3 Doors Down – It’s Not My Time (album: 3 Doors Down 2008)

This song is by 3 Doors Down. It’s quite a soft song but I love it! This song makes me think about life and how it is important not to waste your energy on day to day stupid things and to focus all your energy on whatever makes you happy, family, friends and everything else you find enjoyable because life is too short and you never know how much time you really have.

I had a few near death experiences in my life, as I mentioned before I was a very naughty girl. When I was around 17, I was hitchhiking with my friends near the town where I lived. We wanted to get to a club and there was no other way to get there but hitchhike. It was late at night and a guy pulled over his car next to us. He looked really dodgy so we decided to give it a miss. We thanked him and asked him to drive away politely. He obviously wouldn’t listen and just parked his car and stared at us for awhile. Back then I had a really big mouth and I wasn’t afraid of anything. Of course I started swearing at him. I said some awful things towards him. He got really mad and came out of his car with a gun. He pointed his gun to my head. I started shaking and my first instinct was to hide behind one of my friends and point her towards the gun. I feel very ashamed of my reaction. Until today, I don’t know why I’ve reacted the way I did. I guess you never really know how you’re going to react until you are put in a shitty situation like this. All my friends were panicking except for one really brave friend that I admire for what she has done. She approached the guy and said “put away your gun, look at this stupid little girl, is it really worth doing time for her?” the man listened to my friend and got into his car and drove away. I was saved! Thanks A for saving my butt that day I think it was a very heroic move, sorry E for making you my human shield didn’t mean to. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this time limited song...

What’s this song about?
Here is a comment from Songfacts Website:
This song was originally written, says 3DD Frontman Brad Arnold, for the remake of the movie The Poseidon Adventure. Says Arnold: “it was gonna be a track on that movie. In the movie, they’re just trying to escape their death. And there’s a ship sinking. They showed me like a 30-second clip of the movie and I went and wrote that song from it. And they wound up not wanting it, so I like, cool we’ll keep it.
