"Forever" as written by Ludwig Emil Tomas Goransson, Alana Mychal Haim, Danielle Sari Haim and Este Arielle Haim....
Hey you!
Remember me? Remember love?
Remember trying to stay together?
My time, you took it all
You tried to see
You tried to bring yourself up without involving me
It isn't fair, to have your way
To try and get up and go and na na na na now can't you see
It isn't fair to have your way
But I'm trying to get your attention and I need you to know that

Hey you! Hey you!
Can't you make this thing?
I know, I know, I know you ain't the one to play the game
Now I know I'm never gonna go your way
Here we go, now I know, I know know know

Forever I try to make it right
Together we suck, end in sight
I'm tired of fighting the good fight
If you say the word then I'll say goodbye

Forever I see you and me
Forever I'll try for you and I
No I never believed in the reason
Just another good reason to get a ride

I don't want to turn around
So come on baby
Come on and try to let it out
Let it go
We're still the same
So come on baby
Kick to the sounds, let's figure it out
Let's get back to where we started out

Hey you! Hey you!
Can't you make this thing?
I know, I know, I know you ain't the one to play the game
Now I know I'm never gonna go your way
Here we go, now I know, I know know know

Forever I try to make it right
Together we suck, end in sight
I'm tired of fighting the good fight
If you say the word then I'll say goodbye

Forever I see you and me
Forever I'll try for you and I
No I never believed in the reason
Just another good reason to get a ride

Go go go go get out, get out of my memory
No no no not tonight, I don't have the energy

Go go go go get out, get out of my memory
No no no not tonight, oh not tonight, oh not tonight

Forever we try to make it right
Together we suck, end in sight
I'm tired of fighting the good fight
If you say the word then I'll say goodbye

Forever I see you and me
Forever I'll try for you and I
No I never believed in the reason
Just another good reason to get a ride

Forever I try to make it right
Together we suck, end in sight
I'm tired of fighting the good fight
If you say the word then I'll say goodbye

Forever I see you and me
Forever I'll try for you and I
No I never believed in the reason
Just another good reason to get a ride

    General CommentWTF, these lyrics are so wrong. "Together we suck", um, what?!

    My gosh, why bother if you don't even know what they're saying? The correct lyrics are:

    Hey you
    Remember me? Remember love?
    Remember trying to stay together?
    My time, you took it all
    You tried to see
    You tried to bring yourself up without involving me
    It isn't fair, to have your way
    To try and get up and go and na na na na now can't you see
    It isn't fair to have your way
    But I'm trying to get your attention and I need you to know that

    Hey you! Hey you!
    Can't you make this sane?
    I know, I know, I know you ain't the one to play the game
    Now I know I'm never gonna go your way
    If you go, now I know, I know know know

    Forever we tried to make it right
    Together we saw the end in sight
    I'm tired of fighting the good fight
    If you say the word then I'll say goodbye

    Forever I see you and me
    Forever I'll try for you and I
    No I never believed in their insight
    Just another good reason to get it right

    I don't want to turn around
    So come on baby
    Come on and try to let it out
    Let go
    We're still the same
    So come on baby
    Trigger the sound, lets figure it out
    Let's get back to where we started out

    Hey you! Hey you!
    Can't you make this sane?
    I know, I know, I know you ain't the one to play the game
    Now I know I'm never gonna go your way
    If you go, now I know, I know know know

    Forever we tried to make it right
    Together we saw the end in sight
    I'm tired of fighting the good fight
    If you say the word then I'll say goodbye

    Forever I see you and me
    Forever I'll try for you and I
    No I never believed in their insight
    Just another good reason to get it right

    Go go go go get out, get out of my memory
    No no no not tonight, I don't have the energy

    Go go go go get out, get out of my memory
    No no no not tonight, oh not tonight, oh not tonight

    Forever we tried to make it right
    Together we saw the end in sight
    I'm tired of fighting the good fight
    If you say the word then I'll say goodbye

    Forever I see you and me
    Forever I'll try for you and I
    No I never believed in their insight
    Just another good reason to get it right

    This is really important to me that it's right because it my favorite song from them. It's about a couple whose spent more time trying to fix their relationship that actually having one. They tried to get it right and even when people told them they weren't right for each other, they wanted to prove them wrong and stay together (we never believed in their insight, just another good reason to get it right). Now she sees that he's giving up and she wants to, too, because she's tired of fighting for them, but it's been so long and they've tried so hard, she can't seem to do it.

    My InterpretationThis song makes me think of a relationship, so much has happened and he's given up on her, eventhough he told her 'forever' and shes saying she will always try for them and she won't give up no matter what she knows they will be together. she tries to fight feeling sad but sometimes she doesnt have the energy to keep her feelings under control. The beggining of the song makes it seem like he's already moved on and forgotten her but she doesn't want to give up. That's just my opinion, basically she's asking for another chance to make it right.

    General CommentI feel like this song is about a relationship that has been going for a long time and the couple have drifted apart but it's been officially broken off and this is like her reaction to it. Like she realises "forever [they] tried to make it right" and it's not working but it hurts that it's over because the other person was such a large part of their life. At least that's my opinion

    General CommentI love this song :) The vocals sound vaguely Tracy Chapman-ish at points.
