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 till the sun goes down

(Livin' it up, livin' it up)
I can feel it
(Livin' it up)
Is it a crazy notion?

(Livin' it up, livin' it up)
I can feel it
(Livin' 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 till the sun goes down

(Livin' it up, livin' it up)
I can feel it
(Livin' it up)
Is it a false emotion?

(Livin' it up, livin' it up)
I can feel it
(Livin' it up)
I got forward motion

So I'm a-taking you out but I'm a-faking, I'm married to the beat
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
(Livin' it up, livin' it up)
I can feel it
(Livin' 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, that's 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 till the sun goes down

The sun goes down
(Livin' it up, livin' it up)
I can feel it
(Livin' it up)
Is it a false emotion?

(Livin' it up, livin' it up)
I can feel it
(Livin' it up)
I got forward motion

(Livin' it up, livin' it up)
The sun goes down
(Livin' it up, livin' it up)
