[Intro: Mr. Hudson] Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while 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 sandpit, life is a short trip The music's for the sad man Forever young, I wanna be forever young Do you really want to live forever, forever, and ever? Forever young (young) I wanna be (Aye, may the best of your todays) Forever young (Be the worst of your tomorrows) Do you really want to live forever (But we ain't even thinkin' that far) Forever (ya know what I mean?) Forever young [Verse 1: Jay-Z] So we livin' life like a video Where the sun is always out and you never get old And the champagne's always cold and the music is always good And the pretty girls just happen to stop by in the hood And they hop they pretty a** up on the hood of that pretty a** car Without a wrinkle in today, cuz there's no tomorrow Just a picture perfect day that last a whole lifetime And it never ends cause all we have to do is hit rewind So let's just stay in the moment, smoke some weed, drink some wine Reminisce, talk some sh**, forever young is in your mind Leave a mark they can't erase, neither space nor time So when the director yells cut, I'll be fine I'm forever young [Hook] Forever young, I wanna be forever young Do you really want to live forever, forever, and ever? Forever young, I wanna be forever young Do you really want to live forever, forever? Forever young [Verse 2: Jay-Z] Fear not when, fear not why, fear not much while we're alive Life is for living, not living uptight, 'till you're somewhere up in the sky Fear not die, I'll be alive for a million years, bye bye's Are not for legends, I'm forever young, my name shall survive Through the darkest blocks, over kitchen stoves, over Pyrex pots My name shall be pa**ed down to generations While debatin' up in barber shops Young slung, hung here, showed that a n***a from here With a little ambition, just what we can become here And as the father pa** the story down to his son's ears Young'll get 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 [Hook] [Verse 3: Jay-Z] Slammin' Bentley doors, hoppin' outta Porsches Poppin' up on Forbes' list, gorgeous (hold up) n***as thought I lost it, they be talking bullsh** I be talking more sh**, they nauseous (hold up) I'll be here forever, you know I'm on my fall sh** And I ain't with foreclosure, I will never forfeit Less than four bars, Guru bring the chorus in Did you get the picture yet? I'm painting you a portrait Of young [Hook] Forever young, I wanna be forever young Do you really want to live forever, forever, and ever?
