Morning IPOD #9 - Seasons of Love


My favorite song from Rent: Seasons of Love (525,600 minutes). Here it is with the closing night cast on Broadway.



Seasons Of Love lyrics
Songwriter: Jonathan Larson


Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes,
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Moments so dear

Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights
In cups of coffee
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife

In five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure a year in the life?

How about love? How about love?
How about love? Measure in love

Seasons of love
Seasons of love

Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Journeys to plan

Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure the life
Of a woman or a man?

In truths that she learned
Or in times that he cried
In bridges he burned
Or the way that she died

It's time now to sing out
Tho' the story never ends
Let's celebrate
Remember a year in the life of friends

Remember the love
(Oh you got to, got to)
Remember the love
(Remember the love)
Seasons of love
(Measure measure you life in love)
Seasons of love
Seasons of love

Waking up to Hugh Jackman is never a bad thing! Definitely something to get your blood boiling and your heart pumping!

Did you say Hugh Jackman? I lost all train of thought after that.

The name just seems to do something to your attention span, doesn't it? :-)

I wish y'all would quit talking about Hugh Jackman. I'm drooling on the keyboard again...
