Nothing Lasts Forever

Ray Davies, released on Preservation: Act 2, © Davray Music Ltd. 1974

.

[Flash:] When we were young and green

We shared our dreams together,

And you were my friend.

.

[Belle:] We had our good times pal,

We thought they'd last forever.

But nothing lasts forever,

Nothing lasts forever.

Time goes by and people change

It's best we go our separate ways

And it was wrong to think our love would never end

My friend

Nothing lasts forever,

Nothing lasts forever.

Time goes by it takes us all,

Nations crumble and empires fall

And who are we

To think that we would always be,

You see nothing lasts forever,

Nothing lasts forever.

.

[Flash:] I know that you'll survive

And you'll get by whatever.

Though you say goodbye.

My love will never die,

It will last forever.

.

Your love will die but mine will last forever,

Your love will fade but mine will last forever.

Your feeling might go but mine will last forever.

And though you're gone you're in my mind forever.
