Note: Chad is verse one, I’m verse two.
This is a song that is very dear to Chad and I. During Spring 2012, Chad wrote “Live It” to make sense of his best friend’s untimely death. Around the same time I had lost a good friend to another tragedy as well. We were both hit with the harsh reality of seeing two of our good friends, so young and with so much life yet to live, taken away from this world so tragically. “Live It’ was our way of coping with the most inevitable part of everyone’s life, death.
“Live It” is a death meditation. For those of you unfamiliar with meditations, a meditation on the subject of death is called a death meditation. Thinking about our death, after we move past the fear of it, lead us to cherishing every moment we have. We don’t like to think about it, but death is ever present. This song helps us to recognize this fact and live in the present moment and indeed, cherish every moment we have as we never know when it will be our time.
I hope this songs helps you as much as it has helped Chad and I.
Live each day like your really alive, you gotta live each day like your really alive.
