Dierks Bentley Releases New Video for Introspective Track ‘Living’

Dierks Bentley has dropped a new video for his inspirational track “Living.” Instead of opening with Bentley singing, a woman is seen sharing her story of dealing with hearing loss. Her impactful monologue perfectly leads into Bentley’s lyrics as she says, “I just want to take it all in as much as I can.”

Overall, “Living” is a musically simple track, but Bentley packs in reflective lyrics that match perfectly with the fantastic nature backdrops and shots of daily life in the video. While Bentley sings about appreciating the simple, wonderful things around us, he also adds a more realistic expectation by saying this level of introspection happens “some days.” He conveys that perhaps each day of your life you aren’t able to soak in every aspect of the world around you, but “some days” it’s worth taking the moment to step back and absorb all of the things we take for granted.

“Living” will be featured on Bentley’s new album The Mountain,  which will be released on June 8. The record draws inspiration from the mountains of Colorado ,which Bentley fell in love with while playing the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. It marks a more personal and introspective time in Bentley’s career.

“Living” Lyrics:

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 clearSome days you’re just breathin’
Just tryin 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’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”Some days you just breathin’
Just tryin’ 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’

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

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’

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
