  • I'm not gonna sleep tonight
    Till the morning fills the sky
    No one's getting left behind, this is our time
    This is our time

    We're gonna live this night, yeah
    Live it like it's our last night
    'Cause nobody cares
    If there's no tomorrow

    I'm not thinking 'bout the future (the future)
    It's somewhere out there
    We're all busy being human
    We remember
    Hearts spinning all around me (together)
    Now, they're surrounding me
    This is how we get connected
    Running out the shadows into light

    We're gonna live this night, yeah
    Live it like it's our last night
    'Cause nobody cares
    If there's no tomorrow

    We're gonna love this night, yeah
    Loving like it's our last night
    Stars up in the air, yeah
    It's our last night in the city

    I've been traveling around now
    (Big world with my brothers)
    Always moving to a new town
    No time to put the roofs down
    We can't stop believing (can't stop)
    Now we believe in you
    'Cause when you're standing in the spotlights
    The only thing that matters is tonight

    We're gonna live this night, yeah
    Live it like it's our last night
    'Cause nobody cares
    If there's no tomorrow

    We're gonna love this night, yeah
    Loving like it's our last night
    Stars up in the air, yeah
    It's our last night in the city

    (Yeah) yeah
    Last night in the city
    (Yeah) yeah
    Last night in the city

    I'm not gonna sleep tonight
    Till the morning fills the sky
    No one's getting left behind, this is our time
    This is our time

    We're gonna live this night, yeah
    Live it like it's our last night
    'Cause nobody cares
    If there's no tomorrow

    We're gonna love this night, yeah
    Loving like it's our last night
    Stars up in the air, oh yeah
    It's our last night in the city

    (Yeah) yeah
    Last night in the city
    (Yeah) yeah
