Heard it in a love song...........

The melody of this song is haunting, the meaning of the song has to do with time. In the innocence of youth, you think you have forever, then at some point love finds you and you start living through your heart, then your family begins and your heart grows larger than you ever expected, then mid life hits and some wonder what happened to their youth and some spend time back at 15, to wonder what might have been? Then in your golden years, you once again realize what life is all about and if your lucky, you'll live long enough to be satisfied with how you lived your life. Its's a very poignant song.

FIVE FOR FIGHTING 

"100 Years"


I'm 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

I'm 22 for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we're on fire
Making our way back from Mars

15 there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

I'm 33 for a moment
Still the man, but you see I'm a they
A kid on the way
A family on my mind

I'm 45 for a moment
The sea is high
And I'm heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life



15 there's still time for you
Time to buy, Time to lose yourself
Within a morning star

15 I'm all right with you
15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

Half time goes by
Suddenly you're wise
Another blink of an eye
67 is gone
The sun is getting high
We're moving on...

I'm 99 for a moment
Dying for just another moment
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are


15 there's still time for you
22 I feel her too
33 you're on your way
Everyday's a new day...

15 there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose
Hey 15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

I love that song, it always brings tears to my eyes whenever I hear it on the radio. It's so poignant and really shows how a person feels as they go through the stages of life.
