“18 Til I Die” by Bryan Adams
The singer’s disposition in “18 til I Die” is exactly as its title implies. That is to say Bryan Adams has committed himself to possessing a youthful disposition, forever. Within the context of the lyrics, that fundamentally means that he is not going to let himself be bogged down by cares of life which are indicative of aging. Also he is committed to ‘having a ball’, i.e. a good time, alongside others. So if nothing else, it is pretty clear that the vocalist idealizes a youthful spirit over an aged one.
