If Today Was Your Last Day Lyrics
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...

"If today was your last day" - If you die tonight.
"And tomorrow was too late" - And you're not going to see the day after today
"Would you say goodbye to yesterday?" - Could you let yesterday go?
"Would you live each moment like your last?" - I like to think this one is self explanatory....
"Leave old pictures in the past" - Let go of all the old memories
"Donate every dime you have?" - Give everything you have to charity?
"Would you call old friends you never see?" - please tell me you don't need me to explain this one to you....
"Reminisce old memories" - be nostalgic
"Forgive your enemies?" - Self explanatory
"Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?" - Go look for that special person we all want to find
"Swear up and down to God above" - Suddenly become a christian, so you can get into heaven
"That you finally fall in love" - are you seriously still reading this???
"If today was your last day." - It's official, if you read all of the way through this you need to seek help or are very very bored

This song to me is insperational. It's telling me to live life to the fullest and on the edge.

Maybe its about a soldier telling another soldier to value life.

I think it means like ask your self if today was your last day to live what would you do would you live it to the fullest or would you spend it saying goodbye .

To back up the previous comment, I believe that the song is about 2 things. One; make the most of your life while you have it as it isn't gonna last forever. Two (the more prominent of the two); if you know you're getting on and have left loose ends along the path, you should return and tie them up. Let your friends know how you feel before it's too late, don't miss your chance to find that special someone and forgive your enemies.

I think it says that all of our days are limited and you should do everything you ever wanted to do, because you never know whats going to happen next.
