Lyrics
Why
Why can’t this moment last forever more
Tonight
Tonight eternity’s an open door
No
Don’t ever stop doing the things you do
Don’t go
In every breath I take I’m breathing you
Euphoria
Forever, ’til the end of time
From now on, only you and I
We’re going u-u-u-u-u-u-up
Euphoria
An everlasting piece of art
A beating love within my heart
We’re going u-u-u-u-u-u-up
We are here
We’re all alone in our universe
We are free
Where everything’s allowed and love comes first
Forever and ever together
We sail into infinity
We’re higher and higher and higher
We’re reaching for divinity
Euphoria
Forever, ’til the end of time
From now on, only you and I
We’re going u-u-u-u-u-u-up
Euphoria
An everlasting piece of art
A beating love within my heart
We’re going u-u-u-u-u-u-up
Forever
We sail into infinity
We’re higher
We’re reaching for divinity
Euphoria
Euphoria
We’re going u-u-u-u-u-u-up
Euphoria
An everlasting piece of art
A beating love within my heart
We’re going u-u-u-u-u-u-up
Euphoria
Euphoria
We’re going u-u-u-u-u-u-up
