U2 Lyrics - Last Night On Earth

As the fuel goes down
Stops the car
Puts her feet outside in the rain
She's back on the machine
But it's sweet so far away

She feels the ground is giving way
But she thinks we're better off that way
The more you take the less you feel
The less you know the more you believe
The more you have the more it takes today

You got to give it away
(You got to give it away)
You got to give it away
(You got to give it away)
You got to give it away
(You got to give it away)

Well she don't care what it's worth
She's living like it's the last night on earth
The last night on earth

She's not waiting on a saviour to come
She's at the bus-stop with News of the World and the Sun
Sun, here it comes
She's not waiting for anyone

You got to give it away
(You got to give it away)
You got to give it away
(You got to give it away)
You got to give it away
(You got to give it away)

Well she don't care what it's worth
She's living like it's the last night on earth
The last night on earth

Slipping away
(The clock tells her that time is slipping)

Slip sliding...tonight
(Minute hands and seconds sticking)

Slipping away
(There's something she might be missing)

The world turns and we get dizzy
(The world turns and we get dizzy)

Slipping away
(Is it spinning for you)

(The way it's spinning for me)

She's living, living next week now
You know she's going to pay it back somehow
She hasn't been to bed in a week
She'll be dead soon then she'll sleep

You got to give it away
(You got to give it away)
You got to give it away
(You got to give it away)
You got to give it away
(You got to give it away)

She already knows it hurts
She's living like it's the last night on earth
The last night on earth
Last night on earth
Last night...
