Alphaville - Forever Young (Demo 2) Lyrics

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 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, the mad men

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

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 let them come true

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

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

  2. Ugly girl333

    I'm in love with Marian's voice!😭❤️

  3. ToeCutter

    This version is much better. The released version sounds compromised, the part where he things "Little fascist lady she loves you so" in the new version sounds like mumbling "Darararara".

  24. Drumline Archives

    Does anyone know where I can find a version of this with just the vocal track? I need it for sampling purposes...

  25. John Schlobohm

    From what I've read, the original song was written about the cold war. Some of the original artists for this song lived in Germany and were deeply affected by the divsion between the East and West German states and the constant threat from the East and the Soviet Union, with it's nuclear missiles.

  26. FJoeForty

    Great song, but these fuckers are making it impossible to find the demo release of Bob Dylan's "Forever young" The good one that doesn't sound like an old worn out asshole.

  27. Doomsday Girl

    Love this song!

  28. adess33

  29. iamkevork

  31. killerrocker18

    It's not about the AMERICANS bombing the japanese it's about the COLD WAR!!!


    It's about Americans bombing Japan. How coward!

  33. Glamagal20091

    ...if they changed some of the words, of course.

  34. Glamagal20091

    Zoe Ball on BBC Radio 2 played this a few days ago. I hadn't heard it for ages and have seldom heard it being aired since its release in 1984. It should have been a big hit in the UK.

  35. TIKIMAN198

    Why can't I sleep while I'm thinking of you...

  36. TIKIMAN198

  40. alabel12345

    Really great voice

  41. Follguy

    Cool imagery here, but I don't like this version of the song. The intonation is all wrong. It sounds sloppy.

  42. DeadMansPartyFilms

    I have goosebumps...

  43. MarkVL

    Wow, this is very interesting.
    Marian's voice pure without overdubs; great.

  44. Christoffer Boman

    The photo of the soldier holding a wounded child is taken by photographer Michael Yon for his book "Moment of Truth in Iraq." Highly recommended!

  45. Hartmut Chen

    For better soundquality add "&fmt=18" or "&fmt=6" at the end of the URL. May only work in IE and in usermadevideos.
