Live in the Moment
Portugal. The Man Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

My home
Is a girl with eyes like wishing wells
I'm not alone
But I'm still lone, lonely
When I was young
Always go below the midnight sun
Those days are done
But I'm still glowing

Ooh la la la la la
Let's live in the moment
Come back Sunday morning
A lie, oh well
When you're gone
Goodbye, so long, farewell

Ooh la la la la la
Let's live in the moment
Come back Sunday morning
With that soul to sell
When you're gone
Goodbye, so long, farewell

My home
Is a girl who can't wait for time to tell
God only knows
We don't need history
When your family
Swinging from the branches of a tree
God only knows
We don't need ghost stories

Ooh la la la la la
Let's live in the moment
Come back Sunday morning
A lie, oh well
When you're gone
Goodbye, so long, farewell

Ooh la la la la la
Let's live in the moment
Come back Sunday morning
With that soul to sell
When you're gone
Goodbye, so long, farewell

Ooh I can't believe it
Nothing's gonna comfort me now

Ooh I can't believe it
Nothing's gonna comfort me now

Ooh la la la la la
Let's live in the moment
Come back Sunday morning
A lie, oh well
When you're gone
Goodbye, so long, farewell

Ooh la la la la la
Let's live in the moment
Come back Sunday morning
With that soul to sell
When you're gone
Goodbye, so long, farewell

Oh my god I can't believe my eyes
Wake up everybody you know
Come and watch the garden grow
I'll see you when you get there

Oh my god I can't believe my eyes
Wake up everybody you know
Come and watch the garden grow
I'll see you when you get there




I'll see you when you get there
I'll see you when you get there

My home
The place where I belong


Is a girl with eyes like wishing wells
I'm in a loving relationship with a girl who has enchanting eyes


I'm not alone
I have a companion in life


But I'm still lone, lonely
I feel solitary deep within


When I was young
In my youthful years


Always go below the midnight sun
I had the freedom to do things I love, even at night


Those days are done
But that phase of life is over now


But I'm still glowing
Yet, I remain happy and positive


Ooh la la la la la
Let's live life to the fullest


Let's live in the moment
Let's enjoy and cherish the current period


Come back Sunday morning
And feel the happiness like we do on weekends


A lie, oh well
Even if it's not completely true


When you're gone
When you've left my side


Goodbye, so long, farewell
I'll miss you a lot


My home
The place where I find solace


Is a girl who can't wait for time to tell
I'm in love with a girl who is excited to see what the future holds for us


God only knows
We can only hope for the best


We don't need history
We don't have to dwell on past incidents, it's time to move on


When your family
Growing up in a family


Swinging from the branches of a tree
Spending childhood days having fun and being carefree


God only knows
We can only hope for the best


We don't need ghost stories
There's no need for scary tales from the past


Ooh I can't believe it
I'm filled with surprise


Nothing's gonna comfort me now
I'm feeling restless and uneasy


Oh my god I can't believe my eyes
I'm even more shocked now


Wake up everybody you know
It's time to be aware and get going


Come and watch the garden grow
Enjoy the beauty around us


I'll see you when you get there
We'll meet again at the end, whenever that may be
