"Forever" as written by and Claude/thiam Kelly....
"Never take your loved ones for granted: they could be gone tomorrow"
All of my dreams seem to fall by the side like a discarded thought or the day's fading light
But I know that if I could just see you tonight forever at times we may fall,
Like we all tend to do but I'll reach out and find that I've run into you
Your strength is the power that carried me through forever

Your kindness for weakness I never mistook I worried you often,
Yet you understood that life is so fleeting,
These troubles won't last forever inspired me truly you did from the start to not be afraid
And to follow my heart there's a piece of you with me they can't tear apart forever

Forever I'll find you, forever we'll be
Forever your power and strength stays with me

    General CommentI think it is pretty obvious that this is a love song, not a very common thing when it comes to band like Dropkick Murphys, but they did a good job anyway.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a great friendship and about two people that can never, in no way, be parted. I think it's really beautiful and it means a lot to me.

    General CommentThis song makes me feel sappy as hell.

    However, it's the only Dropkick Murphys song that doesn't make me feel like I need to have a Guinness in my hand.
