If it takes forever I will wait for you
For a thousand summers I will wait for you
Till you're back beside me, till I'm holding you
Till I hear you sigh here in my arms

Anywhere you wander, anywhere you go
Every day remember how I love you so
In your heart believe what in my heart I know
That forevermore I'll wait for you

The clock will tick away the hours one by one
Then the time will come when all the waiting's done
The time when you return and find me here and run
Straight to my waiting arms

If it takes forever I will wait for you
For a thousand summers I will wait for you
Till you're here beside me, till I'm touching you
And forevermore sharing your love

    General CommentThis song was INTENSE in that episode of Futurama. Totally unexpected and extremely sad scene from that show.

    General CommentTHAT'S where I know this song from! Thanks, Ratman. I've had some lines from this song written on a piece of paper for months now and only just now did I bother to look them up. Now I know. Yeah, that episode was the saddest thing ever. After seeing that, I really fell in love with the show. Good song, too. Nice and soothing.

    General CommentNot to mention it is a good song in itself, it was just so well placed in that episode, i know it bvrings many people to tears, it's just a shame the song itself is so hard to find.

    General CommentThis is probably the saddest but also sweetest songs I've probably ever heard. Such a deep devotion is hard to come by and it really makes you hope your loved ones would do the same. (and even do it yourself) It really hits home.

    General CommentOh my god same thing happened to me !!! I first heard it in Futurama and I was also ***very*** touched (underline almost cry)
    Amazing song, heard it five years ago or so but came here to post because one friend asked me for a *painful* love song and this one instantly popped .

    General CommentI think you'd have to have a heart of stone not to cry at the end of that episode of Futurama :( I was surprised at the tears that were falling down my face

    Such a beautiful song
    Just thinking about that bloody dog it making me teary though :'[

    General CommentI just watched a film called 'The Umbrellas of Cherbourg', it's a french musical, and this song served as the theme music throughout... I couldn't place it when watching the movie... it was killing me -I knew I heard the melody before and then all of a sudden it hit me. Pleasantly surprised... it was a lovely film, and I highly recommend it.
