"Forever" as written by Simon Katz and Samuel Martin....
look at me now, how i follow through
how can i go on?
this happened once before
and so i went it on my own
and though my anger will cry out
and my life is not for nothing
though the angels scream and shout for you
they'll follow with me home (?)

and we can live on forever
spend our whole lives togehter
and i don't know how to do it yet
i don't know how it's done

we can live on forever
spend our whole lives together
and i don't know how to do it yet
i don't know how it's done

i have to accept what i can't deny
so much insanity
these apologies you keep offering
no longer hold their weight with me
but when the sentiment wears out
i'll know my life again means something
and all this time i force myself it's true
i'm stepping further than you know (?)

and we can live on forever
spend our whole lives together
and i don't know how to do it yet
i don't know how it's done

we can live on forever
spend our whole lives together
and i don't know how to do it yet
i don't know how it's done

and we can live on forever
spend our whole lives together
and i don't know how to do it yet
i don't know how it's done

and we can live on forever
spend our whole lives together
and i don't know how to do it yet
i don't know how it's done

    General CommentI think these may be a little more accurate. Let me know

    Look at me now how I follow through
    how can I go on?
    this happened once before
    and so I went it on my own
    and though my anger will cry out
    and my life is left for nothing
    though the angels scream and shout for you
    they're following me home

    [Chorus]
    and we can live on forever
    spend our whole lives together
    and I don’t know how to do it yet
    I don't know how its done X2

    I have to accept what I can't deny
    so much uncertainty
    these apologies you keep offering
    no longer hold their weight with me
    but when the sentiment wears out
    I’ll know my life again means something
    and all this time I force myself it true
    I’m stepping further then you know

    [Chorus]

    General CommentFairly sure it's:
    "...how I followed through"
    When I first heard the second verse I assumed it was:
    "And all this time I've fooled myself it's true"
    Which to my mind makes more sense, but on re-listening I can see where people are coming from with "force." In this case, there's probably supposed to be a semi-colon somewhere in there.
    "And all this time I force (or "I've forced") myself; It's true/I'm slipping further than you know."
    Which would also make sense. I don't know where people are getting "stepping" from, as "slipping" both makes more sense and sounds more accurate.

    Anyway, any thoughts on the meaning? Since the verse is clearly about the singer telling the subject of the song how much they've hurt him, can we assume the chorus is another character? Or is it intended to reflect that the singer still wants to stay with the subject? I think the most intriguing lines in this song are "though the angels scream and shout for you/they're following me home," which could almost be construed to case this piece into religious terms, unless the "angels" are being used here to mean "good guys," as in "on the side of the angels" (in which case it's just stating that whilst the subject of the song makes a good pretence of having got the worst of their relationship, the singer is the one who has really been wronged).
