Live, Like It’s Your Last Day
Written by: Jimmy Buffett / Mac McAnally
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Life On the Flip Side (2020)

Lyrics:
[Chorus]
Live, relive
Learn to forgive
Time just keeps slippin’ away
Live, relive
Learn to forgive
Live like it’s your last?day

[Verse 1]
Cats?have nine lives?and eons to play
Planets and stars?are light years away
Their cosmic clock ticks and it tocks
Here?in?the?Milky Way
Just like?a whirlpool, the?universe has rules
There’s no rehearsal or cosmic reversal
You can pray or stand still
Or grab one last cheap thrill
But here’s all I have to say

[Refrain]
Live like it’s your last day
Sing karaoke and sip some Rosé
This won’t last forever
But if you’re clever
You just might sail away
And live like it’s your last day

[Verse 2]
Fuel the jet now, don’t delay
Bucket lists are just cliché
No acts of contrition
Or asking for permission
You’ll have lots of options this way

[Chorus]
Live, relive
Learn to forgive
Time just keeps slippin’ away
Live, relive
Learn to forgive
Live like it’s your last day

[Bridge]
(Live)
What you want, what you dream
What you might have heard was beyond your reach
(Oh, live)
On the water, on the wind
On the move, on the edge or maybe on the beach
(Oh, just live)
For the chance or the dance
Or the new romance in every single day
(Come on and live)
For the joy or the buzz or maybe just because
I can’t think of a reason not to

[Chorus]
Live, relive
Learn to forgive
Time just keeps slippin’ away
(Time just keeps slippin’ away)
Live, relive
Learn to forgive
Live like it’s your last day
Time just keeps slipping away
