"Forever Yours" as written by Carole Bayer Sager, James E. Ingram and Bruce Roberts....
Fare thee well, little broken heart
Downcast eyes, lifetime loneliness

Whatever walks in my heart will walk alone

Constant longing for the perfect soul
Unwashed scenery forever gone

Whatever walks in my heart will walk alone

No love left in me
No eyes to see the heaven beside me
My time is yet to come
So I'll be forever yours

Whatever walks in my heart will walk alone

No love left in me
No eyes to see the heaven beside me
My time is yet to come
So I'll be forever yours

No love left in me
No eyes to see the heaven beside me
My time is yet to come
So I'll be forever yours

Whatever walks in my heart will walk alone

    General CommentI think its about losing a loved one and losing all contact with your emotions. But no matter what he/she will forever have the bond even after death.
    thats my thoughts!!!
    Anyone else have an idea?

    General CommentI think this is about not knowing what you have until it's gone. The person had the perfect spouse, but didn't realize that, and now that he/she is gone all the person can think about is what he/she threw away.

    General CommentI'm with Demonic. The spirit of the loved one will be with her always bust she can't see him, "My time is yet to come" definately adds to the death part.

    Either that, or it's about someone that feels as though they will never love, leaving their heart broken. Singing to herself which means that "So I'll be forever yours" Means that she'll have herself all to herself

    General CommentI think it's about someone has found someone she really loves, but who's personality won't let her actually be affectionate with them... and thus never has a chance at being with them. She knows love, but she doesn't know how to deal with it. Since she can't bring herself to go through that situation with someone else, she'll hang forever on that one person.

    There are many things it could be, that's just one take I have on it.

    General CommentI love this song so much, Nightwish are one of my favourite bands eva, and their amazing! this is just a beautiful love song and Tarja's voice is just gourgous on it, so much emotion, I can't really explain what its about, just emotion and that even though you're apart from someone, you'll always love them forever, they will stay in you're heart and no1 else cud compare to them ever! awwwwww

    General CommentThere are a lot of ways to take this song. It could be about someone who realized the love they had once they let it go, or it could be about someone who is in love but cannot seem to express it. What I find most interesting is that Tarja says she hates the way she sounds in this song. I think she sounds amazing.

    General CommentWhat is that beautifully played instrument in this song? It sounds hollow, like a flute... but could it be a panflute? Is that even what it's called? :p.

    General CommentAquilaCat: I think it's a tinwhistle/pennywhistle. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… Probably why so many people equate the song with Titanic.

    Note: I think Tarja hates the way she sounds here because she had the flu during the recording, you can tell a bit in her breathing, and doesn't feel that she was really at her best.
