Forever Young by Alphaville
I had a 16 year old classmate die in a car accident our junior year of high school. This song was played at the beginning of her funeral. Even though the song was more than ten years old (at the time), it touched everyone.
1 year later, it became our senior class song. I'm 32 now, and I still love it.Lyrics
Lets dance in style, lets dance for a while.
Heaven can wait were only watching the skies.
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst.
Are you going to drop the bomb or not?
Let us die young or let us live forever.
We dont 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 were getting in tune.
The musics played by the madmen.
Forever young, I want to be forever young.
Do you really want to live forever? forever and ever.
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 dont they stay young?
Its so hard to get old without a cause.
I dont want to perish like a fading horse.
Youth is like diamonds in the sun.
And diamonds are forever.
So many adventures couldnt happen today.
So many songs we forgot to play.
So many dreams are swinging out of the blue.
We let them come true.
