Live Before You Die Lyrics – Bon Jovi

I was a little boy of 9 years old
The whole world in my hands
Trying to toss that ball across the yard
A game of catch with my old man
He would always say I’m sorry Every time he had to leave
And I was much too young to understand When he would say to me
When you’re young you always think The sun is going to shine
There will come a day When you have to say hello to goodbye
Sit down son come take my hand, Look me in the eye Take these words, promise me You’ll live before you die

I was barely seventeen summer of seventy-nine
Already I was feeling like I was running out of time
I had this girl we fell in love Or should I say that she had me
Then one fateful night changed our lives And made a memory
When you’re young you always think The sun is going to shine There will come a day When you have to say hello to goodbye
She laid me down she took my hand And looked me in the eye And just before she kissed me she said
You got to live before we die, live before you die
You learn to love to live You fight and you forgive
You learn what’s wrong and right You live before you die

I made mistakes I caught some breaks But I got not regrets
There’s some things I don’t remember But one thing I don’t forget
When you’re young you always think The sun is going to shine
One day you’re going to have to say hello to goodbye
Shout it out let someone somewhere Know that you’re alive
Take these words wear them well
Live before you die Live before you die Hey! Live before you die
You learn to love to live You fight and you forgive You face the darkest night Just live before you die
