz it's so easy to say
If I knew yesterday what I know today, where would I be tomorrow
I won't let my soul slide away, I'd do whatever it takes
Coz this time's only borrowed
I got one life, one life, one life and I'm gonna live it
I got one life, one life, one life and I'm gonna live it right
My daddy sat me down, he said,
"Son it's probably time to start making some plans"
And I said, "No, not right now"
With so many choices
I just didn't know what to do now
All I'd say is forget it when he'd tell me I'd regret it
Just let it be what it is, coz it's so easy to say.
If I knew yesterday what I know today, where would I be tomorrow
I won't let my soul slide away, I'd do whatever it takes
Coz this time's only borrowed
I got one life, one life, one life and I'm gonna live it
I got one life, one life, one life and I'm gonna live it right
You say the more you think you know what's right
The less you do what you feel inside
So I won't pretend that I always know
I just follow my heart wherever it goes
And I may not always get it right
But at least I'm living coz I've only got this
One life, one life, one life, I've got this one life.
If I knew yesterday what I know today, where would I be tomorrow
I won't let my soul slide away, I'd do whatever it takes
Coz this time's only borrowed
I got one life, one life, one life and I'm gonna live it
I got one life, one life, one life and I'm gonna live it right
When I'm an old man, hope I'll be rocking in my chair
Smiling to myself
I'll tell my baby girl
"You only get one life, so make sure you live it right"
