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
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
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 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 hundred years to live

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

It's funny how this song, when only heard as 'background music' (*as it often is), sounds like just another happy little song they might play on a loop at your local CVS... and in a lot of ways, it IS that 'happy little song'... but yet, it is SO much more.

However, (and if you have read this far), when a 'deeper listen' is applied to this modern masterpiece, you soon realize this song delivers quite a deeply emotional & moving message.

And those of us who are lucky enough to have taken the time to pause, and really absorb & ponder the deep meaning of this song's masterfully written lyrics, are rewarded with the telling of the story of a man lucky enough to have lived a full life - not just in terms of quantity (100 years), but of quality.

I hope to, one day, to have lived, loved, & died as the 'the truly blessed man' that he sings about in this bittersweet song.

And happily (or perhaps it's actually sadly), I'm about half-way there.

note: This is one of a handful of songs that can often bring me to tears. And I feel that if a song can evoke such strong emotions/feelings, especially from the tear ducts of a middle-aged man as myself, then that songwriter is basically.... a legend!

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

Chasing the years of my life
Fifteen there's still time for you
Time to buy, time to lose yourself

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

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

Felt like 6th grade was just yesterday for me, yet I'm going into 12th grade in a few days.... I let my childhood fly by.
