"Eternity" as written by Adam R. Young and Paul Van Dyk....
Eternity

Close your eyes so you don't feel them
They don't need to see you cry
I can't promise I will heal you
But if you want to I will try
To sing this summer serenade
The past is done we've been betrayed It's true
Some might say the truth will out
But I believe without a doubt in you

You were there for summer dreaming
And you gave me what I need
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity

For eternity

Yesterday when we were walking
You talked about your ma and dad
What they did that made you happy
What they did that made you sad
We sat and watched the sun go down
Then picked a star before we lost the moon
Youth is wasted on the young
Before you know it's come and gone too soon

You were there for summer dreaming
And you gave me what I need
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity

For eternity

You were there for summer dreaming
And you are a friend indeed
And I hope you find your freedom

Eventually

You were there for summer dreaming
And you gave me what I need
And I know you'll find your freedom
Eventually

For eternity

    General CommentI love this song. It makes me think about someone very special to me - all I want to do is make life good for him. I really love the line "I can't promise I will heal you / but if you want to I will try"
    this song is just beautiful.

    General CommentI think this song talks about a guy who was seeing this girl, whose youth was full of abuse. The man talks about how fast life passes amd emphsaizes it with the sun and the moon. He reminds the girl that she is a atrong person and that she has to let go of the past and move on...
    That's how is see that...

    General CommentThis song is actually about Geri Halliwell formerly of Spice Girls. They spent a summer together in 2002 in the south of france (there were lots of pics in the papers at the time).

    General Commentthis song is so beautiful. it still makes me cry. it just really touches me and i know who the girl he is singing about feels and what hes saying to this girl is what my best friend said to me, she was there for me through everything i've been through and never lost her faith that i would get out of the things i was feeling. maybe thats why i love the song so much, to me its a song for her n i love her so much that i can never put into words how muchs shes helped me and i think that this song is just...her.

    General CommentI agree with Caz1981, this song was rumoured to be written about that summer they share and how close they had become, even when they later grew apart, which is sad because Robbie doesn't seem to keep his beloved one for long.
    When he talks about Eternity, off course he doesn't mention Geri -who also holds a heavy past-, but he does mention spending one of his happiest holidays with new friends...and that songs describes it...describes friendship in such a touching way, the way I used to felt for my former special friend, back then in 2001 :'(

    General CommentI think it's about that teenage romance "First Love" holiday thing you'll never see the person again... I know what I mean.

    Reminds me of the good times with my first boyfriend ^_^

    General CommentIt could also be about a friend who died when they were young. Eternity fits that I guess.

    General CommentIt's not about romance...it's a friend that he's talkin bout, a friend with whom he can not stay
