"Finally forever" as written by and Chris Cornell....
On the silent night so out of place
I almost lost my nerve
When I saw you walk into my space
A woman like you I could not replace
It took some patience to catch your eye
Patience to win your heart

Now it feels like I don't have to worry at all
It's finally forever

There's no hill I would not climb for you
No bridge I wouldn't cross
Not a moment passes in my life
That you're not on my mind
Together or apart
And it took some patience to catch your eye
Patience to win your heart

Now it feels like I don't have to worry at all
It's finally forever

Anytime you're lost
Anywhere you're found
Anytime you want
I will be around
Anywhere you seek
Anywhere you stand
Anytime you fall
Anywhere you limp
Even if you break
Anytime I can I will be there for you
I know that you'll understand
You'll understand

Now I never would have imagined this
So I thank my lucky stars
As I see you in your wedding dress
Never would have guessed you'd fill my open arms
It took some patience to catch your eye
Patience to win your heart

Now it feels like I don't have to worry at all
Yeah it feels like I don't have to worry at all
Yeah it feels like I don't have to worry at all
It's finally forever
Finally forever

    General CommentIt is a song about tranquillity in the sense that he no longer worry about his love because he feels with him finally forever. For my point of view certain paragraphs has another sense, and is that finally I leave back a sickly relationship and no longer worry about everything and finally I can be free and to heal my wounds. Good, it is my interpretation at this moment cause I fell on black days...

    General CommentIn my opinion the song is about him finding the one he truly loves. He says finally forever because he feels that this is the girl he could spend forever with. He talks about seeing this girl in her wedding dress and realizing that this is the girl he wants to spend forever with.

    General CommentYea it seems obvious, he sees a girl and is instantly in love, and does anything for her. He has found the one, and doesnt have to worry about finding his soulmate, he has found it forever.

    General CommentYeah, I saw him in concert at the Beacon in NYC, and he played this song acoustically saying "This is a song I wrote for my wife and played at our wedding." He also said one of the fans he talked to used it at his wedding as well.
