I've been waiting for my dreams
To turn into something

I could believe in
And looking for that
Magic rainbow
On the horizon
I couldn't see it
Until I let go
Gave into love and watched all the bitterness burn
Now I'm coming alive
Body and soul
And feelin' my world start to turn

And I'll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time
To be more than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life

Holding onto things and vanished
Them to the air
Left me in pieces
But now I'm rising from the ashes
Finding my wings
And all that I needed
Was there all along
Within my reach
As close as the beat of my heart

And I'll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time to be
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life

And I'm out on the edge of forever
Ready to run
I'm keeping my feet on the ground
My arms open wide
My face to the sun

And I'll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time to be
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
This is the time
This is the time of my life.
This is the time of my life.
Life
Time of my life
Time of my life

    I actually thought this was ung by Edwin McCain when I first heard it. I honestly wasn't too thrilled with his voice on AI, but he sounds great on this song... I hope it's not just the studio fixing his vocals.

    The lyrics are great too. It's the typical "I just won AI" song, but it has a lot of soul to it and I'm looking forward to seeing what his next single will sound like.

    the composer of this song (the winner of the song writing competition in AI) must be brilliant and he really knows what a winning song means. that and DC, that's a hit!

    it's amazing how dreams can fuel you up no matter how exhausted you are of the long fight. as long as you focus on the prize and give it your best shot, you're bound to win... the way DC did. =)

    this song is really great..
    one can pick lessons from it.
    it was such an amazing song that whoever listens to this will be touched...

    there are times that we, as individuals should stand above the rest and be the best that we can be...

    that is the message of this wonderful song..

    i think it happens all the time...
    all of us have dreams and aspirations but along the way, we meet a lot of discouragement...
    but if we don't dare to struggle and find our way in reaching what we wanted, then that dream will definitely be gone...
    but lucky for those who are given the chance to achieve what they wanted... to achieve their dreams because they deserve it because they've worked hard for it.
    it feels so good to taste the fruit of our success...
    it feels so good to be in the pedestal and say that we are at the peak of our life time...
    it even feels better to share that moment with people who also aspired with us...

    well... this song just wants to inspire us to reach our aspirations and have our moment of a lifetime...

    not everybody could achieve it, so we better grub it whenever we got the chance
