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
Years like diamonds in the sun
And diamonds are forever

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

(CHORUS)

About this song

On the surface, this is a hopeful song celebrating the virtues of youth, but a closer listen reveals a fear of aging and death. The song was written during the Cold War, where the singer is "hoping for the best, but expecting the worst; are you gonna drop the bomb or not?" Alphaville was a German Synthpop/Rock music group. The song was not a big hit when it was released, but has become well known as a result of its use in movies and TV shows. Among its uses: The TV show Passions, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (episode 103: "Underage Drinking: A National Concern")
