While I Can by Matthew West, off the album My Story Your Glory.

Lyrics

If today was my last day
I’d call my mom out of the blue
And I’d take the time to say
The words I seldom do

I’d leave my suitcase in the closet
And tell the world it’ll have to wait
Then I’d take my little girl
On an ice cream date

What am I waiting for
It ain’t like I’m gonna live forever
I don’t wanna miss it anymore
So, from now on it’s now or never
I’m gonna hold on to what matters
And let the rest slip through my hands
What I would do
Is what I will do
While I can

I’d bring home baby’s favorite flowers
And leave my work outside the door
And we’d laugh about how we both forgot
What we were mad at each other for

I’d let go of all my grudges
Make the choice to just forgive
And spend the rest of my time free
From all this hate and bitterness

So, what am I waiting for
It ain’t like I’m gonna live forever
I don’t wanna miss it anymore
So, from now on it’s now or never
I’m gonna hold on to what matters
And let the rest slip through my hands
What I would do
Is what I will do
While I can

If today was my last day
And it was almost time to go
I’d pick up that old Bible
And I’d put down my phone

I’d watch the steam rise from my coffee
And the sun rise in the sky
And I’d thank the Lord for one more chance
To try and get it right

What am I waiting for
It ain’t like I’m gonna live forever
I don’t wanna miss it anymore
So, from now on it’s now or never
I’m gonna hold on to what matters
And let the rest slip through my hands
What I would do
Is what I will do
While I can

What I would do
Is what I will do
While I can
