They Want To Live Forever

from Gravity Makes The Flame Rise by Michael Guy Bowman

/

lyrics

When the young rebellion rides
At the crest of a raising tide
In the dance at the world's end
You better watch your back, my friend

They come on like kamikaze planes
They got the chemicals in their veins
They want to know where the danger lies
And the magazine man cries

They want to live forever
They want to have it all
They want to kiss their idols
They want to break the walls
They want to die for love
Before the love just dies, dies
They want to live forever
They want to live forever

When the true believers run
Through the fire of the falling sun
In the clash of the new and old
You better hope that the water's cold

They want to know what heaven's worth
They're gonna make a little hell on earth
They got a ticket to the teenage dream
And so the morning headline screams

They want to live forever
They want to have it all
They want to kiss their idols
They want to break the walls
They want to die for love
Before the love just dies, dies
They want to live forever
They want to live forever and ever and ever and ever
And ever and ever and ever and ever

They want to live forever
They want to have it all
They want to kill their idols
They want to break the walls
They want to die for love
Before the love just dies, dies
They want to live forever
They want to live forever and ever and ever and ever
And ever and ever and ever and ever
