“I wrote 'Spend a Life' because I had a kid. For the first time in my life, a timer started and it was counting down the seconds I had left to raise my kid. An 18 year (or less) timer where my moment by moment decisions would affect my tiny human's existence dramatically. That got me thinking about the macro perspective of life. Everyone has a ticking clock from the moment they’re born, and someday that timer is going to go off–and then that’s it. That’s all you get. No resets or 5-minute snoozes–it’s done. And that will have been all the chance the Lord gave you to make a difference in the world around you. That was it. The sudden flash in the pan, that mist of vapor in the air we call 'being alive.' So the point of the song is this: Time is our most precious God-given resource, so let's not spend it like it’s cheap.” -David Dunn
