A song lyric, a remembrance of the past.
I Wanna Live Before I Die

Grandma told a story,
Back when Grandpa was alive;
Seems he got a little "frisky"
When he was sixty-five.
When she asked him what got into him,
He just grinned and said,
"Honey, I'm old, but I'm not dead."

I Wanna Live Before I Die,
Give everything a try.
Never be afraid to laugh,
Or too ashamed to cry.
I wanna stand up on that mountain,
And try to touch the sky!
Baby, I Wanna Live Before I Die.

I think about my Grandpa
With every chance I take.
Glad for his encouragement,
Even when I make mistakes.
It doesn't matter, win or lose,
I had the guts to try.
I'll never shake my head and wonder why.

I Wanna Live Before I Die,
Give everything a try.
Never be afraid to laugh,
Or too ashamed to cry.
I wanna stand up on that mountain,
And try to touch the sky!
Baby, I Wanna Live Before I Die.

Life can be so satisfying,
Love can be intense!
But you're never gonna find out
If you're sittin' on a fence.

I Wanna Live Before I Die,
Give everything a try.
Never be afraid to laugh,
Or too ashamed to cry.
I wanna stand up on that mountain,
And try to touch the sky!
Baby, I Wanna Live Before I Die.
I just wanna live before I die!
