  • Lyrics
  • I've seen the world, done it all
    Had my cake now
    Diamonds, brilliant, in Bel-Air now
    Hot summer nights, mid July
    When you and I were forever wild
    The crazy days, city lights
    The way you'd play with me like a child

    Will you still love me
    When I'm no longer young and beautiful?
    Will you still love me
    When I've got nothing but my aching soul?
    I know you will, I know you will
    I know that you will
    Will you still love me when I'm no longer beautiful?

    I've seen the world, lit it up
    As my stage now
    Channeling angels in a new age now
    Hot summer days, rock and roll
    The way you play for me at your show
    And all the ways, I got to know
    Your pretty face and electric soul

    Will you still love me
    When I'm no longer young and beautiful?
    Will you still love me
    When I've got nothing but my aching soul?
    I know you will, I know you will
    I know that you will
    Will you still love me when I'm no longer beautiful?

    Dear lord, when I get to heaven
    Please let me bring my man
    When he comes tell me that you'll let him in
    Father tell me if you can
    All that grace, all that body
    All that face, makes me wanna party
    He's my sun, he makes me shine like diamonds

    Will you still love me
    When I'm no longer young and beautiful?
    Will you still love me
    When I've got nothing but my aching soul?
    I know you will, I know you will
    I know that you will
    Will you still love me when I'm no longer beautiful?
    Will you still love me when I'm no longer beautiful?
    Will you still love me when I'm not young and beautiful?Writer/s: Elizabeth Grant, Rick Nowels
