Your Life Will Change After Listening To Scotty McCreery’s “Five More Minutes”

There is such a powerful message within the lyrics of “Five More Minutes.”

Y’all may have heard it right here on Whiskey Riff. Scotty McCreery’s unreleased song “Five More Minutes” has been making waves since last summer. All who have heard it are begging for it to be his next single because it is so damn good. Written after McCreery’s grandfather passed, there is a raw and powerful message that this song brings. This message will change your life.

There is no pause button in life.

You absolutely cannot take the time that you have been given for granted. Time doesn’t stop. As much as we wish we could just pause and live in the moment of the good times forever, life doesn’t work like that. We wish we could at least have “five more minutes.”

Soak up every second.

Moments like fishing as a kid, front porch kissin’, the last Friday night lights, and spending the last moments with a loved one… Those are all unforgettable moments that will impact your life for eternity. Even though these moments many be short, they are not to be wasted. Every second you have been given is a blessing. You don’t know when the good Lord will call you home, and there are times you can’t have just “five more minutes.” So, soak it all in. Every moment—the good and the bad.

Read these the lyrics, and have a listen for yourself. You’ll know what I’m talking about.

Eight years old a couple cane poles sitting down by the creek
Our lines in the water watching those bobbers seeing that red sun sink
Mama’s on the porch yelling supper’s hot, y’all come and get it
We yelled five more minutes.
At sixteen it was twelve o three standing at her front door
Katie’s dad said midnight, but we needed just a little more
Yellow light flipping on and off and we’re up to that goodnight kissing
We wanted five more minutes

Time rolls by the clock don’t stop
I wish I had a few more drops
Of the good stuff, the good times
Oh but they just keep on flying
Right on by like it ain’t nothing
Wish I had me a pause button
Moments like those Lord knows I’d hit it
Give myself five more minutes

At eighteen turned my helmet in and walked to the fifty yard line
It’s just the coach and me after we lost eighteen to nine
And I cried man next time to get in here I’ll have to buy a ticket
Can’t you give me five more minutes

Time rolls by the clock don’t stop
I wish I had a few more drops
Of the good stuff, the good times
Oh but they just keep on flying
Right on by like it ain’t nothing
Wish I had me a pause button
Moments like those Lord knows I’d hit it
Give myself five more minutes

At eighty-six my grandpa said there’s angels in the room
With all the family gathered ’round we knew that time was coming soon
With so much left to say I prayed Lord I ain’t finished
Just give us five more minutes

Time rolls by the clock don’t stop
I wish I had a few more drops
Of the good stuff, the good times
Oh but they just keep on flying
Right on by like it ain’t nothing
Wish I had me a pause button
Moments like those Lord knows I’d hit it
Yeah sometimes this all life will leave you wishing
That you had five more minutes
Oh five more minutes
