*I Don’t Want to Live Forever* (Rewrite)

*I Don’t Want to Live Forever *

Here’s the way our story started

It’s my favorite one to share

Lived together then we parted

Now I long to go back there

We ran like streams through Indiana

To where the limestone quarries end

Then back to Terre Haute and places more remote

My dreams and memories call me back  to them

I don’t want to live forever

I just want to live with you

For the laughter that comes after

Funny things you say and do

I’ve got a stack of our old pictures

Some I’ve almost worn clear through

That is where I find forever

Frozen In the few

I’m clinging to

I’m grounded out in California

Odds of going home are thin

But I’ll be glad to wait

To meet at Heaven’s Gate

Then eternity I’d spend

But I don’t understand forever’

It’s a place erased of time

I barely comprehend

Right now, and then

How to leave the past behind

–music break–

If I could look into the I could look into the future

I’d predict a happy end

A life of luxury and pleasure

Won’t equal moments with my friend

We ran like streams through Indiana

And I’d do it all again

Back to Terre Haute and places more remote

Just to be with you my friend

I don’t want to live forever

I just want to live with you

For the laughter that comes after

Funny things you say and do

I’ve got a stack of our old pictures

Some I’ve almost worn clear through

That is where I find forever

Frozen In the few

I’m clinging to
