"My Life & Times" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
My life in the morning sun
My life in the speeding car
Too much to lose

My life on the empty roads
My life in the electric room
Too much to lose
Too much to lose

So hear the way that the world is calling
My life to you
Show the way that I'll keep it coming
My life to you
My life to you
My life to you

My life in the messy room
My life in the greasy girl
My life to you

My life in the wall of shame
My life in the passing car
My life to lose
My life to you
My life to you

So hear the way that the world is calling
My life to you
Show the way that I'll keep it coming
My life to you
My life to you

'Cause my life and my love stand for always
Your love and our love stand for always

Any way that you want it now
Just say the word you can have it now
My life to you
My life to you
My life to you

My life to you
My life to you

Any way that you want it now
Just say the words you can have it now
Any way that you want it now
Just say the words you can have it now
Any way that you want it now
Just show the world that you want it now
Anyway that you want it now
Just show the world you can have it now

My life to you
My life to you

    General Commenti think that this song is talking about his life or just life in general and how everywhere he goes and everything he does hes thinking about someone he loves (i dont know if he is still married the that woman that did the thirty three video) or someone that he loved and now they are no longerto together and how he lives for that person

    General CommentDoes anybody know where I can get (buy, download, whatever) the acoustic version of this song. You get a small sample of it on the Zwan CD/DVD, but only about a minute of it. I have looked everywhere, and there is no release from Zwan except Mary Star of the Sea. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    General CommentI think it's about a relationship with a particular relationship that the singer experienced. It was probably a relationship where neither he nor other could withstand, understand, and sometimes both. When he says "my life to you," I think he is expressing a need or a desire to give what he didn't give in his, well, his life.

    It doesn't adress the issue of tolerance of this person. This is clear now. Now is for understanding, giving, and acceptence. He accepts this person. He needs to love them.

    "Just say the words you can have it now
    Any way that you want it now"

    this line...I think It means that, words hold, and words release. 'There are words holding them,' Figuratively, not literaly. The words mean 'talking'. Talking means 'the words'. Which words are they? One can only guess. It might not be specific words. The words might be a catalist. A catalyst for what? One can only guess.

    What I get out of the song is that the singer willingness to talk signals that something between the to will be different between them when they talk. This makes me wonder if they ever did talk....And if they did, have I listened to the song about it yet? lol
