  • Yeah, I hate that the only way
    I can say what I need to say
    Is with a prayer I hope is gettin' through the clouds
    Now, you're forever young
    And I'm livin' like I'm dyin'
    All I'm doing is just trying to make you proud

    Yeah, life is like a first kiss
    You don't know how long it's gonna last
    All you get is what you get
    And it gets real really fast

    I'ma love a little more, dream a little deeper
    Leave all the leavers, keep all the keepers
    Find peace of mind in the time the good Lord gives
    I'ma cross one off, put two more on it
    Say, "I love you" 'fore the moment's gone
    And never have to ask myself, "What if"
    When I get to the bottom of my bucket list

    Mine used to look real petty
    Was the picture in the dictionary
    Of the guy that wasn't ready to grow up
    And all it took was a last goodbye
    A broken heart on borrowed time
    And letting go of things that are hard to let go of

    Now I love a little more, dream a little deeper
    Leave all the leavers, keep all the keepers
    Find peace of mind in the time the good Lord gives
    I'ma cross one off, put two more on it
    Say, "I love you" 'fore the moment's gone
    And never have to ask myself, "What if"
    When I get to the bottom of my bucket list, yeah

    (Oh)
    (Oh)

    Yeah, life is like a first kiss
    You don't know how long it's gonna last
    All you get is what you get
    And it gets real really fast

    I'ma love a little more, dream a little deeper
    Leave all the leavers, keep all the keepers
    Find peace of mind in the time the good Lord gives
    I'ma cross one off, put two more on it
    Say, "I love you" 'fore the moment's gone
    And never have to ask myself, "What if"
    When I get to the bottom of my bucket list, yeah
    (Oh)
    The bottom of my bucket list
    (Oh)

    (Ooh)
    (Ooh)
