100 Years
Five for Fighting Lyrics


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
And 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 a hundred years to live

I'm thirty-three for a moment
I'm still the man, but you see I'm of age
A kid on the way, babe
A family on my mind
I'm forty-five for a moment
The sea is high
And I'm headin' into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life

Fifteen, there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose yourself
Within a morning star
Fifteen, I'm alright with you
Fifteen, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got a hundred years to live

Half time goes by
Suddenly you're wise
Another blink of an eye
Sixty-seven is gone
The sun is gettin' high
We're movin' on

I'm ninety-nine for a moment
And dyin' 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
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

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 a hundred years to live

LYRICS
I'm 15 for a moment
Caught in between ten and 20
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
I'm 22 for a moment
And 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've only got a hundred years to live
I'm 33 for a moment
I'm still the man, but you see I'm a "they"
A kid on the way, babe
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 and time to lose yourself within a morning star
15, I'm alright with you
15
There's never a wish better than this
When you've only got a hundred 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
And 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
Every day's a new day
Ooh-ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo-hoo
Ooh-ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo-hoo
Ooh-ooh-hoo, ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo
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've only got a hundred years to live

I was 25 when this song came out and I thought I was invincible. Now I'm 42. Savor every moment, kids. It all passes so quickly. Don't fall into routine. Challenge yourselves. And most importantly, don't be afraid to love.

@Joseph Matello If I had that wish I would wish to be 28. Young enough to start over, old enough to know better. Not to make as many mistakes.

Iam 52 and I wish I was 42 again

Amen! I told my kids the same thing many time when they were young. Like the rest of us, it took until they grew up before they realized it was true.

I am 68. Keep moving forward. Don't ever be afraid to try new things. Most important, do the right thing, help other people when you can.

I heard this on the way to the hospital when I was on my way to deliver my son a month before I turned 22. I gave birth to him on 07/20/04. Tomorrow he'll be celebrating his 18th birthday. Next month I'll be turning 40. This song brings back so many beautiful memories & moments for me. Thank you!🥰
