Forever Young
Album: Glee: The Music, The Graduation Album
Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Three
Released: May 15, 2012
By: Rod Stewart
Sung by: Will Schuester
Place: The Choir Room
Episode: Goodbye

Forever Young by Rod Stewart is featured in Goodbye, the twenty-second and final episode of Season Three. It is sung by Will.

After watching the original five members perform Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat while reflecting on how far they've come since their first performance, Will gives them their final assignment, to say "Goodbye" to each other. He performs this song as his own gift to the graduating seniors. As the New Directions watch, some seem teary eyed, whilst some seem delighted. It is the first released song to be performed in the episode.


May the good Lord be with you
Down every road that you roam
And may sunshine and happiness
Surround you when you're far from home
And may you grow to be proud, dignified and true
And do unto others as you'd have done to you

Be courageous and be brave
And in my heart you'll always stay
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young

May good fortune be with you
May your guiding light be strong
Build a stairway to Heaven
With a prince or a vagabond

And may you never love in vain
And in my heart you will remain
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young, yeah

And when you finally fly away
I'll be hoping that I served you well
For all the wisdom of a lifetime
No one can ever tell

But whatever road you choose
I'm right behind you, win or lose
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
For, forever young, forever young


  • The final song by Will to be featured in Season Three.
  • Fourth time in the series that Will plays guitar in a scene.
  • Parallels the director's cut of the pilot episode where in both instances Will says goodbye through song. On both occasions, he also plays guitar.
  • The third time in a row Will has had a solo in the final episode of the season.


  • At the beginning, you can see Artie lean over and lay on Mercedes, but in the next shot he's sitting up straight, as if he never leaned over.
  • Also, at the beginning of the song, Will sings "Ooooo" later than the recording started.
