Rod Stewart – Forever Young lyrics

(are. Stewart /J. Cregan / K. Savigar)

May the good lord be with you
Down every road you roam
And may sunshine and happiness
Surround you when you're far from home
And may you grow to be proud
Dignified and true
And do unto others
As you'd have done to you
Be courageous and be brave
And in my heart you'll always stay
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young

May good fortune be with you
May your guiding light be strong
Build a stairway to heaven
With a prince or a vagabond

And may you never love in vain
And in my heart you'll always remain
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
Forever young
Forever young

And when you finally fly away
I'll be hoping that I served you well
For all the wisdom of a lifetime
No one can ever tell

But whatever road you choose
I'm right behind you, win or lose
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
For, forever young, forever young

Forever Young meanings

  • d
    Words of wisdom and love, from a parent to a son who has been released from her grip, and then freed into this tricky thing called "life," with the sincerest hopes that he will remember--and use--what he already knows, as taught by those who truly want God's best for him. I know that he has what it takes--but does he? I have faith that he will make the transfer. This is one of his favorite songs; a great song that holds true from generation to generation. And always will. I dedicate this song to you, cvh! Happy 23RD and many, many, more! Live them well. Love Always, Mom.
