Queen - Who Wants To Live Forever



Queen was commissioned to write this for the movie Highlander, and Brian May wrote it after watching the first cut of the film. He wrote the line "Who wants to live forever" in a cab on his way home from the viewing of the film. Inspiration came from the scene where Connor Macleod (Christopher Lambert) takes his dying wife Heather (Biettie Edney) in his arms at the time of her death. This is also the scene where the song is played.


Lyrics


There's no time for us

There's no place for us

What is this thing that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us?


Who wants to live forever?

Who wants to live forever?

There's no chance for us

It's all decided for us

This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us


Who wants to live forever?

Who wants to live forever?


Who dares to love forever

When love must die?


But touch my tears with your lips

Touch my world with your fingertips


And we can have forever

And we can love forever

Forever is our today


Who wants to live forever?

Who wants to live forever?

Forever is our today


Who waits forever anyway?
