Forever Young
Madness Lyrics


Oh, there was a time when I was younger
When all the nights and days were long
And everyday just getting stronger
Like a sunflower in the sun
In the sun

Well Mr Moon is counting backwards
Make the waters ebb and flow
And all the things we could and should have done
But them old regrets well they'll come and go
Just come and go

So, stay forever young
Dont you do what I have done
Oh, stay forever young
Before paradise lost and innocence gone

See the freshness of your young face
Like a candle in the gloom
In the brightness in your smiling eyes
They're lighting up the room
The whole room

So stay forever young
Dont you do what I have done
Oh, stay forever young
Before paradise lost
And innocence gone

Oh stay forever young
Dont you do what I have done
Oh, stay forever young
Before paradise lost
And innocence gone

Before paradise lost
And innocence gone

So stay forever young
Don't you do what I have done
Oh stay forever young
Before paradise lost
And innocence gone

Oh stay forever young
Don't you do what I have done
Oh stay forever young
Before paradise lost
And innocence gone

Before paradise lost
And innocence gone.

Georgi Orse

Oh, hubo un tiempo cuando era más joven 
Cuando todos los días y las noches eran largas 
Y todos los días,cada vez más fuertes 
Como un girasol en el sol, en el sol... 

En la Luna pude contar hacia atrás 
y hacer que el reflujo y el flujo de las aguas 
 de todas las cosas que pude y debería haber hecho 
sin  remordimientos, sin edad,   fluyan sin edad
Y que sólo vayan y vuelvan... 

Por lo tanto, permanecerè siempre joven 
No haciendo lo que he hecho 
Ohhh, asì estarè siempre joven 
antes de todo paraíso perdido

Y en inocencia 
Verè la frescura de nuestros rostros jòvenes 
Como una vela en la oscuridad 
En el brillo en sus ojos sonrientes 
iluminando la sala 

Toda la sala ... por lo tanto, permanece siempre joven 

No atañe lo que has hecho 
estaràs siempre joven 
Antes del paraíso perdido
y cuando se haya ido la inocencia 
Ohhh.... permaneceremos por siempre jòvenes.

We may long for days past, but the fact is we lived them - and weren't they great?

Cameron Ryder

@Riley Brady testing it out now. Seems to be working.

Vajda Veronika

I realize, that it's not an official video. But it's brilliant! Perfect for the song. Thank you.
This song has some bittersweet feeling in it - you would like to cry, but you're enthusiastic at the same time.

Roger Kay

Quality...I could cry for the 80's right now.

Kennedy Dry

I would not say that. Beginning of the decade is still good, but then it becomes crappy : melodies, sound (analog to numeric, e-batteries etc), it all goes down

Engine & Wheels

This song has made me quite emotional. I don’t know why but it has....maybe it’s because it’s a beautifully written piece of music made by Madness, one of my favourite bands.

Mystychrysm The Human Prism

I know what you mean. Johnny The Horse gets me...the lyrics & sad video. Check it out because as funny as they are they are serious as a heart attack.

Firey Flower

There is something emotional about this song

Robert Dominguez
