  • Thirty nine candles burnt out on a cake
    Each representing a million mistakes
    The last one still burns, there's a wish I can make
    This time I'm getting it right
    So I close my eyes and I take a deep breath
    And I promise myself in the time I have left

    [Chorus]
    I'm gonna work like I don't need the money
    I'm gonna laugh like I'm not afraid to cry
    I'm gonna dance like nobody's watching
    I'm gonna love while I still got the time

    Loving me hasn't been easy on you
    I don't know why, but I know you still do
    It may be my day, but here's a present for you
    You're looking at your new man
    He's sincere and sober and faithful and kind
    And he's home when you need him and girl starting tonight

    [Chorus]

    No more excuses and no more me doing things wrong
    Life is too short, baby, I've wasted ours for too long
    And baby from now on

    [Chorus]

    I'm gonna work like I don't need the money I know I am
    I'm gonna laugh like I'm not afraid to cry laugh laugh laugh
    I'm gonna dance like nobody's watching I'm gonna dance I'm gonna dance
    I'm gonna love while I still got the time
    I'm gonna love while I still got the time
