525600 minutes

– from RENT
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes,
Five hundred twenty-five thousand  moments so dear.
Five hundred twenty-five thousands 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!
