Company
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

Soloist number one
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?

Soloist number two
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
Remember the love
Measure in love

Soloist number one
Measure, measure your life in love

Seasons of love
Seasons of love

    General Comment:he used "inane" right you retards, he's saying that even though he wants to beat them, he thinks its so stupid that he shouldn't even waste the effort. Try thinking the next time you try to sound smart.

    General Comment:Soloist #2's part has some references in there to RENT.
    "in truths that she learned" Possible reference to April learning she was HIV + or Roger and Mimi learning the same about each other
    "The times that he cried" Reference to Collins losing Angel
    "In bridges he burned" Reference to Roger trying to get rid of his love of Mimi, by leaving for Santa Fe
    "The way that she died" Reference to April's suicide or Angel's death from AIDS.

    I read that somewhere and I thought it was a good explanation for that part of the song. A good song, though it isn't the best song in RENT.

    General Comment:I think this song really means what it says - that love is the only meaningful way to measure your life. Not even time matters if you don't have that connection with people. And that happy moments, not sad things like heartbreak or burnt bridges, are what matter.

    General Comment:It's sentimental, sappy tripe. That might be why you hate it.

    I'm a huge musical theatre geek, and proud of it. I'm also a closeted Rent hater. It's for my own safety.

    General Comment:ive found so much meaning in such simple words.. you measure a year in the relationships, friendships etc that youve nurtured or even ended.. its the simplicity that makes it so hard for people like you to enjoy. youre on a song meanings site.. of course youre already thinking too hard.

    General Comment:They made us sing this in chorus. The bad chorus, that is: I'm also part of the smaller, better chorus. So for me this song means grating harmonies...
