Does anyone know this song?

I'm gonna live forever Forever and a day When I leave this world behind me I'll be singing all the way

I think the rest is about Nicodemus and Jesus and there is something about streets of gold... I haven't heard it in years but it is coming back to haunt me... can anyone help me out here?

Thanks, Annika

Annika, Joe sort of reminded me of this thread. I hope you don't think no one noticed it. If you've had no responses, it is likely because no one has an inkling, at least not yet. I'd say we're still working on it.

Didn't Queen have a hit song like that? Wasn't it the theme song fot the TV show, "Highlander"?

Isn't there supposed to be a Highlander movie coming out soon?

Well, the song by Queen that's used in "Highlander" is Princes of the Universe. Nope - not a match.
I usually encourage people to post lyrics instead of links, but not for pop songs.

Yet another year and a half. Surely someone besides Annika knows this.

Still working on it, just not very fast. Google check for phrases turned up empty just now.

Just like the songs I leave behind me I'm gonna live forever now. ... a stranger and hearts are in danger On smooth streets Paved with gold. ...


www.geocities.com/Nashville/1345/highwaymen.html
has the above lyric fragment... I couldn't get to the site to check out if there is more.

I got it from the site given by the guest by way of the Google cache. It does not seem to be the one in question.

From Live Forever written by Billy Joe Shaver and Eddy Shaver

When this old world is blown assunder
And all the stars fall from the sky
Remember someone really loves you
We'll live forever you and I

This does point up one of the (minor) problems with searches ~~ the paved with gold line is from another song on the page, True Love Travels A Gravel Road.

Every year or so, I think about this request. I don't know if it is still haunting Annika, but there is always a chance that someone new will see it and say, "Hey, I know that one!"

I'll throw a twist in to this thread. How about Bryan Adams "I don't want to live forever".

Lyrics copied from Lyrics Playground:

LIVE FOREVER
(Billy Joe Shaver / Eddy Shaver)

I'm gonna live forever.
I'm gonna cross that river.
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now.
You're gonna want to hold me
Just like I always told you.
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.

Nobody here will ever find me,
But I will always be around.
Just like the songs I leave behind me,
I'm gonna live forever now.

You fathers and you mothers,
Be good to one another.
Please try to raise your children right.
Don't let the darkness take 'em.
Don't make 'em feel forsaken.
Just lead them safely to the light.

When this old world is blown asunder,
And all the stars fall from the sky,
Remember someone really loves you.
We'll live forever you and I.

CHORUS: I'm gonna live forever.
I'm gonna cross that river.
I'm gonna catch tomorrow now.

CHORUS (x2)

[Recorded by Pat Green & Cory Morrow on "Songs We Wish We'd Written;" by The Highwaymen on "The Road Goes On Forever;" and by Joe Whiting on "Rocket in My Pocket."]
