Sun Goes Down (Living It Up)
by Level 42



Though I live on the edge time is on my side
All the doors to my life are open wide
Just as long as the wheels keep on turning 'round
I will live for the groove 'til the sun goes down

Living it up, living it up
I can feel it
Living it up
Is it a crazy notion?
Living it up, living it up
I can feel it
Living it up
I got forward motion

I don't wanna go to war, I don't wanna go to war
I said I know what I want and I don't wanna go war - do you follow me?
I saw a soldier standing in a bar
Looked so tired he'd come so far
He said "I need to love someone, before they drop the atom bomb"

There's a girl at the back making eyes at me
And her hair long and black is a sight to see
But I get kind of scared when love's around
I just live for the groove 'til the sun goes down

Living it up, living it up
I can feel it
Living it up
Is it a false emotion?
Living it up, living it up
I can feel it
Living it up
I got forward motion

So I'm a-taking you out but I'm a-faking
I'm married to the beat
But to the music I gave the heart I could have given you
Still there's something 'bout the way that you move
And the way that people stare it's the shock of the new
I want my friends to see me standing next to you

The sun goes down
Time is on my side
I don't care what they say I'll enjoy the ride
But I get kind of scared when I turn around
So I'll stay with the groove 'til the sun goes down

Living it up
Living it up
I can feel it
Living it up
I got forward motion

Ooh - watch her dance
There must be one like her in every club in every town
But I don't mind if that the way she wants to be
There's something 'bout her that reminds me of me
She's my soul mate - we'll be together 'til the sun goes down

The sun goes down

Living it up
Living it up
I can feel it
Living it up
I got forward motion
