Shirley Bassey - Who Wants To Live Forever (1995 Live)

1995 - Shirley Bassey performs this classic Queen Rock Group song, 'Who Wants To Live Forever' in her own unique commanding vocal style. I have tried to clean up my video of this great performance, and I believe it is a little better than the previous upload. Shirley performed this song on the Des O'Connor TV Show in 1995. She recorded and released this song as a track on her 1995 album titled, 'Shirley Bassey Sings the Movies'. Hopefully, this great performance will come on TV again so I can obtain a better quality video.

There's no time for us
There's no place for us
What is this thing that builds our dreams
Yet slips away from us?

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

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?

Who dares to love forever
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?
