"Everlasting Love" as written by Kevin Murphy, Dennis E. Belfield and David James Wolinski....
Hearts go astray, keeping hurt when they go
I went away just when you needed me so
You won't regret I'll come back beggin' you
Don't you forget
Welcome love we once knew, yeah

Open up your eyes
Then you'll realize
Here I stand with my
Everlasting love

Need you by my side
Come and be my pride
You'll never be denied
Everlasting love

From the very start
Open up your heart
Feel the love you've got
Everlasting love

This love will last forever
This love will last forever

Hearts gone astray
Keeping up when they go
I went away
Just when you needed me so
You won't regret it
I'll come back begging you
Don't you forget
Welcome love we once knew, yeah

When life really flows
No one really knows
The sun will have to show them
Everlasting love

Like the sun it shines
Endlessly it shines
You always will be mine
Eternal love

Whenever love went wrong
Ours would still be strong
We'd have our own
Everlasting love

This love will last forever
This love will last forever

Open up your eyes
Then you'll realize
Here I stand with my
Everlasting love

Need you by my side
Come and be my pride
Never be denied
Everlasting love

From the very start
Open up your heart
Feel the love you've got

Everlasting love
Everlasting love
Everlasting love
Everlasting love
Everlasting love

    General CommentI think its about a guy who wasn't there for the girl he loved when she really needed him and he's realised the error of his ways and is begging her to accept his love for her again and forgive him.

    General CommentDid you know this song was used for the trailer for the movie Wimbledon with Paul Bettany and Kirsten Dunst?
    Really good cover in my opinion, the guitar is very good, makes it sound rather happy!

    General CommentThe original is by Love Affair, a British pop band of the '60s. I like both versions of it.

    General Commentthis song has been covered three million other times, but done by U2 i find it OK.
    all the other versions, including the original, are annoying to me (sorry :D)
    i still do not like the song, but somehow it seems a bit better done by U2.

    General CommentI think U2 has done the best cover of this song. The guitar in it just makes me smile!

    General CommentI absolutely love this song! I think this is one of U2's best even though it's a cover, and the guitars sound great.

    General Commentthe song is easy to play on the guitar. you tune the guitar down half a step, and the chords and rhythms not that hard. i'll say that the Edge and Bono are a very good team in themselves. at the core you hear the dreamy, melancholic and almost distorted sounds of u2 and it meshes well with bono's lyrics, they always seem to be bittersweet lyrics. hmm.

    General CommentMy dad once made fun of me because for a time I was thoght that U2 wrote this song but I looked it up and found that some one else had wrote it, so to poke fun at me my dad said, "That was a good cover that and their cover of 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.'" After he said that I waited a minute and said, "Hay! They wrote that song, I think..." My dad nearly laughed out of his set.
