"Forever" as written by and Jacoby Shaddix David Buckner....
In the brightest hour of my darkest day
I realized what is wrong with me
Can't get over you
Can't get through to you
It's been a helter skelter romance from the start

Take these memories that are haunting me
Of a paper man cut into shreds by his own pair of scissors
He'll never forgive her
He'll never forgive her

Because days come and go, but my feelings for you are forever
Because days come and go, but my feelings for you are forever

Sitting by a fire on a lonely night
Hanging over from another good time
With another girl, little dirty girl
You should listen to this story of a life

You're my heroine in this moment I'm lonely
Fulfilling my darkest dreams
All these drugs, all these women
I'm never forgiven, this broken heart of mine

Because days come and go, but my feelings for you are forever
Because days come and go, but my feelings for you are forever

One last kiss, before I go
Dry your tears, it is time to let you go
One last kiss
One last kiss, before I go
Dry your tears, it is time to let you go

Because days come and go, but my feelings for you are forever
Because days come and go, but my feelings for you are forever

One last kiss, before I go
Dry your tears, it is time to let you go
One last kiss, before I go
Dry your tears, it is time to let you go
One last kiss

    Song MeaningPersonaly after watching the music video
    I believe that this song is about a man who lost his love
    and is trying so hard to move on.
    He still sees her and feels her with him. "days come and go but my feelings for you
    are forever" means that he wont ever let her go.
    "All these drugs all these women" means that he's trying to move on with different girls
    and the drugs must mean that he's trying to find a way to get rid of his
    sadness. But what happened to his girlfriend happens again in his mind (flashbacks)
    and he realizes shes gone, and she's not coming back. "One last kiss..before I go
    dry your tears .. it is time to let you go" Meaning one last kiss, I'm going to forget you
    dry your tears probualy means his tears , It's time to say goodbye
    I hope this made sence :)

    My InterpretationThis song is about wanting for things to be right in a relationship although its obvious to the main character it can never be. He even fails to feel anything when he medicates himself with drugs or other women. Its obvious he doesn't want to be in a relationship with her because of some way she has wronged him, so he is letting her know that, I dont want this, but my hands are tied, what was done is unforgivable, tho I still love you, I will heal more by losing you than by keeping you after what youve done to me.

    General CommentFound out a month ago my wife was cheating on me with an old high school boyfriend. He dumped her the both times in school they had dated, so I think there was some unresolved feelings in her that made her do this.

    Anyways, she listened to this song alot (before I knew what was going on), but says there was no meaning (I think there was for him, which made it mean something to her).

    She also listened Hinder's 'Lips of an Angel', again saying there was no meaning to her. For some reason, I dont believe her.

    I hate this song and Lips of an Angel because of that.

    General Commentwell it could be a double meaning...Shes the heroine that saves him, but the heroin that hes addicted to. A double meaning perhaps?

    General CommentEveryone has their own take on songs, thats music. but to me this is about, like alot of people said, a guy trying to get over a girl. but the difference is that to me, it was one of those romances where the guy couldn't help himself, he was just so deeply in love with the girl. Part of him knew she wasn't good for him, but the heart feels what it wants, and he went after he. he took a lot of crap from her, but still loved her. finally something sent him over the edge and he couldn't forgive her. and even though he loves her the same, she hurt him too much. and he couldn't be with her after that, so he just wants one more kiss, and then he's gone.
    he's tried to forget her through broken relationships, random hookups and a hazy life, but he just cant forget her. and this song is his realization of what is wrong, he just couldn't let her go. maybe he will always love her, but I think that his realization of whats wrong is going to help him fix himself, "it is time to let you go". thats what i'd hope at least. otherwise this is a damn depressing song. just my thoughts
