Time Is Contagious

I love this song so much on the Later with Jools Holland album. I think the vocals of Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan are amazing and the lyrics are equally amazing. They're the kind of lyrics that are a little bit obscure and I guess can be interpreted in slightly different ways. My favourite part of the song... "time is contagious, everybody's getting old" - it's simply beautiful and so true. To me, this song is about choosing to live your life in one of two ways. You can either waste your time hiding away and waiting on other peoples' permission to do the things that you want to do, or you can live your life the way you want to. It's about getting on with things, not worrying about what other people think, living life with no regrets and knowing that everybody doesn't need to know exactly the truth about what you've been up to. So... put some fire up your ass, do what you want to do, and next time someone feels that they need to know what you've been up to, tell them you've been licking coconut skins :)
