100 Years Lyrics


I'm fifteen for a moment
Caught in between ten and twenty
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
I'm twenty two for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we're on fire
Making our way back from Mars
Fifteen there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
Fifteen, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got hundred years to live
I'm thirty three for a moment
Still the man, but you see I'm of age
A kid on the way
A family on my mind
I'm forty five for a moment
The sea is high
And I'm heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life
Fifteen there's still time for you
Time to buy, time to lose yourself
Within a morning star
Fifteen I'm all right with you
Fifteen, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got hundred years to live
Half time goes by
Suddenly you're wise
Another blink of an eye
Sixty seven is gone
The sun is getting high
We're moving on
I'm ninety nine for a moment
Dying for just another moment
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
Fifteen there's still time for you
Twenty two I feel her too
Thirty three you're on your way
Every day's a new day
Fifteen there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose
Hey fifteen, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got hundred years to live

100 Years
  • This song is a simple reminder about how precious life is. How we should sink in every moment. How we should look up to what we have. (thanks, John - Sydney, Australia)
  • John Ondrasik wrote the lyrics about his life: when he was 15 he couldn't find a girl, at 22 he found the girl and got married, at 33 he had his first child.

    Ondrasik was born in 1965, so he was about 39 when the song was released. In his 2015 Songfacts interview , when we asked him about passing some of the milestones in the song, he replied: "As you can grow up through the song, I never tire of playing it. That said, living the bridge ['Half time goes by, suddenly you're wise...'] is certainly different than that second verse."

    As more the midlife crisis he predicted for age 45, Ondrasik said he "missed it by two years."
  • Among the uses of this song in popular culture: a commercial for JP Morgan Chase, on the TV shows Clubhouse, Smallville and Scrubs, as well as the last scenes of the final episode of JAG. It was also used in a tribute to Katie Couric on her last day on The Today Show. (thanks, Nick - Tucson, AZ)
  • When Ondrasik sings, "half time goes by," the song actually switches from regular time to half time. (thanks, Kyler - Winslow, Arizona)
  • The video shows Ondrasik at a magic piano where he appears at various life stages. The clip was directed by Trey Fanjoy, whose other work includes "Only Prettier" by Miranda Lambert and "Somebody Like You" by Keith Urban.
