Seize the Day Lyrics

Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost
It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over

I see my vision burn, I feel my memories fade with time
But I'm too young to worry
These streets we travel on will undergo...

    I think "Seize the day" is mainly telling you that in some point in time you can mess up so bad that it comes back to huant you. In this case a man has gone to jail after a robbery (which shows in the music video) what you also see is that soon later his wife (or girlfriend) dies in a accident that wasn't supposed to happen. This song (to me) shows how much lives are being wasted from blinded mistakes. You cant live regreting something ("Seize the day or die regreting the time you lost") in your past or present lifeline. So the message A7x is sending us through this song is that:
    "You gotta keep living life and make sure regrets are far from the mind. For all life's reason is to allow your eyes to see that life can be so much worse if you let it."

    So that's what I think...

    This pretty much means hold on to the person that you love, never get into fights over stupid petty shit because you don't know what will happen tomorrow today or even in one hour. Never take what is going on to be trivial. Take the one that you love and "seize the day".

    Actually the interpretation. Is in the song title SEIZE THE DAY!!! what the heck else could it mean don't do drugs. and taking chances as someone said "so what if I never hold you or kiss your lips again" and "I don't want to die alone without you here"

    I think this song is about how even though he lost someone, (not necessarily through death) he has to live life, no matter what. even though hist heart has been broken, or whatever, he's not going to waste his life mourning over it.

    In my opinion seize the day is a story of love,
    How M shadows is thinking of what will happen if his girl friend become ill or under any other circumstances and how he will cope with this problem. "Never Kiss Your Lips Again" gives the impression that he will lose all hope and not know how to live; his life will not be worth living if he loses her

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think this song is about a young person relizing that they are mortal and don't want to die, and wanting to live the best way he can "seize the day." Also they don't want to die not knowing what is instore for him, and he doesn't want to leave the ones he loves without at least having them by his side so he can say goodbye "I don't wanna die alone without you here." and "so what if I never hold you or kiss your lips again."

    the girlfriend in the video is his real girlfriend of many years. He said that he wouldn't be able to act like he was really in love with a complete and total stranger. I kmow it's not an interp.,but some of you may not have known that.
