Are you gonna drop the bomb or not

Let us stay young or let us live forever
We don't have the power but we never say never
Sitting in the sandpit life is a short trip
The music's for the sadman

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn out all the faces into the sun
Praising our leaders we're getting in tune
The music's played by the madman

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...

Solo...

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")
