HE WILL LIVE FOREVER
Lyrics
The sky was dressed in black, as I remember,
That fateful twenty-fourth night of November,
The tragic year was nineteen ninety one,
My drivetime radio was babbling on,
When breaking news exploded in my head,
'The Great Pretender's passed away', they said.
Flamboyant style, he captured every show,
The Queen of Hearts or the King of Rock and Roll,
He played that game of fantasy so well,
As if he weaved a kind of magic spell,
Although he had it all, still not enough,
That crazy little thing we need called 'love',
We need called 'love'.
But HE WILL LIVE FOREVER,
In the gems he left behind,
HE WILL LIVE FOREVER,
In the music of our minds.
His legacy will never lose its sparkle or grow old,
HE'LL BE LOVED FOREVER,
In our heart and in our soul.
Someday, I hope to ramble round the streets of Zanzibar,
Down the alleyways of Stone Town, to the birthplace of a Star,
Whose journey was traumatic, but he wanted to break free,
Because that was the only way he could reach his destiny....

His legacy will never lose its sparkle or grow old,
HE'LL BE LOVED FOREVER,
In our heart....
Yes, HE WILL LIVE FOREVER,
In the gems he left behind,
HE WILL LIVE FOREVER,
In the music of our minds.
His legacy will never lose its sparkle or grow old,
HE'LL BE LOVED FOREVER,
In our heart and in our soul.
