I'm 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the waves to where you are

I'm 22 for a moment
And she feels better than ever
And we're on fire
Making our way back from Mars

15 there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose

15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

I'm 33 for a moment
Still the man, but you see I'm a they
A kid on the way
A family on my mind

I'm 45 for a moment
The sea is high
And I'm heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life

15 there's still time for you
Time to buy, Time to lose yourself
Within a morning star

15 I'm all right with you
15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

Half time goes by
Suddenly you're wise
Another blink of an eye
67 is gone
The sun is getting high
We're moving on...

I'm 99 for a moment
Dying for just another moment
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

15 there's still time for you
22 I feel her too
33 you're on your way
Every day's a new day...

Ooh, ooh...

15 there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose
Hey 15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

    I love this song because it makes you stop and think of how life flies by, which is why you should cherish every year of your youth, because if you don't, you'll find yourself at an old age looking back and wishing for the days of your youth. The song just makes so much sense, and the sound of the song just sounds like longing for the days of innocence and youth. It gets sad when he's at 99 in the song, and is dying for another moment before he dies.

    This is a really good song to listen to. It shows us how, even if we live to be 100, its just a blink compared to eternity.

    15 there's still time for you
    time to buy and time to lose
    15, there's never a wish better than this

    It's about each person's life--how short it is, and how we need to never waste a moment of our lives. It's about how each phase of our life has certain things that are important to "do"--but overall the average of 100 years per person is all too short, so don't waste a moment.
