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)

    Wow – this is kind of sad. Was this a haphazardness release, to sort of get him out of the way, and clear the stage for the real talent (wink, wink, Adam). Seriously though, it is not awful – simply mediocre just as expected. I am going to say this; Kris is much, much more talented than John Mayer – see I complemented him.

    What surprises me is that Kris’s cover on AI were awesome and very different from the original (“Heartless” originally by Kanye for example, he made it into an groovy folk piece) and, I just listenend to The Script’s version/ IT IS EXACTLY THE SAME. Same arrangements, same riffs… Kris, I don’t know if they forced you to do that with your AI contract, but I think you can do WAY better than that.

    @Fairytale: it’s not the same title… Live like WE’RE dying”… and it’s a cover, so he didn’t write the name

    For all the freaking haters, it’s not a freaking COVER!
    It’s a demo The Script did and they never released it (unless you count a b-side) nor is it an album-track of theirs. It was OBVIOUSLY SHOPPED around by the writers/producers and was luckily given to Kris. Stop making a big deal out of it.

    This was the same case with almost all songs..Bleeding Love, Umbrella, Disturbia, Nothing Compares 2 U, Billie Jean…i can go on and mention millions of songs if you want me to. The point is he is the first to officially release this song, so it’s his.

    And those hating on Kris, go away and worship your so-called “god” Adam instead of bashing a person who did nothing to you.

    Then you must find The Script’s version boring because The Script’s fans are saying he copied The Script.

    How stupid to copy The Script exactly. Go buy the Script’s song. They wrote it. It is their art.

    Ron Says:

    @meg the script didnt write it. i was written by the guys who wrote Natasha Bedingfield’s ‘Unwritten’. they only did a demo of it. get ur facts straight.
