We Only Have Today

Written by Nick Akin

V1

Every breath we take is closer to our last

Every second fades to moments of the past

Don’t let life slip away and watch the wind

Blow all the pages over

We may not have much longer

 

CHORUS

Start living like you only have today

Make a difference in a life that comes your way

We’ve gotta stop pretending doing nothing is okay

And start living like we only have today

We only have today

 

V2

She just walked passed me her husband just walked out

He filled my coffee his life is filled with doubt

Another simple opportunity to be

What God has called me to be

And now it’s up to me

 

CHORUS 2

To start living like I only have today

To Make a difference in a life that comes my way

I’ve gotta stop pretending doing nothing is okay

And start living like I only have today

We only have today

 

BRIDGE

When the curtain closes on your life

It’s not gonna matter what you drive

Or where you live, or how popular you are

People all around us need a friend

We’ve got to look outside this box we’re in

And see a world that needs the love of Christ
