  • He kissed his wife at gate number 5
    Headed on another red-eye flight
    Said he'd be back on the 9th and they'd find the time
    To take the kids out on the coast
    Do the things that really matter most
    But he won't be coming home
    This time

    Guess you never know
    You never know
    In this here today and gone tomorrow
    Don't be fightin' with your brother
    Tell your mama that you love her
    Hold your woman tight
    And don't let go
    'Cause you never know

    So I took my own advice
    And I held my woman tight
    I cry about my brother's life almost every night
    I think about our year-long grudge
    Mama begged me to call him up
    What I wouldn't give now
    To go back

    'Cause you never know
    You never know
    In this here today and gone tomorrow
    Don't be fightin' with your brother
    Tell your mama that you love her
    Hold your woman tight
    And don't let go
    'Cause you never know

    If you've been puttin' off forgiveness
    Man, tomorrow ain't a promise
    Call 'em up tonight and let it go
    'Cause you never know Writer/s: BILLY RYAN, JIMMY YEARY, MIKE MCGUIRE
