Young men
They don't take what they've been given
And young men
They write songs about young women
They just wanna live forever
They just wanna live forever, amen
In a song when they're gone
Amen

And girls
You know I hear that they buy potions
And girls
They buy creams and lotions
They just wanna live forever
They just wanna live forever, amen
Like a day that never fades
Amen

And young brides
They live on through their children
And architects
They live on through their buildings
And presidents
Get statues of themselves
Novelists
Get their books on dusty shelves

But old men
They are never in a hurry
And old men
Their face is free from worry
But they don't care to live forever
They don't care to live forever, amen
Just to greet the end like a friend
Amen

And the stone
It returns to the ground
There are no ghosts
And no promises of sacred sounds
And all the statutes disintegrate
And every word fades from every page

Young men
We don't take what we've been given
Young men
We write songs about young women
We all just wanna live forever
We are sorry we will never
