Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
C G Am F | G Dm F Am

Verse 1:
C                  G                        Am
  Let's start in style, let's dance for a while
            F                             G
Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies
                Dm                      F
Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst
                        Am
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?

C              G                      Am
  Let us stay young or let us live forever
                   F                       G
We don't have the power, but we never say never
                Dm                        F
Sitting in the sandpit, life is a short trip
                     Am
The music's for the sad men

C           G                        Am
  Can you imagine when this race is won?
                  F              G
Turn out all the faces into the sun
              Dm                        F
Praising our leaders, we're getting in tune
                           Am
The music's played by the madman

Chorus:
C          G
  Forever young
           Am         F
I want to be forever young
G                        Am
  Do you really want to live forever?
F          G
  Forever,   you'll never

C          G
  Forever young,
           Am         F
I want to be forever young
G                        Am
  Do you really want to live forever?
F G          C
    Forever young.

Verse 2:
C                G                        Am
  Some are like water, some are like the heat
            F                       G
Some are a melody and some are the beat
           Dm                     F
Sooner or later they all will be gone
                     Am
Why don't they stay young?

C                     G              Am
  It's so hard to get old without a cause
                 F                    G
I don't want to perish like a fading horse
            Dm              F
Years like diamonds in the sun
                    Am
And diamonds are forever

C            G                   Am
  So many advantages given up today
         F                   G
So many songs we forgot to play
          Dm                         F
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
                 Am
Oh let it come true

Chorus:
C          G
  Forever young
           Am         F
I want to be forever young
G                        Am
  Do you really want to live forever?
F          G
  Forever,   you'll never

C          G
  Forever young
           Am         F
I want to be forever young
G                        Am
  Do you really want to live forever?
F          G
  Forever,   you'll never

C          G
  Forever young,
           Am         F
I want to be forever young
G                        Am           F G
  Do you really want to live forever?
