I said I would love you forever
And you wondered whether
Forever was one of those periods that ever-
Y now and then changed I said 'never'
Wherever you are I'll be close by loving you forever
But you insisted 'how long is forever?
And when you say never do you really mean never
Or are you a little like the weather
That is there forever
But changes altogether?'
Well, now I think we must be clear
Forever lasted for a little over a year.
