​Leave Here Dying Young

This song is by Chad Brownlee and appears on the album Love Me or Leave Me (2012).

Yeah he's the youngest man I know at 65,
A little slower than he used to be but there's a fire in his eyes,
He's got a few more wrinkles on his face, and grey hair's finally found it's place,
But when he smiles, you can see that kid inside,

So this is what it means to be alive,
He'll dance like no one's watching, laugh until he cries,
He holds on tight and loves without regret, he takes the good and leaves the rest,
And when all is said and done, he's gonna leave here dying young.

Well there 'ain't one of us who will ever know what tomorrow brings,
It sure gets here fast and in a lightening flash it can change most anything,
Make sure you learn to let it roll, 'cause it's all gonna fall you know,
Don't let the sunset blow, find you're a better soul...

So remember what it means to be alive,
You gotta dance like no one's watching, just laugh until you cry,
Hold on tight and love without regret, take the good and leave the rest,
Then when all is said and done, you're gonna leave here dying young,

You only get one time around,
Time's always counting down,
And what you do with this life's always up to you.

So remember what it means to be alive,
You gotta dance like no one's watching, just laugh until you cry,
Hold on tight and love without regret, take the good and leave the rest,
Then when all is said and done, you're can leave here dying young,

I'm gonna leave here... dying young.
