Three-Day Lyrical Challenge – Day 2

We are on Day 2 of the Three-Day Lyrical Challenge where I was tagged by Sonali. Do check out her blog here.

Today, I’m tagging Mariam, Karen and The_Aestheticspirit.

And my second song is:

100 Years by Five for Fighting

I’m fifteen for a moment
Caught in between ten and twenty
And I’m just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
I’m twenty two for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we’re on fire
Making our way back from Mars
Fifteen there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
Fifteen, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got hundred years to live
I’m thirty three for a moment
Still the man, but you see I’m of age
A kid on the way
A family on my mind
I’m forty five for a moment
The sea is high
And I’m heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life
Fifteen there’s still time for you
Time to buy, time to lose yourself
Within a morning star
Fifteen I’m all right with you
Fifteen, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got hundred years to live
Half time goes by
Suddenly you’re wise
Another blink of an eye
Sixty seven is gone
The sun is getting high
We’re moving on
I’m ninety nine for a moment
Dying for just another moment
And I’m just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
Fifteen there’s still time for you
Twenty two I feel her too
Thirty three you’re on your way
Every day’s a new day
Fifteen there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose
Hey fifteen, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got hundred years to live.

Well, this song could be interpreted in different ways but no matter how you look at it, there’s a very profound meaning. I probably wouldn’t have cared about this song when I was 15 for I still didn’t have enough context about life yet to understand it well. I understood it quite better and appreciate it a lot more as I grow older and thus became one of my all-time favorites.
