I am in love,
With what we are,
Not what we should be.

And I am,
I am starstruck.
With every part,
Of this whole story.

So if it's just tonight,
The animal inside,
Let it live and die.

Like it's the end of time,
Like everything inside,
Let it live and die.

This is our last chance,
In your hands
'Cause the world is spinning at the speed of light.
The night is fading, heart is racing.
Now just come to love the life we're gonna die.

Oh oh

I'm not asleep, I'm up for the fight
Into the magic.
And I don't, want the concrete.
I am alive.
Comes with the tragic.

So if it's just tonight,
The animal inside,
Let it live and die.

This is our last chance, in your hands.
'Cause the world is spinning at the speed of light.
The night is fading, heart is racing.
Now just come to love the life we're gonna die

Oh
Oh
Oh

This is our last chance, in your hands.
'Cause the world is spinning at the speed of light.
The night is fading, heart is racing.
Now just come to love the life we're gonna die. Oh.

Oh. Oh. Oh.

    I have feelings for this guy, but we both are very insecure, and keep telling eachother, not to get attached because we don't want to hurt eachother, and i just think this song fits our journey at this point in our lives, whether we go further, or just remain as we are, and eventually go seperate ways, this is what the song means to me.

    It makes me think of someone who knows there are going to die soon and they want to make sure that this is the best night that they will remember forever

    For me, i believe this song is about an awakening, or a calling to someone, asking them to at least live this night with them without constraint or fear. It about letting go of the fears and repercussions just to enjoy the moment and memory to come because life is short. Take risks and love.

    I believe that the song animal is a metaphor expressing how a sexual relationship might have been for the artist. Many people can relate to this meaning because most people have sexual interactions like the lyrics in this song.
