Nickelback - If Today Was Your Last Day 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 had?
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 it 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 had?

And would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
And 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

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 had?
(Would you? Would you?)

And would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
And 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

Nickelback If Today Was Your Last Day Comments
  1. Bryan Risucci

    I'll never understand the social media hatred for Nickelback? For a band that's hated in this way there's still the 11th top selling artists in the history of music , so somebody out there likes them

  2. Rebecca Hermes

    Rebecca Hermes

    Dreaming of them

  3. Daniel Sales

    Remembering my hero Kobe Bryant brought me here. I’m truly going to miss him with every fiber in me. Rip to everyone on that helicopter. Heaven needed some new people.

    RIP Kobe Bryant. This song reminded me of him and his last day was an absolute tragedy for him, his daughter, his family, the other people on board the flight, his pilot, all Lakers and NBA fans who respected him and looked up to him. He will always be missed but never forgotten.

    Just a few weeks ago, i had a pulmonary embolism, i remember dropping to the floor in my house and then waking up. I went to the hospital.. the ER doctor told me i shouldn't be alive with the amount of blood clots i have in my lungs and should've died on that floor. It really hit me hard, I'm currently making a full recovery, but have a different outlook on life, I'm only 30 yrs old
