Soak it in 'cause it's the last you'll ever see


Senior Member
Hello, I've faced an unclear phrase 'soak something in', in a sentence: "Soak it in 'cause it's the last you'll ever see" and it's probably not linked to penetrating of liquid, but somehow, maybe to enjoying?

It's from a song 'Shiny' Moana, by the context a big decapod crab Tomatoa said it to the demigod named Maui, thinking that after his song Maui will pass away. I guess so.

Could you explain to me the meaning of this phrase? Is it a slang? Thank you so much in advance! :)

    Hello MrRise, there's a previous thread here which explains the meaning, especially posts 2 ("immerse herself in the situation/experience and appreciate the surroundings and atmosphere in a relaxed manner") and 6 ("to absorb mentally") in that thread.
