Lyrics English

When I was 10 my mom took me to see, the granddad I never met
She said she graduated from high school, a week after his death
I said "If you were only 18, he couldn't have been too old"
Then the wisest words, I ever heard, is when I was told

It's not the years in your life
It's the life in your years
It's not the date your born, or the date you die
It's what you do while you are here
After you pass on, and tears are gone
The only question left to ask
Is how did you live your life
All the days within the dash

My senior year at Missouri State, my world came to an end
A late night, head-on collision, took the life of my girlfriend
How on earth could God let this happen, I could not comprehend
Then I thought of how she, forever changed me, and it made a bit more sense

It's not the years in your life
It's the life in your years
It's not the date your born, or the date you die
It's what you do while you are here
After you pass on, and tears are gone
The only question left to ask
Is how did you live your life
All the days within the dash

When you're staring at a tombstone, and you read the inscripted dates
Think of the time of the line in between, that's when most memories were made

It's not the years in your life
It's the life in your years
It's not the date your born, or the date you die
It's what you do while you are here
After you pass on, and tears are gone
The only question left to ask
Is how did you live your life
All the days within the dash
