We're crashing cars we used to share
With summer girls with summer hair
We're driving round, chasing the stars
But the party's busted up before it ever starts

I'll never let you go
Don't ever forget
Tell me you'll remember
Forever young
I'll never let you fall
It's not over yet
You and me forever
Forever young
We're forever young

Stop making plans, start making sense
Don't you believe any word they said
Sparked up, sparked up like a book of matches
Falling through the night and rising from the ashes

I'll never let you go
Don't ever forget
Tell me you'll remember
Forever young
I'll never let you fall
It's not over yet
You and me forever
Forever young
We're forever young

Don't come any closer
Don't tell me it's over
Don't kiss me goodbye
Here we are
Am I taking this too hard?
Don't say it's easy
The hardest part is leaving
Don't you wonder why
Suddenly we're all running out of time?

I'll never let you go
Don't ever forget
Tell me you'll remember
Forever young
I'll never let you fall
It's not over yet
You and me forever
Forever young
We're forever young
We're forever young
We're forever young

    General CommentI love this song.

    Its pretty and simple and amazing.

    To me its about wanting to never let someone go. Wanting to never leave the moment with them.

    General CommentI LOVE this song. I always love it when songs use the forever young concept. It seems to me as if the girl in the song is moving on and growing up, while the singer (William) isn't ready to do that just yet. He doesn't want her to forget him or how it feels to be young and in love. Hence, the use of "forever young." And the line "start making plans, start making sense/ don't you believe any word they said" sounds like the outside world is telling her that she needs to grow up, but he's trying to tell her that they don't have to. That's how I want to take it, anyway, because I'm with Blink-182's "What's My Age Again?" philosophy that we don't HAVE to grow up completely if we don't want to.

    General CommentI think it's WITH summer girls with summer hair... unless William's saying they're all girls. Also, it's "STOP making plans, start making sense"

    ahh, but I love this song. I agree though, the meaning is pretty simple. I saw them play this song last night at Warped Tour. It was incredible.

    General CommentI am not a fan of William's vocals in this song. He's not singing as much as he is just talking.

    Live, however, this song is brilliant.

    General Commenti think it's like staying young forever; kind of like that young-at-heart and in love or whatever thing.

    if that made any sense at all...

    General CommentI think it's about summer romances, and how the guy doesn't want it to end. He knows its irrational but he doesnt want to think about it. He wants to live in the moment and be "forever young".

    General Commentit can be something romantic..sure. but to me it's all about having fun and being young.

    you know, the whole going to bed at 5am and waking up at 3pm, talking and hanging out with your friends all night. for me it's the perfect song. friends are going their separate ways - college, work,moving out..wtvr. and this just sings about how no on will ever forget about this summer. carpe diem.
