This Is Your Life is a song by Newsboys. It is the third track on their album In the Hands of God.

MeaningEdit

'This is a song of encouragement. It's about treating yourself right and forgiving yourself, and if you know you've been forgiven, you can forgive others. There's this conviction inside all of us to live as best we can and to live as full as we can. That's really it: the brevity of life and trying to find the fullness in it.' - Peter Furler (Newsboys) [1]

Lyrics[2]Edit

Lyrics


Verse 1:

This is not the warm-up round

This is not a trial heat

It can’t be repeated when your time is gone

This is not an infinite resource

Or the prelude to a starter course

You don’t send it back if it gets done wrong


Chorus:

This is your life

Treat yourself right

Treat others right

Live like you know you should

This is life

Fight the good fight

Fight for what’s right

Do what you know you should


Verse 2:

Every living soul completes

A finite number of heartbeats

This is not the sum of what you’re here for

Every breath you take will be exhaled

Every rising sun will fall

The measure of it all is what you live for


Chorus:

This is your life

Treat yourself right

Treat others right

Live like you know you should

This is life

Fight the good fight

Fight for what’s right

Do what you know you should


Bridge:

You had a dream, but it got lost in a life of regret

The devil knows you get just one shot

You had a dream, are you still dreaming?

Or did you forget that heaven’s calling for your best shot


Chorus:

This is your life

Treat yourself right

Treat others right

Live like you know you should


This is life

Treat yourself right

Treat others right

Live like you know you should


This is life

Fight the good fight

Fight for what’s right

Do what you know you should


This is life

Treat yourself right

Treat others right

Live like you know you should


This is life

Fight the good fight

Fight for what’s right

Do what you know you should
