    even in my years to come

    The sentence below is from Destiny Childs' song Survivor.

    ~ Even in my years to come, I'm still gonna be here.

    What's the meaning of that sentence?

    Re: even in my years to come

    I understand it to mean even when I'm older. The songwriter chose odd wording to fit the song's meter and rhyme scheme.
