about

A straight-strummin' love song about mortality. Written and recorded June 2013. Featuring harmony vocals from Lucy Lawless (Xena the Warrior Princess).

lyrics

Don’t have a bucket list
What the hell does that mean, anyway?
You can't collect experience, it just flows on through
But yes, I'd like to travel
And sure, I'd take a class with you
I think I've got a life's worth of time saved up, let's do it, do it

Are there some things we should do before we die?
Things we should say and show or at least try

I don't want to think about it
I don't like to talk about it
I don't like to measure out my life, because it's overflowing
Don't want to live without you
Don't want to die at all
You know I hate clichés, and love and death are the biggest ones of all

But there are things we should do before we die.
Things we should get around to before we die

Of course you know I love you
Although there’s always some regret
That language always fails us
But it’s enough, I guess
Can I ever really show you
That you own me heart and soul
You are my inspiration, you’ve got me through and through

Things we should say and do before we die
Things that we've got to prove or at least try

Part of being wide awake is dealing with God’s big mistake
And trying to take in everything we can together
But it’s never never near enough, whatever we may do
However hard we chew on life, I know I will lose you

Keep at the things we should do before we die, my oh my.
Even if dwelling upon them makes you cry, my oh my
These are some things we should do before we die, why oh why
Things we should say and show or at least try

Thank you, dear, for listening, and being all my bliss
We’ll deal with the inevitable, and try to be okay with this

These are the things we should do before we die, my oh my
These are some things we should do before we die, my oh my
