you know this year was a blur
i think i know you but i'm not sure
if i don't know, i don't care
i only took u home on a dare

it's only living now
it's all i'm given
were only living now
a quarter to 7
hits me with the bright light

were only living now
it's all i'm given


you know this year was the worst
i only thought it was fun at first
& i don't care if i'm wrong
you know this business been all year long

it's only living now
it's all i'm given
were only living now
a quarter to 7, hits me with the bright light

were only living now
it's all i'm given
it's only living now
it's all i'm given
(yeah)
things are starting to blur
i'm almost calling your name
things are starting to blur
i almost made a mistake
things are starting to blur
i only shut myself up
things are starting to blur
i almost fucked myself up

hey, it's only living now
(hey)it's all were given
were only living now
it's all were given
(hey)were only living now
it's all were given
it's only living now

a quarter to 7
a quarter to 7
a quarter to 7
hits me with the bright light

were only living now

    General CommentThis is Scott (or the narrartor of the tale) coming to the end of a year after a painful breakup. He's looking back at all that happened since the break-up and realizing that it all passed too quickly and that he made some mistakes. And he realizes that the girl he is with now is just the rebound and he doesn't really have feelings for her.
