Brownlee, Chad - Leave Here Dying Young Lyrics

Yeah, he's the youngest man I know at 65
A little slower than he used to be but there's a fire in his eyes
He's got a few more wrinkles on his face, and grey hair's finally found it's place
But when he smiles, you can see that kid inside

So this is what it means to be alive
He'll dance like no one's watching, laugh until he cries
He holds on tight and loves without regret, he takes the good and leaves the rest
And when all is said and done, he's gonna leave here dying young

Well, there 'ain't one of us who will ever know what tomorrow brings
It sure gets here fast and in a lightening flash it can change most anything
Make sure you learn to let it roll, 'cause it's all gonna fall you know
Don't let the sunset blow, find you're a better soul

So remember what it means to be alive
You gotta dance like no one's watching, just laugh until you cry
Hold on tight and love without regret, take the good and leave the rest
Then when all is said and done, you're gonna leave here dying young

You only get one time around
Time's always counting down
And what you do with this life's always up to you

So remember what it means to be alive
You gotta dance like no one's watching, just laugh until you cry
Hold on tight and love without regret, take the good and leave the rest
Then when all is said and done, you're can leave here dying young

I'm gonna leave here... dying young

    Such a big meaning to this song. It makes you realize how you have to enjoy every moment you have. Don't be afraid to move forward. People always say they miss being young and doing silly things, I say go for it and don't stop being young.

  21. Jerry Neville

    This...this, is a song! So much truth hasn`t been put to words before. This song touched me and brought back great memories of being with my dad. I got to golf with him 8 hours before he slipped into dementia, and watching you play hockey with your dad and having that video should be something you cherish. Talk soon!
