  • I wanna be immortal
    Like a God in the sky
    I wanna be a silk flower
    Like I'm never gonna die
    I wanna live forever
    Forever in your heart
    And we'll always be together
    From the end to the start

    That's what we do it for
    To reserve a place
    It's just another part of the human race
    That's what we do it for
    To reserve a space
    In history, it's just
    Part of the human race, race
    (Race, race, race, race, race, race)

    I'm forever chasing after time
    But everybody dies, dies
    If I could buy forever at a price
    I would buy it twice, twice
    But if the earth ends in fire
    And the seas are frozen in time
    There'll be just one survivor
    The memory that I was yours
    And you were mine
    Everybody dies, dies
    Chasing after time, time

    When you love somebody
    They'll always leave too soon
    But a memory, a memory
    Can make a flower bloom
    We wanna be remembered
    Don't wanna live in vain
    But nothing lasts forever
    This world is in a losing game

    I wanna mean something to somebody else
    Feel a significance in the real world
    It's not enough to live out a lucky life

    I'm forever chasing after time
    But everybody dies, dies
    If I could buy forever at a price
    I would buy it twice, twice
    But if the earth ends in fire
    And the seas are frozen in time
    There'll be just one survivor
    The memory that I was yours
    And you were mine
    Everybody dies, dies
    Chasing after time, time

    No I don't wanna be afraid,
    Afraid to die, die, die
    I just wanna be able to say
    That I have lived my life, life
    Oh, all the things that humans do
    To leave behind a little proof
    But the only thing that doesn't die is love, love, love
    Love, love

    I'm forever chasing after time
    But everybody dies, dies
    If I could buy forever at a price
    I would buy it twice, twice
    But if the earth ends in fire
    And the seas are frozen in time
    There'll be just one survivor
    The memories of our lifetime
    Everybody dies, dies
    Chasing after time, time

    So keep me alive
    So keep me alive
    So keep me alive, alive Writer/s: MARINA LAMBRINI DIAMANDIS
