I can't stand by
And see you destroyed
I can't be here
And watch you burn up
Lie for the moment
And lie as a decoy
So does it matter
If I give in easy?
So why
Is it so hard to get by?

And I say
We so down
But it's now or never baby
We don't mind
If this don't last forever
See the light
But it won't last forever
Seize the time
Cause it's now or never baby

Let's leave at sunrise
Let's live by the ocean
I don't mind
If we never come home at all
Steal the morning
So set in motion
In and out of love
And institutions
Cause I know
This can't last for long

And I say
We so down
But it's now or never baby
We don't mind
If this don't last forever
See the light
But it won't last forever
Seize the time
Cause it's now or never baby

So why
Is it so hard to get by?
And I say...

We so down
AND! this can't last forever
We don't mind
Cause it's now or never baby

    Favourite tune ever, in the local after a close friends funeral of mine, some months after a bitter divorce, ex wife walks in. Instead of bitterness, she walked over to the jukebox n put this on for me! Will never forget as about last thing she ever did for me n i'm eternally grateful xx
