Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes,
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Moments so D.
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

In injections, in test strips, in site changes
In cups of juice
In highs, in lows, in HBa1c.

In five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure
A year with D?

i didn't really write it, it's just a bastardised version of the lyrics from a song called seasons of love, from the musical RENT.
