100 Years

Ini lirik lagunya 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
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

This is an old song, but it made me realize, how fast time flies by. Feeling so long, hoping it would go faster, it is so fast we wouldn't realize its passing. The time will come, when I look back and see what I've done. Were those things deserved my time? Did I do what was need to be done? Or did I do trash just to satisfy my more-than-enough ego? What will I do with the time I have left? Will I die a useless being?

This is the time to rethink about time management.

One day in 2007, when I was on a day off, I woke up in the morning after having a dream of being able to come back to the past. That day, I was too excited to realize that it was just a dream, so I began to make a list of what I'll do, wishing it will come to pass!! what a foolish hope to be hoped for. It took me a busy whole day of day dreaming!! Even when I had my breakfast, lunch, or when I took a bath, I kept thinking about it. Eventually, at night, I realized that I didn't do anything for the whole day but wasting time dreaming of the impossible. When I knew it couldn't be true, I felt sorry for what I've done in the past 19 years (I was 19 when I got the dream), how much I've missed, how much time I've wasted for unnecessary things, irrational deeds. I know I couldn't stay the same. I don't want, ever again, to wake up from that same dream, and still regret what I've done. No more regrets!!

Time won't come back no matter what we do, so use it wisely.
