Kris Allen’s New Single – “Live Like We’re Dying” World Premiere! [FULL download]

September 21, 2009

Get this. Kris Allen just released his first single, “Live Like We’re Dying” on Z100 New York! (Listen: HERE) The song just ended, the radio jockeys are interviewing Kris now. I’m going to be incomprehensible starting now because I’m so excited!

My thoughts on the song: It was AMAZING. It’s the sort of stuff you want to listen to when you’re down, feeling low or alone. The track is very fun, very uplifting and it just raises your spirit. You can’t help but dance along with it (at least I did). It spreads a good message: live everyday like you’re dying, capture every moment cause it’s precious, and to love everyone around you. Also, I like that the song has a summer jam to it (even though summer is almost over) and the chorus is super upbeat. It’s sort of like a rap, but you’re actually singing. The whole vibe of the song is very Jason Mraz-ish, with lots of guitarΒ  playing in the background. If you’re into Jason Mraz’s smooth soulful tunes (read: “The Remedy“, you’d have no problem with this one.Β  Overall: great stuff. A+

ETA4: Lyrics to the song!

Sometimes we fall down, Can’t get back up
We’re hidin’ behind skin that’s too tough
How come we dont say I love you enough
Til its too late…. its not too late

Our hearts are hungry for a food that won’t come
But we could make a feast from these crumbs
And we’re all starin’ down the barrel of a gun
So if your life flashed before you what would you wish you would have done

Gotta start

Looking at the hands of the time we been given
If this is all we got then we gotta start thinkin’
If every second counts on the clock thats tickin’
Gotta live like we’re dyin’
We only got 864 hundred seconds in a day
To turn it all around or to throw it all away
Gotta tell em that we love em while we got the chance to say
Live like we’re dyin’

And if your plane fell out of the skies
Who would you call with your last goodbye
Should be so careful who we let fall out of our lives
Or when we long for absolution there’ll be no one on the line

You never know a good thing til its gone
You never see a crash til its head on
Wny do we think we’re right when we’re dead wrong
You never know a good thing til its gone


Enjoy! Please leave comments! What are your thoughts on the song?



  1. loved it! muwhahaha. [:

  2. his version is nice but i still like the original version by the script.
    also, i don’t really like the fact that he’s just covering an old song for his first single.

    i’ll still listen to any song sang by kris allen tho. love his voice.

  3. I LOVE ANTM!!!
    I would love Laura, Rae, or Brittany to win!

    I also like Survivor and would love Mick or Eric?/Erin? to win

  4. Hey! I don’t like Kris Allen too much, but I wanted to listeng to his single…
    I’m pretty upset with the producers who worked with Kris, because they choosed a cover for his first single.

    I prefer The Script’s version, but Kris’ isn’t bad at all.
