"Forever Not Yours" as written by and Morten/furuholmen Harket....
Hold me tight
This is a lonely night
And I've hurt you baby
Because you are my light

Make me strong
Just like you make me weak
When your hands reach out for me
Even in your sleep

I'll soon be gone now
Forever not yours
It won't be long now
Forever not yours

Memories they keep coming through
The good ones hurt more
Than the bad ones do
The days were high

And the nights were deep
And I miss you, baby
I miss you, baby

I'll soon be gone now
Forever not yours
It won't be long now
Forever not yours

I'll soon be gone now
It won't be long now
Forever not
Forever not yours

I'll soon be gone now
Forever not yours
It won't be long now
Forever not yours

I'll soon be gone now
Forever not yours
It won't be long now
Forever not yours

    General CommentStill a beautiful song I listen often after all these years. I think it is from the perspective of someone who is breaking up the relation. People seem to forget that most of the time this is a very hard thing to do: you still love the person you're breaking up with and don't want to hurt them, but you know you cannot keep this relation going either.
    I really can relate to the second verse, sometimes the good memories do hurt more than the bad, they make you doubtful of your decisions. Shouldn't you try to make it right since you had so many good times? Sometimes it is easier to break up with a fight, because you have a clear reason then...

    General CommentTo me, this song means a person is in love with another, but he hurts her too much, so he decides to let go. While bearing feelings for her.

    General Commenti love the 2nd verse too and I preatty agree with GaiusBertos. the thinking about 'apoliptic story' can be in connection with the video ... someone saw it? it is very beautiful, Morten is a new Noe and he's preparing his ARca ...... I don't know what's the meaning of all this!

    General CommentI dont know if he's the Noah of the video clip... I think he's just like one of the important people necessary for the "new world". Other than that the video clip confuses me aswell. But I still love the clip and the song, even if I dont get it 100%
