We are all mortals, aren't we? Any moment this could go

from Frank Ocean – Strawberry Swing Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In carpe diem poetry, this is a line used to convince girls to fuck (cf. Andrew Marvell’s “To His Coy Mistress”)

In relation to the line before this, once you discover something new, you’re soon telling it goodbye. Life moves fast and changes before we realize it. Frank reminds us that we have to live the most out of life in the moment you are in, because death doesn’t discriminate and life can be taken from us at any moment.
