525,600 minutes

I saw RENT on Broadway some years ago and again saw it on TV the other night. I remember those days, I remember those friends, I remember the time when all that mattered was "that minute", the times before the Deathsweeping began.

525,600 minutes, 525,000 moments so dear. 525,600 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 525,600 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.

525,600 minutes! 525,000 journeys to plan. 525,600 minutes - how can you measure
the life of a woman or man?

SOLOIST 2

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

COMPANY

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! Remember
the love! Measure in love. Seasons of love! Seasons of love.

I remember.......DS

This song always gets me - puts everything in perspective doesn't it. One of my students chose this as her "personal anthem" when we did a project -- it was a great thing to see a group of pre-teens all listening intently to lyrics and taking them to heart. Occasionally the little hormone balls had some depth haha :o )
