Matthew West - 'What If' (Official Music Video)

Matthew West has crafted a song whose title has two simple words - which profoundly shape how we view the value of our lives - "What If?".  Making the most of the time, while your story is still being written.

"What if I lived for God...what if I sought help and healing...what if I stepped in the fullness of God's plan for my life," Matthew comments about the song.  "I want to answer that question NOW, while I still have a chance to change the things that need to change."  

Watch Matthew's official music video of "What If", and live a life that has no regrets! 

What If Lyrics

I’ve heard ‘em say before to live just like you’re dying yeah
Wish I could say that’s how I am but I’d be lying yeah
And lying in my bed at night one too many times just thinking
What if, what if

My biggest fear is waking up to find what matters
Is miles away from what I spent my life chasing after
Is my story gonna have the same two words in every chapter?
What if, what if

But last I checked this heart inside my chest
Is still beating
Well I guess it’s not too late

What if today’s the only day I got?
I don’t wanna waste it if it’s my last shot
No regret,s in the end
I wanna know I got no what ifs
I’m running till the road runs out
I’m lighting it up right here right now
No regrets, in the end
I wanna know I got no what ifs, yeah

See I refuse to be a should a would a could a been
I can’t go back in time I don’t have a DeLorean
What I’m trying to say is I don’t wanna hear these words again
What if, what if

But last I checked this heart inside my chest
Is still beating
Well I guess it’s not too late, No No

What if today’s the only day I got?
I don’t wanna waste it if it’s my last shot
No regrets, in the end
I wanna know I got no what ifs
I’m running till the road runs out
I’m lighting it up right here right now
No regrets, in the end
I wanna know I got no what ifs

I’m gonna dream a little bigger
Burn a little brighter
Stand a little taller, closer to Your fire

Dig a little deeper
Reach a little further
Love a little harder

I’m gonna dream a little bigger
Burn a little brighter
Stand a little taller, closer to Your fire

Dig a little deeper
Reach a little further
Love a little harder

What if today’s the only day I got?
I don’t wanna waste it if it’s my last shot
No regrets, in the end
I wanna know I got no what ifs
I’m running till the road runs out
I’m lighting it up right here right now
No regrets, in the end
I wanna know I got no what ifs, yeah
