    This song means that life is not measured in time, but in the moments you spend and who you spend it with. It's the little things in life, coffee and hugs, crying or laughing. Don't remember a year as another year gone, but as a year you spent in the company of good friends that love you. "Measure your life in love"- the people and things you love. For life without love is death.
    Alternatively, in context of the musical, the song is a summary of the main characters' year.

    This song is amazing i never saw rent but i had to sing this song for my hs chorus class and now i really understand the meaning. Love conquers all and no matter what conflict or anything you go through with a loved one how can you measure a year if not through the seasons of love. Focus on the positives and leave the negative in the dust... Measure your life in love

    To enjoy each moment you have with the ones you love and never take a minute for granted since you don't know when he or she will be taken from you. Be the one you love a grandparent, parent, step-parent, aunt, uncle, cousin, brother, step-brother, sister, step-sister, friend, the love of your life. The time a human spends on earth is short and because of that it should always be treasured and cherished.

    We only have a life constructed of finitely many little moments, how we are measured is up to us, we have many opportunities to show people what we are made of weather it is getting a cup of coffee or getting up at 2:00 am for a friend who needs you. There are 525,600 chances this year, get up and make a diference in someones life.
