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,
Don't have the power but we never say never,
Sitting in the sandpit life is a short trip,
Music's for the sad man

Can you imagine when this race is run,
Turn our golden faces into the sun,
Praising our leaders getting in tune,
The music's played by the mad man

Forever young, I wanna be forever young,
Do you really wanna live forever?
Forever forever
Forever young, I wanna be forever young,
Do you really wanna live forever?
Forever forever

Some are like water some are like the heat,
Some are the melodies some are the beat,
Sooner or later they'll all be gone,
Why don't they stay young?
It's hard to get old without a cause,
I don't want to perish like a fading voice,
Youth is like diamonds in the sun,
And diamonds are forever,
So many adventures couldn't happened today,
So many songs that we forgot to play,
So many dreams swinging out in the blue,
We let them come true
Forever young I wanna be forever young,
Do you really wanna live forever?
Forever, forever
Forever young, I wanna be forever young,
Do you really wanna live forever?
Forever, forever
Forever young, I wanna be forever young,
Do you really wanna live forever?
Forever, forever
Forever young, I wanna to be forever young
Do you really wanna live forever?
Forever, forever...

    this is seriously one of the meaningful songs written in my opinion. to alot of people these lyrics would mean nothing but to me they mean so much. the whole concept of how quickly life can end and how you should make the most of life never really made sense to me... i was always like... life is the longest thing we've got. but when some one very close to me died it suddenly all made sense. they were still young enough to do so much with their life. and when they passed away all i had left were the memories.

    Hahaha at the yolo comment! And sorry anon for your loss... I think this song, like all music has different meanings for everyone. For me it's just an expression of wishing to be forever young. I know time will never stop and we'll all age one day but deep down i never ever want to grow up.
