Life Off My Years

  • Some's born to take life safe and easy,
    I was born to live life on a dare
    I never worried about the fall, y'all,
    Just how high I got in the air
    Flipping dirt bikes and rolling daddy's truck,
    The highs kept me smiling through the tears,
    I'll take years off my life
    Before I'll take life off my years

    There are those who take it slow and steady,
    Happy to keep it between the lines
    Line up their ducks before they're ready,
    I'll have no regrets when it comes my time
    Life's never dealt me any aces,
    But I'm all in double-down no fear
    Yeah I'll take years off my life,
    Before I take life off of my years

    Town water towers and country quarries,
    No trespassing meant come on in
    Skydiving drunk, now there's your story,
    And giving that farmer's bull a spin
    I ain't a fan of going slow around corners,
    Stomp on the gas and grab another gear
    Yeah I'll take years off my life
    Before I'll take life off my years

    I love the view up on this high wire,
    Oh, without a net down below
    While most are running from the wildfires,
    I can't wait to get too close
    What's the use of life if you don't live it?
    You sip your water, I'll drink my beer
    Yeah, I'll take years off my life
    Before I take life off of my years

    I'll take a couple years off of my life,
    Before I take life off of my years Writer/s: ERIC CHURCH, JEFF HYDE, MICHAEL HEENEY
