Live Forever
Nasty Cherry Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

My life's too rock to roll
Everybody thinks that I've lost control
But hot pills, take 'em all
Gotta pop pills like birth control
Stop, I'll lock and load
Never been known to do what I'm told, blah

Is that you at my door
I'm laid out on the floor from the night before
Sleeping beauty, but I'm not so pure
Sleeping beauty, rotten to the core

When I wake up next to you
And I'm so fucking confused, oh

Tried to escape, so
You make me wanna live forever
I'm trying to hate you
But you know I'd rather come together
Yeah, it's too late, it's too late, yeah, it's too late
'Cause I tried, tried
To wanna live forever

Last night I killed them all
Clipped my wings and let me fall
I'm still too rock to roll, everybody thinks I've lost control

When I wake up next to you
And I'm so fucking confused, oh

Tried to escape, so
You make me wanna live forever
I'm trying to hate you
But you know I'd rather come together
Yeah, it's too late, it's too late, yeah, it's too late
'Cause I tried, I tried
To wanna live forever

Tried, I tried
Just like your favorite centerfold
Tried, I tried
Just like your favorite centerfold
When I wake up next to you

Tried to escape, so
You make me wanna live forever
I'm trying to hate you
But you know I'd rather come together
Yeah, it's too late, it's too late, yeah, it's too late
'Cause I tried, tried
To wanna live forever

Tried, I tried
To wanna live forever




Tried, I tried
Just like your favorite centerfold

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Nasty Cherry's song "Live Forever" suggest conflicting feelings of destruction and immortality, symbolized through references to both sleeping beauty and being too "rock to roll." The song opens with the singer referencing taking pills "like birth control" as a way to feel in control amidst a perception that she has lost control of her life. The references to clipped wings and sleeping beauty imply a desire to escape the reality of a situation that appears overwhelming, but the singer finds herself unable to resist the attraction of someone who offers an alternative path.


The chorus is a plea to live forever, to transcend the limitations of this mortal life through connection with someone else. This connection offers a way to cope with the confusion and ambiguity of the present moment, even though it is also the source of that confusion. The repeated phrase "tried, I tried" suggests a desperate attempt to bridge the gap between the desire for safety and the desire for something more unpredictable and exhilarating, as encapsulated by the image of a "favorite centerfold."


Overall, the lyrics of "Live Forever" suggest a complex set of emotions and desires around the need for control and a struggle to find meaning in a chaotic world, with the chorus implying that it is through love and connection that we can find a way to transcend the limits of our own mortality.

My life's too rock to roll
Everybody thinks that I lost control
But how it feels to take 'em all
Gotta pop pills like birth control
Stop, I'll lock and load
