Forever Young - Alphaville

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 going to 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 men

Can you imagine when this race is won Turn our golden faces into the sun Praising our leaders, we're getting in tune The music's played by the madmen CHORUS: Forever young, I want to be forever young Do you really want to live forever Forever -- and ever 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 couldn't happen today So many songs we forgot to play So many dreams swinging out of the blue We'll let them come true


Forever young...
