First song on the Ipod on a Monday morning commute.  Excellent!


Live Every Moment
Written by Kevin Cronin
Released by REO Speedwagon, 1984



Live every moment, love every day
'Cause before you know it your precious time slips away
Live every moment, love every day
'Cause if you don't you might just throw your love away

I walked for seven miles this mornin', footprints in the sand,
Washed away without a warning when the water hit the land.
But I will walk on 'til I can no longer stand.
I'll take you by the hand, and we'll

Live every moment, love every day
'Cause before you know it your precious time slips away

There's water in the wind tonight.  
There's a chill in the air.
It's coolin' down my skin tonight,
Soakin' through your hair.
There's warmth enough within tonight
For both of us to share.
We can take it anywhere, and we'll

Live every moment, love every day
'Cause before you know it your precious time slips away

Sometimes I wish we could take a trip far away.
Leave all this trouble and heartache and pain for another day.
I will search for that place but 'til I find it all I can say is...

Live every moment, and love every day.

    Excellent choice, Travis. Great words to live by, for sure.

  1. Good thoughts to keep in mind. Not my favorite REO song though. That would be "riding the storm out" You probably guessed that. It's got a good message too.

  1. Great reminder, Trav!

  1. excellent! Enjoy your Tuesday.

    I just came back to listen to the track - it is nothing like I would have imagined from the words and changed how I read them! I had them as a bit whimsical - when in fact it's just fun.
