"Now Or Never" as written by and Salvatore P. Erna....
What'd you go and do that for
I see the way you're
Looking at me
And I don't know why

I don't know and I'm not sure
Have you lost your way
Did you lose your mind
Are you out of time
You say goodbye
Like everythings all right

If we go on it's now or never
If we go on
If we go on it's now or never
If we go on

What'd you go and do that for
I'm telling you so tell me
What's it gonna be

I don't know and I'm not sure
But sooner or later
I want to believe
I want to believe
You say goodbye
Like everythings all right
It's now or never

    General CommentNo comments on this song? Great stuff...I'm thinking the song might be the narrator knowing that his girlfriend wants to break up with him...and she has to do it now or never, but the lyric "Your'e waiting to hold my hand" doesn't really fit with that, so I was thinking perhaps the narrator knows that a girl wants to date him or "ask him out" and she needs to do that now or never...je ne sais pas...what do you guys think?

    General CommentI think this song talke about both those issues. I think it's about the narrator's girlfriend who goes back and forth between being with him and not so he's just telling her: If you wanna be with me then "It's Now or Never."

    General CommentWhat do you guys think the line "Sooner or later I wanna believe" means? It doesn't really seem to fit with the rest of the song, but somehow it does.....

    General Commenti personally just think this song is about taking the leaps in life... not looking back and saying "i wish i did", looking back and saying "hell yeah that was awesome!!" i also think that it's just generic in the way that it could be applied to anything, whether it's a relationship or whatever... but then again that's just me

    General CommentI think this song is basically she broke up with him and "put him on hold" and he is tired of waiting for her to come back, make up her mind, etc. So hes putting his foot down saying "now or never" so he can move on with his life and not dwell on something that might not even happen.

    General CommentI think this song is a combonation of what NineInchNails and hopelessmidget are saying. In a way, it can be taken as being with a girl and telling her if shes going to do anything, its gotta be now or never. But this could also be taken as something you would say before doing something when you have the chance and you may not get it again. Thats just me though.... SLAPHEAD
