Kris Allen – “Live Like We’re Dying” Lyrics

Sometimes we fall down and can’t get back up
We’re hiding behind skin that’s too tough
How come we don’t say I love you enough
Till it’s too late, it’s not too late

Our hearts are hungry for a food that won’t come
We could make a feast from these crumbs
And we’re all staring down the barrel of a gun
So if your life flashed before you, what would you wish you would’ve done

Yeah, gotta start
Looking at the hand of the time we’ve been given here
This is all we got and we gotta start thinkin’ it
Every second counts on a clock that’s tickin’
Gotta live like we’re dying
We only got 86 400 seconds in a day
To turn it all around or throw it all away
We gotta tell ‘em that we love ‘em while we got the chance to say,
Gotta live like we’re dying

And if you plane fell out of the skies
Who would you call with your last goodbyes
Should be so careful who we live out of our lives
So when we long for absolution, there’ll be no one on the line


Like we’re dying (x4)


You never know a good thing until it’s gone
you never see a crash until its head on
All these people right when we’re dead wrong,
You never know a good thing till it’s gone


Like we’re dying (x4)

Why would he release a song with the SAME title as a popular Tim McGraw song? This is really ridiculous.

What a rip off....... @ 09/21/2009 at 1:45 pm

How lame that he’s still is covering other peoples songs and couldn’t come up with his own material, the Script did it much better anyway!

ummmm. not a real fan of the song…1. he didn’t make it is own…it sounds just like “The Scripts” version and 2. why come out with someone elses song as ur first “real” single. Show America that they were right in voting for you and give us something original. i found the song quite boring… but thats my opinion.

The Script are an Awesome Band! There version is a hell of alot better that this guys

Well, for those of use who don’t know who “The Script” is, this is a nice introduction to the song. I like this version. “The Script” must be happy (if they wrote it) because I’m sure this will earn them some moola, as does most from the AI machine :)

Honestly i think its stupid that his first single is a cover song.. i dont like the song at all. i think he would have done better with No Boundries as a single.

Kris Allen is the best there is. He did an amazing job on the song. I really like it and it was really great.

mmm.. it’s ok not too bad not too good either..

I love this song! It’s amazing Kris !

Why release a cover is what I’m asking. Didn’t he get enough of those on Idol?

I like Kris Allen but the song does not impress me.
It reminds me of James Morrison.
I don’t feel the song…sorry Kris…

i was just sayin it… he sounds like The Script ;) ;) like it

EXCELLENT! Kris is awesome!

this is AMAZING and for those of you hating on him(adam fans) this song is amazing and who cares if it is a cover alot of people do that and some of has never even heard of the script so they should be thankful now more people knows who they are whether you like kris or not you have to admit that basically everyone knows about american idol which then they know about him(and adam)

wow it’s really cool. love it. surprising cos i liked adam before. oh well, hope they both do well.

brother is lilly allen ?
