Song of the Day : The Flaming Lips – Do You Realize? [Official Music Video] – YouTube


Today’s Song of the Day is 2002’s ” Do You Realize? ” by The Flaming Lips. It is a song that concerns itself with the precarious and precious nature of our lives, a lesson we all should remember, especially in the days ahead.

Do You Realize?

Do you realize, that you have the most beautiful face
Do you realize, we’re floating in space,
Do you realize, that happiness makes you cry
Do you realize, that everyone you know someday will die

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes, let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It’s hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn’t go down
It’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do you realize, oh, oh, oh
Do you realize, that everyone you know
Someday will die

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes, let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It’s hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn’t go down
It’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do you realize, that you have the most beautiful face
Do you realize

Songwriters: Coyne, Wayne / Drozd, Steven / Ivins, Michael / Fridmann, Dave
