"Forever And Almost Always" as written by and Kate Elizabeth Voegele....
So the story goes on down
The less traveled road
It's a variation on
The one I was told
And although it's not the same
It's awful close, yeah

In an ordinary fairy tale land
There's a promise of a perfect happy end
And I imagine having just short of that
Is better than nothing

So you'll be mine
Forever and almost always
And I'll be fine
Just love me when you can
And I'll wait patiently
I'll wake up everyday
Just hoping that you still care

In the corner of my mind I know too well
Oh, that surely even I deserve the best
But instead of leaving
I just put the issue to bed
And outta my head

Oh, and just when I believe
You've changed for good
Well, you go and prove me wrong
Just like I knew you would
When I run out of second chances
You give me that look
And you're off the hook

Because you're mine
Forever and almost always
Oh, and I'm fine
Just love me when you can
And I'll wait patiently
I'll wake up everyday
Just hoping that you'll still care

Oh, oh,
What am I still doing here
Oh, oh,
It's all becoming so clear

You'll be mine
Forever and almost always
It ain't right
To just love me when you can, Oh
I won't wait patiently
Or wake up everyday
Just hoping that you'll still care
Forever and almost always
No it ain't right
To just love me when you, baby
Ain't gonna wait patiently
I won't wake up everyday
Just hoping that you care

Oh

    General CommentI love this concept of being so in love with a person that even though it's obvious that they're not going to commit to you, you'll still stick around for when they want you to be there. It's so self-destructive, but so honest. This is what people do.

    General CommentHmmm, I don't think it's about a guy taking advantage of her at all. I think it's actually about projecting fears that make you miss things in a relationship. I think it's about how her perception of him as a boyfriend clouds what is their and how being in love with someone can throw your expectations out of perception. The amount of times she mentions love I think it's obvious love plays a part but what does love even mean? It's almost impossible to measure, and it's not a fairytale. How can it be? They allude to myths and fairytales, in the real world the idea that someone can save us is founded on fairytale expectations. and while we should all expect to get that from someone we forget that it is this we want and not the person, because if it was the person we wanted we would not be feeling neglected. again i think it is just another song about the illusions we have about love just like wish you were.

    General CommentThis song is my life right now...as sad as it is, I haven't gotten to the end of the song where I am strong enough to move on and get over the guy.
    Anyways, this song is amazing, the vocals, the lyrics...I love it all.

    General CommentThis song is very adorable but hard to listen to because its sad and slow. I still love it though and i can relate as well as i think a lot of other girls can. I like the ending how it shows she is getting over him and hopefully all us girls out there will get to that point, i know i want to =)

    General Commentit's about her process of getting over someone, or an ex boyfriend. she's waiting around for him to even care, or give her a second thought. towards the end of the song that's when she finally moves on.
    i'm sure this hits a soft spot in everybody who's listened to it.

    General CommentSo i don't know any of you, but this song can become really personal and most of you said that you've all been through or are going through 'heartache', 'loss' and just can't figure out who you are. Well i've been through all of it and i came out strong, so from my own personal experience don't ever think you can't get through cause you can. Everything can get better, always no matter what. We're all humans and humans are resilient and always bounce back. So never think that you arent strong, cause you are. Just don't give up, cause like they say on One Tree Hill 'Your art matters' and if you give up then you won't get to create that art. We all get dreams, so dream broad and pursue them, cause you all deserve it.

    all the best !

    General CommentI also agree with icesk8ngurl. This song is clearly about a girl who is in love with a boy, who is almost taking advantage of her. She claims that she will love him "Forever" while he will love her "almost always."

    This relationship seems to be stricly on his terms, and in the end she's the one thats getting the short end of the stick. She loves him so much so she won't give up on him (until she makes the realiation later on in the song).

    These lines clearly explain the meaning of the song in blunt terms:

    So you'll be my Forever and Almost Always,
    And I'll be fine, just love me when you can
    And I'll wait patiently, I'll wake up everyday
    Just hoping that, you still care

    It's such a meaningfull song and I know for a fact that many people can relate to it.
