If today was your last day....(nickelback song)

I must say, this is a beautiful song, as the lyrics really did it for me. You can't find music like this nowadays. I heard the lyrics one day randomly when I was out somewhere and I love the content...
word...

My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day's 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
And 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
Against the grain should be a way of life
What's worth the prize is always worth the fight
Every second counts 'cause there's no second try
So live like you'll never live it twice
Don't take the free ride in your own life
If today was your last day
And 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?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day
If today was your last day
Would you make your mark by mending 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 nothin' stand in your way
Cause the hands of time are never on your side
If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Unfortunately, when you mention death to some people, or how life is short and you might not see someone ever again, or the last conversation you have with them could be the last one, some say ''if Allah wills it, then it's going to happen"...YES, of course...BUT..also when we are reminded how this life is so temporary and how everything can end, its a reminder to let us know that we have to value every breath we take and realize it isn't promised for tomorrow..that way we should die to each other every night in a positive way, remembering sometimes there aren't 2nd chances...this has to do w/ every aspect of life, not just w/ one...so treat those whom you love, better, for you never know if you or them will be in the shroud next, at a funeral....
