Favorite Quote:
"In the end, it's still best to wait for the one we want rather than settle for what's available. It's still best to wait for the one you love rather than to settle for the one who's around. It's still best to wait for the right person, because life's too short to waste on the wrong one."


(Verse 1)
I close my little eyes and,
count one...two...three.
I tag them by my hand.
Now they count by the tree.

(Verse 2)
I stand in front of my class and,
count eight...nine...ten.
I pick the next one to stand.
Now they begin.

(Chorus)
Life is such a precious gift to throw away.
Live, laugh, and love everyone.
Enjoy what you have everyday.
Live and be as bright as the sun.

(Verse 3)
I look at my exam paper and,
count thirteen...fourteen...fifteen.
I studied so hard yet I guess I don’t understand.
Now they want a school work vaccine.

(Verse 4)
I look at the calendar and,
count three...two...one.
I am out of high school with cash in hand!
Now they have some fun.

(Chorus)
Life is such a precious gift to throw away.
Live, laugh, and love everyone.
Enjoy what you have everyday.
Live and be as bright as the sun.

(Verse 5)
I look around me and,
count twenty-six...twenty-seven...twenty-eight.
I know who is sitting at the Right hand.
Now they celebrate.

(Chorus)
Life is such a precious gift to throw away.
Live, laugh, and love everyone.
Enjoy what you have everyday.
Live and be as bright as the sun.


The author's comments:
I know it doesn't sound like a song when you just read it but if somehow you could hear how I wanted it to sound you would love it...the chorus is slow. Please comment if you have time. I would appreciate the inputs, good or bad.
