Bucket List


Climb a mountain, swim the seven seas
Get your body to look like Hercules
Jump out an airplane with a parachute
Fly up and away on a hot air balloon

We don’t know where it all ends
Some say it’s almost over, almost over
If this is it then baby why aren’t I on your shoulder?
On your shoulder?

CHORUS: In this lifetime
I want you to be mine
Cuz I took a long look at my bucket list
And I saw that at the bottom it said our first kiss and
Whoa I’m running out of time
Whoa I’m running out of time

Get on your boots and visit the North Pole
Try every sport until you score a goal
Follow the path of a butterfly
Go to *Ground Zero" and do nothing but cry

We don't know how much time left we've got left in this world
This beautiful world

CHORUS: In this lifetime
I want you to be mine
Cuz I took a long look at my bucket list
And I saw that at the bottom it said our first kiss and
Whoa I’m running out of time
Whoa I’m running out of time

This is not a dare
Not some trick of a daredevil
I’d trade in my wildest dreams
For your forever

CHORUS; In this lifetime
I want you to be mine
Cuz I took a long look at my bucket list
And I saw that at the bottom it said our first kiss and
'Cause I took a long look at my bucket list
And I found that at the bottom it said our first kiss and
Whoa I’m running out of time
Whoa I’m running out of time
Whoa I’m running out of time
Whoa I’m running out of time

*Ground Zero is the site of 9/11---the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001

songwriter: Darkchild and Nelly Furtado

performed by: Nelly Furtado

date released: 2012 by Nelly Furtado

Furtado was born on December 2, 1978, in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Her Portuguese parents, Maria Manuela and António José Furtado, were both immigrants from the Azores and emigrated to Canada in the late 1960s.

Nelly was named after Soviet gymnast Nellie Kim. At age four, she began performing and singing in her native Portuguese language. Furtado's first public performance was when she sang a duet with her mother at a church on Portugal Day. She began playing musical instruments at the age of nine, learning the trombone, ukulele and – in later years – the guitar and keyboards. At 12, she began writing songs,and as a teenager, she spent eight summers working as a chambermaid with her mother, along with her brother and sister, who was a housekeeper in Victoria.

Furtado is proud of her working-class background. She has stated that coming from a working-class background has shaped her identity in a positive way.

Furtado is known for her signature, "Whoa Nellie,' and in this song, she doesn't disappoint.
She sighs a big "whoa", takes pause and reflects on the transience of life. Life should be cherished so why not accomplish all your goals before your time passes?
