“’Living’ certainly celebrates life’s big moments and adventures, but for me it’s even more about being intentional and present in everyday moments,” Bentley said in a statement. “Knox is at that age where he can still find the biggest joy in the smallest things, and that childlike appreciation for life is the spirit I wanted to bring to this video to remind us of difference between just being alive and actually ‘living.’”

 

The concept of a father-son play date seems simple, but it took time for Bentley to actually visualize “Living,” since the song lends itself to so many directions. He notes he was “dragging his feet” on making a video because he just wasn’t excited about any of the ideas that were pitched to him — until the Knox idea popped up. However, now dad has some explaining to do to his two daughters Jordan and Evelyn.

Living – Dierks Bentley

 

[Verse 1]
This mornin’ I got up at 6:01
I walked out and saw the rising sun
And I drank it in like whiskey
I saw a tree I’ve seen a thousand times
A bird on a branch and I watched it fly away in the wind
And it hit me
It’s a beautiful world sometimes I don’t see so clear

[Chorus]
Some days you just breath in
Just try to break even
Sometimes your heart’s poundin’ out of your chest
Sometimes it’s just beatin’
Some days you just forget
What all you’ve been given
Some days you just get by
And some days you’re just alive
Some days you’re livin’
Some days you’re livin’

[Verse 2]
I went back in and fired the coffee up
She walked in the kitchen like she always does
In my t-shirt and it killed me
And I kissed her like it was the first time
She laughed and looked at me like I’d lost my mind
I said “Baby, I love you, can’t live without you, I know I don’t say it enough”

 

 

[Chorus]
Some days you just breath in
Just try to break even
Sometimes your heart’s poundin’ out of your chest
Sometimes it’s just beatin’
Some days you just forget
What all you’ve been given
Some days you just get by
And some days you’re just alive
Some days you’re livin’
Some days you’re livin’

[Post-Chorus]
Like you never die
Blue’s a little bluer up in the sky
You’re high’s a little high
You feel that fire you’ve been missing
Some days you’re living

It’a beautiful world sometimes I don’t see so clear

[Chorus]
Some days you start singin’
And you don’t need a reason
Sometimes the world’s just right
Your clear eyes ain’t even blinkin’
Got a heart full of grateful
For all you’ve been given
Some days you just get by
Yeah some days you’re just alive
Some days you’re livin’
Some days you’re livin’

[Post-Chorus]
Livin’ like you’ll never die
Blue’s a little bluer up in the sky
You’re high’s a little high
You feel that fire you’ve been missin’
Some days you’re living
Some days you’re living
