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 youÂ’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 youÂ’re on your way
Every day'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"


In my opinion, this song by Five for Fighting is very true. We don't realize that we don't have that much time to live our lives. Like me; I can't believe that I am already the age that I am. I know that I'm not that old but a year passes quickly. My mother has raised me with some good morals and phrases to live by. One includes "Carpe diem." The meaning of these few Latin words to me is "If you died within the next hour, would you regret not having done it?" That's how I ended up with my first boyfriend. When you die, what do you want to have accomplished? What would you want to be remembered for? What would you want to be considered your greatest accomplishment? I still don't know my answers to these questions and even though I regret the results of some of the choices I have made, I don't regret the person I have become as a consequence.

Great song.
My son is 15. Just yesterday it seems that he was a newborn.
I'm 40. It seems like I was 15 yesterday.
My father's 69, and I can remember him being 40 and in good health.
All of my grandparents are dead. I only have pictures of them.
What you want in life, go for it now! Tomorrow is a lot sooner than you think. It sounds cliche, but it's true.
Peace,
