Lyrics

You turn me on, you lift me up
And like the sweetest cup I'd share with you
You lift me up, don't you ever stop, I'm here with you

Now it's all or nothing

Ok, recipe for enjoying Simple Minds, group of friends, mixed company preferable as always, bottle of something potent, a nice sound system, stir thoroughly, and sing your a** off to each other, enjoy

This song has a way of reaching down inside me and grabbing my soul every time I hear it. One of my all time favorites!
Just flashed back to time when I was free of so many burdens, when it was about enjoying the moment.

Simple Minds. Simply Great!
Great live version. I'll definatly have to check out the whole album.
Fave song by them; so haunting and ethereal.
I'd never realized how great this band is until I heard this live version.
Takes me back to 1985 when I just learned that I got an "F" on my eighth-grade term paper. The vice-princip a l was so nice; he could see how bummed I was -- "Go on home and come back tomorrow. Take a week to revise the Paper and I'll talk to your english comp. teacher." This tune was on when I got home and started the revision. So the song reminds me of a dude who cared.
"Just letting Go"---whatev e r that Takes!!!!--- L u v c h i c
Great song.
