You're my last breath
You're a breath of fresh air to me
I am empty
So tell me you care for me

You're the first thing
And the last thing on my mind
In your arms I feel
Sunshine

All the promise
A daydream yet to come
Time is upon us
Oh but the night is young

Flowers blossom
In the wintertime
In your arms I feel
Sunshine

Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Let's make this moment last

You may find yourself
Out on a limb for me
Could you accept it as
A part of your destiny?

I give all I have
But it's not enough
And my patience's all shot
So I'm calling your bluff

Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Let's make this moment last

Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Let's make this moment last

And we gave it time
All eyes are on the clock
Time takes too much time
Please make the waiting stop

And the atmosphere is charged
In you I trust
And I feel no fear as I
Do as I must

Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Let's make this moment last

Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Let's make this moment last

Tempted by fate
And I won't hesitate
The time is now
And I can't blame it

I been in it too long
The time is now
And the time has gone
Let's make this moment last
And the night is young

The time is now
Let's make this moment last

Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Let's make this moment, last

    General CommentTo anyone who´s ever taken it; it´s pretty obvious this ong is about ecstasy :D

    "And we gave it time
    All eyes are on the clock
    Time takes too much time
    Please make the waiting stop

    And the atmosphere is charged
    In you I trust
    And I feel no fear as I
    Do as I must

    Give up yourself unto the moment
    The time is now
    Give up yourself unto the moment
    Let's make this moment last"

    You know the feeling waiting for the MDMA to kick in, then "the atmosphere is charged" yeah yeah I know, then you "do as I must" which is dancing you ass off, celebrating. Chorus is just selfexplanatory when you know it right :P

    General CommentI first heard this song when all my friends were trying to persuade me not to go out with this lad. Everytime i hear it it reminds me that life is for living in the moment and sometimes you have to take a risk. Fab song
