Nineteen Forever

What does "Nineteen Forever" mean?

Well, it's a title of a kick-ass song from Joe Jackson's underrated 1989 album, "Blaze of Glory."

So why "Nineteen Forever?"

Well, it includes this lyric:
You better believe it - you know my dream's still alive
You can love it or leave it
But I'm never gonna be 35

And, today, I turn 35.

That line of the song always stuck with I was supposed to accomplish something by the time I reached 35. If so, I guess I have a year to do something meaningful...before I hit 36.
