​Seasons of Love lyrics

“Seasons Of Love”
(from “Rent (Original Broadway Cast Recording)” soundtrack)

[All:]
525,600 minutes
525,000 moments so dear
525,600 minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife
In 525,600 minutes
How do you measure a year in the life?

How about love?
How about love?
How about love?
Measure in love
Seasons of love
Seasons of love

[Joanne:]
525,600 minutes
525,000 journeys to plan
525,600 minutes
How do you measure the life of a woman or man?

[Collins:]
In truths that she learned, or in times that he cried
In bridges he burned, or the way that she died

[All:]
It’s time now to sing out
Though the story never ends
Let’s celebrate, remember a year
In the life of friends

[All & Joanne:]
Remember the love
You got to, you got to remember the love
Remember the love
You know that love is a gift from up above
Remember the love
Share love, give love, spread love
Measure in love
Seasons of love
Seasons of love
Measure, measure your life in love

 

Finale B Lyrics

“there is no future
there is no past
thank god this moments not the last
there’s only us
there’s only this
forget regret
or life is yours to miss
no other road no other way
no day but today

will I lose my dignity
will someone care
will Iwake tomorrow
from this nightmare
there’s only now
there’s only here
give in to love
or live in fear
no other path
no other way
no day but today I cant control
my destiny
i trust my soul
my only goal
is just to be
without you the hand gropes
the ear hears
the pulse beats
life goes on
but I’m gone
‘cus I’d die without you
I’d die without you no day but today”

Today’s Kick Off Story: Becky’s story

Heuristics – simple, efficient rules, learned or inculcated by evolutionary processes, that have been proposed to explain how people make decisions, come to judgements, and solve problems typically when facing complex problems or incomplete information.

Peak–end rule  is a psychological heuristic in which people judge an experience largely based on how they felt at its peak (i.e., its most intense point) and at its end, rather than based on the total sum or average of every moment of the experience.
