Rent

525,600 MINUTES


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!
Remember the love!
Seasons of love!


Oh you got to got to Remember the love! remember the love,
You Measure in love know that love is a gift from up above
Seasons of love. Share love, give love spread love Measure measure you life in love.




My boyfriend Cory has been telling me for so
long now that I would love watching Rent. He brought it over last week and we sat and watched it together. What an incredible movie. The story, the music - every single thing about it spoke to me. It touched me more than I thought could be possible. It made me laugh. It made me cry.
Listening to this song 525.600 minutes really spoke to my heart. It made me think of every minute of my life. Made me want to live all those minutes with love, with laughter, with happiness, with freedom, with friends, and with family. It made me just want to live. To be me and let nothing else get in the way.
