  2. If Today Was Your Last Day - Nickelback Dark Horse


    My best friend gave me the best advice 
    He said each days a gift and not a given right 
    Leave no stone unturned 
    Leave your fears behind 
    And try to take the path less traveled by 
    That first step you take is the longest stride 

    If today was your last day 
    If tomorrow was too late 
    Could you say goodbye to yesterday 
    Would you live each moment like your last 
    Leave old pictures in the past 
    Donate every dime you have 
    If today was your last day 

    Going against the grain should be a way of life 
    What’s worth the price is always worth the fight 
    Every second counts cause there’s no second try 
    So live it like you’re never living twice 
    Don’t take the free ride in your whole life 

    If today was your last day 
    If tomorrow was too late 
    Could you say goodbye to yesterday 
    Would you live each moment like your last 
    Leave old pictures in the past 
    Donate every dime you have 
    And would you call old friends you never see 
    Reminisce old memories 
    Would you forgive your enemies 
    And would you find that one your dreaming of 
    Swear up and down to god above 
    That you’ll finally fall in love 
    If today was your last day 

    If today was your last day 
    Would you make your mark 
    On ending a broken heart 
    You know it’s never too late 
    To shoot for the stars 
    Regardless of who you are 
    So do whatever it takes 
    Cause you can’t rewind 
    A moment in this life 
    Let nothing stand in your way 
    Cause the hands of time 
    Are never on your side 

    If today was your last day 
    If tomorrow was too late 
    Could you say goodbye to yesterday 
    Would you live each moment like your last 
    Leave old pictures in the past 
    Donate every dime you have 
    And would you call old friends you never see 
    Reminisce old memories 
    Would you forgive your enemies 
    And would you find that one your dreaming of 
    Swear up and down to god above 
    That you’ll finally fall in love 
    If today was your last day

  3. Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park Meteora


    Memories consume 
    Like opening the wound 
    I’m picking me apart again 
    You all assume 
    I’m safe here in my room 
    Unless I try to start again… 

    I don’t want to be the one 
    The battles always choose 
    'Cause inside I realize 
    That I’m the one confused 

    I don’t know what’s worth fighting for 
    Or why I have to scream 
    I don’t know why I instigate 
    And say what I don’t mean 
    I don’t know how I got this way 
    I know it’s not alright 
    So I’m breaking the habit 
    I’m breaking the habit tonight 

    Clutching my cure 
    I tightly lock the door 
    I try to catch my breath again 
    I hurt much more 
    Than anytime before 
    I had no options left again… 

    I don’t want to be the one 
    The battles always choose 
    'Cause inside I realize 
    That I’m the one confused 

    I don’t know what’s worth fighting for 
    Or why I have to scream 
    I don’t know why I instigate 
    And say what I don’t mean 
    I don’t know how I got this way 
    I’ll never be alright 
    So I’m breaking the habit 
    I’m breaking the habit tonight 

    I’ll paint it on the walls 
    'Cause I'm the one at fault 
    I’ll never fight again 
    And this is how it ends 

    I don’t know what’s worth fighting for 
    Or why I have to scream 
    But now I have some clarity 
    To show you what I mean 
    I don’t know how I got this way 
    I’ll never be alright 
    So I’m breaking the habit 
    I’m breaking the habit 
    I’m breaking the habit tonight
