What if I told you that your time was up
That as every second passes there's a moment gone
In 23 hours the sun was going to set forever
Would you hug a little tighter would you let go first
Would you focus on love and then forget the hurt
Live in the moment or wish your life away

How would you spend your last night on earth
Would you kiss your enemies
Say sorry first
Would you take enough time to say your last goodbyes
All the little battles that you never won
All the music and the opera never sung
Emotions that were silent all these years

You can't smell the roses when you're gone
You can't smell the roses
No it's not a rehearsal
You only got one life to make it right
You can't smell the roses when you're gone
So live every moment like it's the last night on earth
Because this is the last night on earth

What if I told you that I had regrets
I would trade in all my happiness for one last kiss
For a minute or two lying by you side
What if I chose the road nobody walked
If I honoured all my promises with empty talk
If I knew back then the things that I know now

I would tell you that I love you that we all get low
There are peaks and there are valleys but you've got to know
A second chance, it rarely comes around

You can't smell the roses when you're gone
You can't smell the roses
No it's not a rehearsal
You only got one life to make it right
You can't smell the roses when you're gone
So live every moment like it's the last night on earth

If I could have my time again
I would make sure you knew just how I felt
Because I went away for much too long
And the seasons changed without me

You can't smell the roses when you're gone
You can't smell the roses
No it's not a rehearsal
You only got one life to make it right
You can't smell the roses when you're gone
So live every moment like it's the last night on earth
As if it's the last night on earth
Because this is the last night on earth
