lyrics

TAKE IT WHILE THE MOMENT LASTS

It's good to see you, to see you smile at me so sweetly.
Feels kinda neat, too: the combination fits completely.
This thing that we've begun grows bigger every day;
A snowball of emotion rolling downhill all the way.
It'll never reach the bottom if we live from day to day
And take it while the moment lasts.

The right components can give a high that sets you reeling:
Those frozen moments; those photographs of finer feelings;
Those times when true emotions start to crystallize,
And love begins to blossom without hint of compromise.
Don't think about tomorrow: see the present in our eyes
And take it while the moment lasts.

So take it while the moment lasts, love.
Don't try to take it slow or fast, love.
It's a certainty, they say, that love will find a way,
So relax and let the evening flow....

It's good to see you, to see you smile at me so sweetly.
Feels kinda neat, too: the combination fits completely.
This thing that we've begun grows bigger every day;
A snowball of emotion rolling downhill all the way.
It'll never reach the bottom if we live from day to day
And take it while the moment lasts.
