Seasons Of Love Lyrics

Seasons Of Love Song Lyrics


ALL
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

JOANNE
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?

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

ALL
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!

JOANNE(while ALL sing)
Oh you got to got to
Remember the love!
You know that love is a gift from up above
Share love, give love spread love
Measure measure your life in love.



About

May, 07th 2014
"Seasons of Love" from the "Rent" soundtrack is an iconic song that captures the essence of the mysical's exploration of life, love, and loss against the backdrop of New York City's bohemian Alphabet City in the late 1980s. The song asks a poignant question: "How do you measure a year in the life?" It suggests that the true value of time is found not in the minutes themselves but in the experiences and emotions shared among friends and loved ones.

The refrain, "Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes," quantifies a year, ofering a stark reminder of time's passage. Yet, the song quickly shifts focus from the numerical to the emotional, proposing that love is the most meaningful metric. Through its repetition of "How about love? Measure in love," the song emphasizes that love, in its many forms, is what imbues life with significance.

The lyrics detail various ways to measure a year beyond the conventional, including "daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee." These images evoke the everyday moments that, while seemingly mundane, form the tapestry of our lives. The inclusion of "in laughter, in strife" acknowledges the spectrum of human experience, from joy to hardship, underscoring the message that every moment, whether good or bad, contributes to our understanding of love and life.

As the song progresses, it broadens its scope to consider "the life of a woman or a man," reflecting on the individual journeys that compose the collective experience. The lines "In truths that she learned, Or in times that he cried. In bridges he burned, Or the way that she died." highlight the personal growth, challenges, and the ultimate impermanence that characterize human existence.

The concluding call to "Remember the love! Remember the love! Seasons of love!" serves as both a celebration of the bonds formed between the characters in "Rent" and a universal message to cherish the love we give and receive. "Seasons of Love" transcends its role in the musical to become an anthem of resilience, reminding listeners to measure their lives not in time but in the depth and breadth of their connections with others.
