  • Lyrics: DAYS WITHIN THE DASH When I was 10 my mom took me to see, the granddad I never met She said she graduated from high school, a week after his death I said “If you were only 18, he couldn’t have been too old” Then the wisest words, I ever heard, is when I was told It’s not the years in your life It’s the life in your years It’s not the date your born, or the date you die It’s what you do while you are here After you pass on, and tears are gone The only question left to ask Is how did you live your life All the days within the dash My senior year at Missouri State, my world came to an end A late night, head-on collision, took the life of my girlfriend How on earth could God let this happen, I could not comprehend Then I thought of how she, forever changed me, and it made a bit more sense It’s not the years in your life It’s the life in your years It’s not the date your born, or the date you die It’s what you do while you are here After you pass on, and tears are gone The only question left to ask Is how did you live your life All the days within the dash When you’re staring at a tombstone, and you read the inscripted dates Think of the time of the line in between, that’s when most memories were made It’s not the years in your life It’s the life in your years It’s not the date your born, or the date you die It’s what you do while you are here After you pass on, and tears are gone The only question left to ask Is how did you live your life All the days within the dash
