  • 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

    Forever young
    I wanna be forever young
    Do you really want to live forever?
    Forever and ever
    Forever young I wanna be
    Forever young
    Do you really want to live forever?
    Forever, forever young

    So we live a life like a video
    When the sun is always out and you never get old
    And the champagne's always cold
    And the music is always good
    And the pretty girls just happened to stop by in the hood
    And they hop their pretty ass up on the hood of that pretty ass car
    Without a wrinkle in today
    'Cause there is no tomorrow
    Just some picture perfect day
    To last a whole lifetime
    And it never ends
    'Cause all we have to do is hit rewind
    So lets just stay in the moment, smoke some weed
    Drink some wine,
    Reminisce talk some shit forever young is in your mind
    Leave a mark that can't erase neither space nor time
    So when the director yells cut
    I'll be fine
    I'm forever young

    Forever young
    I wanna be forever young
    Do you really want to live forever?
    Forever and ever
    Forever young I wanna be
    Forever young
    Do you really want to live forever?
    Forever, forever

    Fear not when, fear not why
    Fear not much while were alive
    Life is for living not living up tight
    See ya somewhere up in the sky
    Fear not die, I'll be alive for a million years, bye bye
    So not for legends, I'm forever young
    My name shall survive
    Through the darkest blocks, over kitchen stoves
    Over Pyrex pots, my name shall be passed down to generations
    While debating up in barber shops, young slung, hung here
    Shorty, the nigga from here
    With a little ambition just what we can become here
    And as the father passed his story down to his sons ears
    Younger kid, younger every year, yeah
    So if you love me baby this is how you let me know
    Don't ever let me go, that's how you let me know, baby

    Forever young
    I wanna be forever young
    Do you really want to live forever?
    Forever and ever
    Forever young I wanna be
    Forever young
    Do you really want to live forever?
    Forever, forever

    Slamming Bentley doors
    Hopping out of Porsche's
    Popping up on Forbes lists
    Gorgeous
    Hold up
    Niggas thought I lost it
    They be talking bullshit
    I be talking more shit
    They nauseous
    Hold up
    I'll be here forever
    You know, I'm on my fall shit
    And I ain't waiting for closure, I will never forfeit
    Less than four bars
    Guru bring the chorus in
    Did you get the picture yet
    I'm painting you a portrait of young

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