Lyrics:

(LyricFind)

Let’s dance in style, let’s dance for a while

Heaven can wait we’re only watching the skies

Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst

Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever

We don’t have the power, but we never say never

Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip

The music’s for the sad man

Can you imagine when this race is won?

Turn our golden the faces into the sun

Praising our leaders, we’re getting in tune

The music’s played by the, the madman

Forever young

I want to be forever young

Do you really want to live forever?

Forever, and ever

Forever young

I want to be forever young

Do you really want to live forever?

Forever young

Some are like water, some are like the heat

Some are a melody and some are the beat

Sooner or later they all will be gone

Why don’t they stay young?

It’s so hard to get old without a cause

I don’t want to perish like a fading horse

Youth’s like diamonds in the sun

And diamonds are forever

So many adventures given up today

So many songs we forgot to play

So many dreams swinging out of the blue

Oh let it come true

Forever young

I want to be forever young

Do you really want to live forever

Forever, and ever?

Forever young

I want to be forever young

Do you really want to live forever

Forever, and ever?

Forever young

I want to be forever young

Do you really want to live forever

Forever young
