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.

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.

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

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.

Andrew Wilkins

God I miss my youth ......

Joe Mars
