"Our Time" as written by and John Hiatt....
I may be dead honey
But I was left with my eyes
And underneath sugar
Well I've been stung by your lies

And my heart baby
Is cold and blue
We're two of a kind baby
Me and You

It's our time, sweet babe
To break on through

It's the year to be hated
So glad that we made it
Cause all the kids in the street
Whisper sounds that sweet
The stars under their feet
Well it's the year to be hated

One, two, ready, go
It's our time, our time, our time, our time
It's our time, our time, our time, our time
To be hated
All right
To be hated

Come on kids
It's our time, our time, our time, our time
It's our time, our time, our time, our time
To be hated
All right
Well it's the year to be hated

    General CommentI always thought the lyrics was:

    So glad that we made it
    Because all the kids in the street
    whisper sounds that sweep
    the stars under their feet

    I always thought that the song was a love song, from one person who's been through a hard time to another person who has. In my mind they'd managed to overcome their adversity through each other's love, and now it's like the dawn of a new day. The kids in the street are those people who haven't had to suffer so much, who make everything look easy. They can ride along through life without having to think anything dark, and so it's as if they're walking on the stars. The person singing the song is basically saying "thank god that chapter of our lives is over..we still have each other, and now we can go back out in the street and walk amongst the stars like all the other kids..like we should have been able to do all along".

    General CommentThis songs makes me cry. I was listening to it in the car with my two best friends and when we hit a cat. Now it's the funeral song for (who we dubbed) Mr. Shenanigans.. poor little guy, always getting into trouble.
    Anyway, gorgeous song

    General Commenti think this song is about a couple who had a lot of problems and really hurt each other and everyone was saying that they would fail and interfering but they got through it all, to the suprise and disgust of some people, and it is their time to show one another how their love no matter what people say

    maybe i am wrong but thats how i see it....
