Do You Realize? Lyrics - The Flaming Lips

Review The Song (11)



One, two, three, four -
Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face
Do You Realize - we're floating in space -
Do You Realize - that happiness makes you cry
Do You Realize - that everyone you know someday will die

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun don'-go down
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do You Realize - Oh - Oh - Oh
Do You Realize - that everyone you know
Someday will die -

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last

You realize the sun don'-go down

Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face
Do You Realize

WOW | Reviewer: Chives | 3/25/13

I just bought this album, and I am LOVING it. They are so talented, and they go way beyond most artists. Both in talent and in meaning. Their songs are so deep. Thanks for opening my eyes when I failed to ^-^

Timeless Treasure | Reviewer: Laura Evol | 4/26/12

This song is a timeless treasure If one listens closely to it's message,
they may be spared heart ache, if a loved one leaves before
they realize how much they meant to them. Listen with love,
act like you realize......before it's too late.

"The sun doesn't go down, it's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round"

Sometimes life is bad and sometimes it's good. That's just the way it goes. You couldn't understand light if you've never known dark. So roll with the punches and keep your loved ones close. Let them know you realize that life goes fast, it's hard to make the good things last" Peace, love, and hope. Thanks Flaming lips

Loss of words | Reviewer: Hawaii | 10/7/09

The thought of dying, something everyone lives through and yet, no one accepts. This song is an outstanding view point where I have to agree with Denver saying, "it only takes a moment to completley relieve ourselves of this world, how wonderful and easy is it to look at someone's face and see the ancient beauty embedded there."

perfect | Reviewer: palyniam | 7/17/09

When I listen to this song it gives me a great sense of being alive, the words he sings about " Do You Realize - that everyone you know
Someday will die -" is very hard hitting but very true, something people dont do much nowadays.
Brilliant song

kiss on the lips | Reviewer: denver | 12/25/07


TFL! GODYES! reminding us it only takes a moment to completley relieve ourselves of this world, how wonderful and easy is it to look at someone's face (anyone's face really!) and see the ancient beauty embedded there. and how amazing that we are indeed floating in space...taking the time to remove yourself from yourself and look ,at everything on a much bigger scale, well that is just goddamn healthy if i do say so myself!

Proof: | Reviewer: Michael Geer | 12/24/07

It is proof that moving on is important.

The good things do last, in memory and we should only take that energy and supply it to what is RIGHT IN FRONT OF US. Often times we hardly think that "these hands in front of my face aren't going to be here someday"

I embrace that realness of mortality which a lot of folks take for granted. I mean whom really wants to think about it right?

The energy we have had to make wonderful moments is sometimes negated by missing someone... or something... we mustn't hold on soo tightly to the past or we will just become it.

Beautiful | Reviewer: Jordan | 11/12/07

A wonderful song, I think David is absolutely right, it really does make stop and think and understand things better.

For me its about the whole concept of polar oppossites. Like you can't have light without darkness, you can't have good without evil. It's just the beautiful thing that everything is so connected even the things that seem so disconnected. This song makes me just stop and go wow. I do realize these things, I just don't realize what they mean. But they'll mean something different everytime, isn't that nice?

Listen | Reviewer: David | 7/6/07

Stop and listen, this song can help you understand life alot better
