Whoah, forever ain’t what it used to be. Whoah, forever ain’t what it used to be. Whoah, forever ain’t what it used to be. Whoah... He’s got himself a tattoo. It’s old and blue and faded, like the name it says and those words you say fade away. She’s got herself a ring she wears around her neck. But the phone don’t ring no more... tell me what the hell were you thinking? My daddy told me ain’t nothing for sure but death and taxes. My daddy told me ain’t nothing for sure but death and taxes. My daddy told me ain’t nothing for sure but death and taxes. My daddy told me... ain’t nothing for sure, no... In his hand he holds a plan, a promise of eternal life. On the side he spends his time cheating and selling lies. She thinks that she can buy her way to ever-after. All that money can’t buy you a clue... tell me what the hell were you thinking? Whoah, forever ain’t what it used to be. Whoah, forever ain’t what it used to be. Whoah, forever ain’t what it used to be. Whoah... After all this time, he’s still chasing forever... After all this time, she’s still chasing forever... After all this time, aren’t you still chasing forever... After all this time...
