Young Forever
by Jay-Z



Intro:
Let's dance in style
Let's dance for awhile
Heaven can wait
We're only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not
Let us die young or let us live forever
We don't have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sand pit life is a short trip
The music's for the sad man

Chorus:
Forever young, I wanna be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever
Forever young, I wanna be forever young, forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever young

Verse 1:
So we living life like a video, when the sun is always out and you never get old and the champagne's always cold and the music's always good and the pretty girls just happen to stop by in the hood and they hop their pretty ass up on the hood of that pretty ass car without a wrinkle in today, cause there's no tomorrow, just a picture perfect day to last a whole lifetime and it never is cause all we have to do is hit rewind best to stay in the moment ,smoke some weed, drink some wine, reminisce, talk some shit, forever young is in ya mind, leave a mark that can erase neither space nor time, so when the director yells cut, I'll be fine, I'm forever young

Chorus:

Verse 2:
Fear not when and fear not why, fear not much while we're alive, life is for living not living uptight, see us somewhere up in the sky, fear not die, I'll be alive for a million years, bye byes are not for legends, I'm forever young my name shall survive, to the darkest blocks of a kitchen's stove of a Pyrex pots, my name shall be passed down to generations while debating up in barber shops, young son hung here, surely that n*gga from here, with a little ambition just what we can become here and as the father passed this story down to his son's ears, younger getting younger every year, yeah, so if you love me baby this is how you let me know, don't ever let me go, that's how you let me know, baby

-go to Chorus-

Just let it run...
Slamming Bentley doors, hopping out of Porshes, popping up on Forbes' list, gorgeous, hold up, n*ggas thought I lost it, they be talking bullsh*t, I be talking more sh*t, they nauseous, hold up, I be here forever, you know I'm on my false sh*t, I aint went foreclosure, I will never forfeit, less than four bars Google bring the chorus in, did you get the picture yet, I'm painting you a portrait, of young...
