    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.

    I think this song means that when people lie to you or cheat on you, you should always love them no matter what. Our life is made by love and without it we would be nothing. Don't take life or love for granted!

    Seasons of love is a very good tear-jerking song
    They played this at my graduation and i cried
    I think it is meant to teach you to value life and live it to the fullest
