"Forever" as written by James Morrison, Francis Eg White and Fraser T. Smith....
Pulling this watch as faces go
Pulling in a word and done it slow this other time
I see your face is silent
Oh, we go away and play
What have you done
Takes a feeling inside us all
Continue out with just one push in my mouth
But you're so close now
And you're so close now

All I have to do is three short blows
All that still is best inside
The full when the wall
And you don't even know

All I Have to Do is Kill Her [Repeat: x3]

And the other faces here with me
The others dressed in summers thing
If only one way is to be wonderful
If only one way is to the other song
And every time it's you, it's like the blood on the stairs is sent away
And every time we see it's all said before you
If only one way is to kill you

You used to say this fear of drowning
Fear no death by water
Father walks in at the foot of the bed
Six of you want to see you safe
Just one time you'll meet this man
All you've got to do is kill her
And all you've got to do is kill her

Trickle the sands against and pull the animals
Just out of the womb
Seeing the cow dead before he was born
It's the man he, he loved
The solid pieces fell on the ground
He couldn't kill another life [Repeat: x3]

It's all been painted with love
It could have been some friends
Pulling strings to meet you
All I want to do is reach it

She says "Let go my shoulder!"
See the sky!
And the sky goes black
And the sky goes black
I just want to feel her
I just want to feel her
I just want you to feel it
I just want you to feel it

Everytime I looked up the stairs
I used to see her die
She would move so slow
Anyone could've been but she was a cat
Anyone could've been she was a cat
Pulling away as I used to fight
That's just playing so low
That ugly or pretty
The face stays the same
Her face stays the same
Her face stays the same
The ugly or pretty
Her face stays the same, stays the same, stays the same

And looking on the final walls
And looking on the final walls
Did you now find this malice out
The angels fall
Let's make some noise [Repeat: x3]
Make some noise
Let's make some noise
Let's make some noise
Make some noise

Help me be your mother for just one day
Let's fall in churches far outside
They used to love
They used to love
They used to
They used to love

    General Commenthere is another version of forever. this one was from the june 6th 1982 paris show.

    Pulling this watch as faces go
    Pulling in a word and done it slow
    This other time
    I see your face is silent
    Oh, we go away and
    What have you done
    Takes a feeling inside us all
    Continue out with just
    One push in my mouth
    But you're so close now
    And you're so close now
    All I have to do is three short blows
    All that still is best inside
    Fool when they walk
    And you don't even know
    All I have to do is kill her...
    And the other faces here with me
    The others dressed in summers thing
    If only one way is to be beautiful
    If only one way is to the other song
    And every time it's you,
    It's like the blood on the stairs
    Is sent away
    And every time we see
    It's all set before you
    If only the ways to kill you
    You used to say
    This fear of drowning
    Fear no death by water
    Father walks in at the foot of the bed
    Six of you want to see you safe
    Just one time you'll meet this man
    All you've got to do is kill her
    And all you've got to do is kill her
    Trickle the sands against
    And pull the animals
    Just out of the womb
    Seeing the cow dead before he was born
    It's the man, he loved
    The solid pieces fell on the ground
    He couldn't kill another life
    He couldn't kill another life
    He couldn't kill another life
    It's all been painted with love
    It could have been some friends
    Pulling strings to meet you
    All I want to do is reach it
    She says 'Let go my shoulder!'
    See the sky!
    And the sky goes black
    And the sky goes black
    I just want to feel her
    I just want to feel her
    I just want you to feel it
    I just want you to feel it
    Everytime I looked up the stairs
    I used to see her die
    She would move so slow
    Anyone could've been
    But she was a cat
    Anyone could've been
    She was a cat
    Pulling away as I used to fight
    That's just playing so low
    That ugly or pretty
    The face stays the same
    Her face stays the same
    Her face stays the same
    The ugly or pretty face
    Stays the same, stays the same,
    Stays the same
    And looking on the final walls
    And looking on the final walls
    Did you now find this malice out?
    The angels fall
    Let's make some more noise...
    Would you fall in
    They used to say
    Help me be your mother
    For just one day
    Let's fall in churches far outside
    They used to love
    They used to love...
