To my dear friend Silvana Alves (Mitcho) who left us sunday last. Today is her birthday. Happy B-day, little friend. God blessed your soul. I’ll miss you…

WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER

“Who Wants to Live Forever” is a song by the English rock band Queen. The song is the sixth track on the album “A Kind of Magic”, released in June 1986, and was written by guitarist Brian May for the soundtrack to the film “Highlander”, directed by Russell Mulcahy.

The song is used to frame the scenes in the film where Connor MacLeod must endure his beloved wife Heather growing old and dying while he, as an Immortal, remains forever young.
Sarah Brightman covered this track on her 1997 album, “Time to say Goodbye”.

WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER?
(Brian May)

There’s no time for us
There’s no place for us
What is this thing that builds our dreams
Yet tips ‘em ‘way from us

Who wants to live forever?
Who wants to live forever?
Ooooooo

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?
Ooooooo

Who dares to love forever? (Oh, whoa!)
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?

TRADUÇÃO EM PORTUGUÊS: QUEM QUER VIVER PARA SEMPRE
(Brian May)

Não há tempo para nós
Não há lugar para nós
O que é essa coisa que constrói nossos sonhos
E vai para longe de nós?

Quem quer viver para sempre?
Quem quer viver para sempre?

Não há chance para nós
É tudo decidido para nós
Esse mundo tem somente um momento doce
Reservado para nós

Quem quer viver para sempre?
Quem quer viver para sempre?

Quem ousa amar para sempre?
Quando o amor deve morrer?

Oh! Toque minhas lágrimas com seus lábios
Toque meu mundo com a ponta dos dedos
E nós poderemos ter para sempre
E nós poderemos amar para sempre
Sempre é o nosso hoje

Quem quer viver para sempre?
Quem quer viver para sempre?
Sempre é o nosso hoje
Quem espera para sempre de qualquer maneira?
