100 Years Lyrics - Five For Fighting

Review The Song (49)

I'm 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

I'm 22 for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we're on fire
Making our way back from Mars

15 there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

I'm 33 for a moment
Still the man, but you see I'm a THEY
A kid on the way babe
A family on my mind

I'm 45 for a moment
The sea is high
And I'm heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life

15 there's still time for you
Time to buy, Time to lose yourself
Within a morning star

15 I'm all right with you
15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

Half time goes by
Suddenly you’re wise
Another blink of an eye
67 is gone
The sun is getting high
We're moving on...

I'm 99 for a moment
Dying for just another moment
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

15 there's still time for you
22 I feel her too
33 you’re on your way
Every day's a new day...

oooooh, oooooh, oooooh, ooh

15 there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose
Hey 15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

true song about life :) | Reviewer: Jaysper | 8/23/13

the song shows to me that time is precious and that in a blink of an eye your a new age. i think it's amazing how the writer put the song in perfect motion, it showed me that life is short and that you should keep and not be trying to get to a certain age. life is short and you should live life to the fullest. :)

Sentimental stuff | Reviewer: Chas | 1/13/13

I have no desire to go back to 15. When I was 15 I was dumb and girls were way too serious. But I was smart enough to know I was too young to pick the right mate. At twice that age I still found the wrong mate. At about 40 I understood what was right and wrong and found my wife and got engaged a week and 3 days later. It's not easy to live with someone, but it's worth the work it takes to do it. It's easier than not sharing.

Second Chances | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/1/10

I found someone who I never thought existed. With him I felt alive, I felt like I could breathe and not worry about getting hurt, though sadly, it doesn't always work out that way. His mom liked me more than her own son, he was always rebellious toward his mom so had put some distance between us. I found out later on he had cheated on me with 3 other girls. It was the worst pain I had ever lived through and I've been through a lot so far in my life, which hasn't been very long. I have learned of boundaries that will keep myself from as much trouble as possible. I was always distant with everyone, but he was the only one I wasn't so distant with and although he still did such a thing and got with one of the girls he had cheated on me with I still want to be with him again. A second chance is all I want to give him, it's just I know that this won't happen. Only if he would change. Everyone thinks I'm desperate and stupid for this. Maybe I am. Now I've only asked for friendship and nothing more. I've tried talking to him about it but he's still depressed,from what I understand.

To "I Wish There Were Happy Endings To Every Story", what about your daughter, do you have a relationship with her and her family(if she's married...?); You talk about being lonely,reach out to your daughter, you're still her father regardless of the situation between you and her mother. What's Past is Past, you can't change it, don't shortchange yourself the rest of your life; God wouldn't want it that way....

I Wish There Were Happy Endings To Every Story | Reviewer: Ron | 11/26/09

My story is so similar to RisingSun's review from back in March '09 that it gave me chills. My high school sweetheart remains to this day the most beautiful girl I've ever personally known. We adored each other. Unlike Sheryl's blue-green eyes, my darling had fair skin, long, straight dark hair, and the most sparkling, happy, Irish-blue eyes I've ever seen. Unlike RisingSun, I was the one who broke us apart, and fell out of love with her just long enough to meet and think that I was in love with someone else. As I proceded through engagement and marriage over the next year and some months, my sweetheart went on with her life, too, and was engaged and married in turn a few months after I was. I had bad vibes about my marriage within a few months, and when I saw my sweetheart's bridal photo in the newspaper, I broke down and cried, but it was too late. My (now) ex-wife and I had a daughter, and I would never have left with a small child at home. The marriage was a disaster...we were incompatible in so many ways, but I stayed on because I believed it was the honorable thing to do,and I watched 31 of my "100" years go by. Not a day went by that I didn't think of my sweetheart and how different things would have been "if only"...but I believed for all those years that she hated me for walking away from her. Finally, and predictably, my marriage ended when my daughter became an adult.
I, like RisingSun, finally had the chance to meet my sweetheart again after more than 30 years. We had lunch to discuss plans for me to interview a member of her family about his WWII experiences. When she took off her sunglasses, the shockwave nearly caused my legs to give out under me. It was as if all that time gone by had made her even more beautiful than when she was a girl. We swapped photos of my child and her children. I kept up a happy face, but inside I was dying. Seeing her large family, beatiful home and car, and her husband who made three times my salary, my heart was shattered. I knew there and then there would be no romantic reunion like that of RisingSun and Sheryl. My broken heart would remain broken forever. There would be no final happy years together walking off into the sunset, just a procession of lonely, empty days, each like the one before, leading off into oblivion. Unlike RisingSun, I will have no chance to show my sweetheart how I never, ever stopped adoring her for all these years. Now, I'm in my late-50s with little keeping me going except depression medication and my job. The pain and emptiness I feel every day is unbearable, and it's all my fault, so I deserve it. People urge me to go out, to find someone else. God forbid it! There is only one women on the planet to whom I have dedicated my life, and if I am destined to never have her, then there will be no one else. I will never "settle" again, not ever. If I have to live alone like this, knowing that she will never be mine, knowing that she lives a stone's throw away but I can't ever be together with her, then I pray that God in His mercy will not force me to live out my remaining years like this, but will take away my pain as soon as possible. I don't want 100 years...not if the remaining 43 will be spent in this pain, misery, and loneliness.
I love this song, but my heart aches every time I hear it. No matter what I have accomplished in my life and my profession, all of these things multipled by a thousand can't even scratch the surface of what I lost when I walked away from the love of my life.
RisingSun and Sheryl, you have not the faintest idea how much I envy you. I hope that God DOES grant you your "100 Years," and that you spend them loving each other with all you heart and soul until your last breath.

