Queen‘s power ballad, “Who Wants to Live Forever” from the original Highlander movie (1986), is imbued with a haunting melody and equally haunting lyrics. This song came into my life at a time when I thought the relationship I was in would last forever. But it didn’t. I walked away…moved away…because neither of us was in the right emotional place to make it last forever. It was the right decision for both of us.
There was literally no time for us – no place for us.
It’s been 33 years, and this song, and those memories are still fresh for me.
