INTRO:
|A/E   | (Arpeggiated Guitar) 


VERSE 1:
A              E                       F#m
Let's dance in style, lets dance for a while,
           D                            C#m
Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies.
               F#m                    D
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst,
                          C#m
Are you going to drop the bomb or not?


VERSE 2:
A          E                       F#m
Let us die young or let us live forever,
                  D                      C#m
We don't have the power but we never say never.
             F#m                D
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip,
                    C#m
The music's for the sad men.


VERSE 3:
A       E                         F#m
Can you imagine when this race is won,
                D              C#m
Turn our golden faces into the sun.
             F#m                   D
Praising our leaders we're getting in tune,
                          C#m
The music's played by the mad men.


CHORUS 1:
A       E                   F#m     D
Forever young, I want to be forever young,
C#m                   F#m           D        C#m
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever?


INSTRUMENTAL 1:
|A E,      F#m  D|
|C#m F#m    D C#m|


VERSE 4: 
A             E                        F#m
Some are like water, some are like the heat,        
           D                       C#m
Some are a melody and some are the beat.
          F#m                    D
Sooner or later they all will be gone,
                    C#m
Why don't they stay young?


VERSE 5:
A                   E             F#m
It's so hard to get old without a cause,
                D                     C#m
I don't want to perish like a fleeing horse.
             F#m             D
Youth's like diamonds in the sun,
                 C#m
And diamonds are forever.


CHORUS 2:
A       E                   F#m     D
Forever young, I want to be forever young,
C#m                   F#m           D        C#m
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever?
A       E                   F#m     D
Forever young, I want to be forever young,
C#m                   F#m           D        C#m
Do you really want to live forever? Forever, forever?


INSTRUMENTAL 2: (Fuzzed and Wahed)
|A E,      F#m  D|
|C#m F#m    D C#m|


CHORUS 3 & CODA:
A         E                 F#m     D
Forever young, I want to be forever young,
C#m                   F#m           D        C#m
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever?
A         E                 F#m     D
Forever young, I want to be forever young,
C#m7                  F#m           D       (Stop with fading Fuzz-Wha)
Do you really want to live forever? Forever? -------

NOTES:
1.  Youth Group is a rock band based in Newtown, Sydney, Australia. Built around 
the pure vocals of singer Toby Martin and clean production of Wayne Connolly, the 
sound of Youth Group is reminiscent of indie rock artists such as Teenage Fanclub, 
Pavement and Death Cab For Cutie.  The band formed in Sydney in the late 1990s and 
has released four albums, three of which have gained worldwide release. They achieved 
major success in 2006 when their cover of Alphaville's "Forever Young," which had been 
recorded for the soundtrack of the US TV drama The O.C., was released as a single 
and reached No.1 in Australia, attaining platinum status.

2.  This TAB follows their original studio recording and is in a different key from 
their live performance, as seen on Channel 7's 'Sunrise'.