Depressing | Reviewer: John | 7/8/09

This is such a perfect and beautiful, but yet still so sad song. It perfectly depicts life and how you should live it to the fullest, but at the same time makes life seem so short. You're here, and within 100 years you're gone, and that's it. It's so amazing but so depressing.

Growing up | Reviewer: Christine | 6/24/09

This song made me cry. D: I'm fifteen, turning sixteen in a couple short months. I AM pretty young, but it sure doesn't feel like it. I think about when I was twelve, thirteen, fourteen, and I thought I was getting old too fast, and now I think about how young I was. And that was just a few years ago. I'll be thinking the same thing in a few more years about how young I was at fifteen or sixteen or seventeen.

I wish I could start this year over and enjoy being fifteen again. It feels like the years are going by too fast, and I'm getting dangerously close to adulthood. I wish I could just stop, slow down, and relish being young before I grow up.

Began & still living with love from 15 till now 53 & we're still in-love | Reviewer: Kim Corder | 4/8/09

We met when I was 14 & he 16. Love at first site. Married at 17 & he at 19. Had children 3 & 5 years later. Still going strong after many of life's ups & downs. Now after children grown & gone, have one grandchild, and are more in-love than ever. Even with our gray hair & wrinkles at ages 53 & 55, madly & passionately in-love & looking into each other's eyes still see the fire we felt when we were 14 & 16 years. Hoping to live more than a hundred years together. This song is our story.

A love never forgotten | Reviewer: RisingSun | 3/12/09

I fell in love for the first time at 17 and she was 15. The moment I laid eyes on her she took my breath away. The brightest blue green eyes and most beautiful face and smile I'd ever seen. I was told by my parents,coach, teachers and fellow students that she was to young for me and the relationship we had...I had to say goodbye to her and break her heart... being young and foolish I was never able to tell her the reason why I had to let her go. I tried but was unable to put the words or the courage together and face her. I carried this regret for twenty seven years, the only regret I have in my life was letting go of her. Fearing all these years that she wouldn't care to know me any longer because of the hurt I caused her, I remembered and kept her in my heart everyday, vowing one day if I get the chance I would tell her all I couldn't at the time. Then the day came.

She stood before me, just as beautiful as the last time I seen her. My heart stopped and I couldn't breathe. I broke down right in front of her and pulled her into my arms and couldn't let her go. Weeping like a child and trying desperately to regain my composure, she held me until we both stopped crying and I could speak. I told her everything. We spent hours together that day reliving old memories and making new ones...I never stopped loving her all these years. Now she lets me show her everyday how much I love her and continue to leave my heart wide open for her, till time is no more.

I love you Sheryl.


Military Retirement Video | Reviewer: DEH | 1/12/09

At my retirement after twenty years as a military officer, a dear friend put together a retirement video capturing my career highlights and also included family photos going back 40+ years. "100 Years" was featured and, in combination with old family photos when I was a boy, photos of my wife and I when were dating, of our son as an infant, along with loved ones who have passed, the effect was very emotional.
It's been nearly three years since I retired and I'm 45 now. Each time I hear "100 Years" those images come flooding back and the effect is still the same. It's a wonderful song and will remain one of my all-time favorites.

beautiful song. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/22/08

I'm 16... and I guess I still have plenty of time. But with all the stress I've been feeling lately toward school and relationships and humanity - it sometimes feels that days are passing by so fast. With the blink of an eye, another year has passed by.

Love It! | Reviewer: N.S.DarkAngel | 6/14/08

So, I was making a video yearbook for all my friends, and this was one of the songs that they put on a cd for me, so I could figure out what to put the video to. Out of the 21 songs on the list, on the first three and a half actually played, but that was fine with me. The second I heard it, I immedietly put it into the video.
Thanks you so much Cass!

omg! | Reviewer: someone'n'love | 5/28/08

this is a great song!it was played at our prom three weeks ago, and while we were dancing my date looked at me and said,"youve only got a hundred years to live"...i think he was tring to steal a kiss...but still it made me really think about where i stand in life and where i want to be.

I'm 33 for a moment | Reviewer: Brooke | 4/9/08

I have struggled with the last few days of knowing today I was turning 33, don't get me wrong..I LOVE MY BIRTHDAY(S) but this was hard. I thought I would be in a very different place in my life, on so many levels. I have always thought embrace the age you are and where you are in life but it has been so hard to think that for my life. Yesterday, my little brother turned 15 years old. I think about his life and where he is and the amazing young man he is...and how much time he has. I started to reflect about my life and where I was at 15. This morning, I was getting ready and the song came on. As I have heard and loved this song for years...I started singing it. I again started thinking of my brother and then it clicked, I'm 33 for this moment, today. My life is really "on my way". I started a new job last year, returned to school, made some huge decisions with relationships and friendships, lost my father, my dearest Aunt, my life has just begun...I have so much life. It may not be the dreams and goals "I" thought but I am preparing myself for my future. I am excited and I can't wait to live, with every day a new day!
