"Forever" as written by and H. Jones....
Do you know I can never leave you
And no, I can never beat you
And I find that I can never find you
Never mind I will not forget you

Can I stay alive forever?
Can I stay alive forever?
Can I stay alive forever?
Forever?

Can you feel a chemical reaction
Cause I feel a hideous attraction
Could we share a poisoned apple?
Can it be manacle and awful?

Can I stay alive forever?
Can I stay alive forever?
Can I stay alive forever?
Forever?

Forever?
Stay alive forever?
Forever?

Stay alive forever?
Stay alive forever?
Stay alive forever?
Stay alive forever?
Stay alive forever?

    General CommentWell, this may be TOTALLY wrong, seeing as I dont have the CD book to look at the lyrics, but to me, it seems like it sounds:

    Can I stay in love forever?

    But iunno. Just me.

    My InterpretationFirst of all, Breaking Benjamin is an awesome band and I love them; they never dissapoint me. Now, talking about the song, in my opinion Forever is an Impossible Love song. Why? Jugde for yourself:

    Do you know I could never leave you?
    And I know I could never beat you
    (She already knows about his feelings for her and he's reminding her that he would never leave her,
    He knows that she will never be his enemy and will never fight with her 'cause he loves her)

    And I find, I can never find you
    Nevermind, I will not forget you
    (He realizes that she will never be for him,
    He doesn't care at all, but he'll never forget her)

    Can I stay alive forever?
    Can I stay alive forever?
    Can I stay alive forever?
    Forever
    (He is asking to himself if he can or will stay in love with her forever)

    Can I feel a chemical reaction?
    Cause I found a hideous attraction
    (He begins to feel something for her,
    He secretly is in love with her)

    Can we share a poison apple?
    Can it be maniacle and awful
    (He wants to stay with her to death,
    He wouldn't care how cruel the life can be with him, just by staying with her everything's alright for him)

    Can I stay alive forever?
    Can I stay alive forever?
    Can I stay alive forever?
    Forever
    (Same as above)

    Forever
    Stay alive forever
    Forever
    Stay alive forever

    Stay alive forever...
    (Same as above, but more desperate)

    Alright, this is my interpretation of this song, and I interpretated it this way because everytime I hear it reminds me of an impossible love I have. If you don't like my interpretation, I don't really care n_n, after all it's MY interpretation. Have a nice day!

    General CommentI think a lot of people have it wrong, I dont think its to do with dying. I think it's about a relationship, where the girl makes him feel so alive, he wants to feel like that forever. Idk :)

    General CommentIt's a beautiful song. It's, in my opinion, about being in love.

    General Commentthis is about a boy that is in love with his female fren.. he knows he cant get her probably coz she's in love with another .. he knows he cares too much for this fren.. he can never get past her . he's unhurt yet coz he still feels alive.. he wont mind how she feels , coz he cannot forget her
    (Do you know I could never leave you?
    And I know i could never beat you
    And I find, i can never find you
    Nevermind, I will not forget you)
    he asks . if it's ok for them to be together as couple. he asks if she feels the same way he feels.. but he knows it's too big a thing to ask from her .. (could it be maniacle and awful)
    he wont mind how she feels , coz he cannot forget her.. he's not hurt yet coz hope still lingers on so he's asking her if this hope can last forever.. can he feel alive forever!! you cannot actually understand the lyrics untill you experience it..I'm so much in love with this song now

    General CommentThis song is really amazing, they did a really good job witht his cd.

    I believe he is singing about someone dying in a relationship and the love is so strong that he wants to die too. When he asks if he wants to stay alive forever he basicaly is asking if can he die too.

    General CommentI've cried listening to this song. I must have listened to it at least 50 times. Beautiful! Ben's voice tears me up.

    General Commentthis song is so amazingly beautiful, wow. i'm not too sure what it's about... losing someone (one way or the other) almost as soon as you have found them... wishing to stay alive forever so you can find them again... i dunno. this song makes me sad though

    General CommentI love the part that goes

    Can I feel a chemical reaction?
    Cause I found a hideous attraction
    Can we share a poison apple?
    Can it be that we've occured for nothing

    Ben is an AMAZING singer.

    can it be maniacle and awful?
