Pounding

  • 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
    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
    But this can't last forever
    We don't mind
    'Cause it's now or never, baby Writer/s: ANDY WILLIAMS, JEZ WILLIAMS, JIMI GOODWIN
