My name is Emma and i'm a 20 year old student from Melbourne, Australia. I'm currently studying to become a teacher and i will graduate from La Trobe University in 2005.

Next year i plan to participate in the CAMP USA programme before partying it up in California, Canada and New York city with some of my best mates.

This song pretty much sums up the kind of person i am. I try and live life to the absoloute fullest; work hard, play even harder!

Live like you were dying - Tim McGraw

He said, I was in my early 40's with a lot of life before me
When a moment came that stopped me on a dime
I spent most of the next days, looking at the X-rays
Talking 'bout the options, and talking 'bout sweet time

I asked him, When it sank in that this might really be the real end
How's it hit ya when you get that kind of news?
Man, what'd ya do?

He said...
I went skydiving, I went rocky mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named Blu Manchu
And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I'd been denying
And he said, Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin'

He said, I was finally the husband that most of the time I wasn't
And I became a friend a friend would like to have
And all of a sudden goin' fishin wasn't such an imposition
And I went 3 times that year I lost my dad
Well I, I finally read the good book
And I took a good long hard look
At what I'd do if I could do it all again
And then...

I went skydiving, I went rocky mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named Blu Manchu
And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I'd been denying
And he said, Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin'

Like tomorrow was a gift
And you got eternity to think about what you do with it
What could you do with it?
What can I do with it?
What would I do with it?

Skydiving, I went rocky mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named Blu Manchu
And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
And I watched an eagle as it was flying
And he said, Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin'
