"Forever" as written by Simon Katz and Samuel Martin....
There's a pain within
That I can't define
There's an empty space
Where your love used to shine
From the night we met
Till the day you died
Do you think I wished
Do you still believe I tried
All too soon we were divided
And life had just begun

Will you revive
From the chaos in my mind
Where we still are bound together
Will you be there
Waiting by the gates of dawn
When I close my eyes forever

I belong to you
You belong to me
It's the way things are
Always meant to be

Like the morning star
And the rising sun

You convey my life
And forgive me what I've done

All too soon we were divided
In darkness and light

Will you revive
From the chaos in my mind
Where we still are bound together
Will you be there
Waiting by the gates of dawn
When I close my eyes forever

Save me
Reverse how I'm thinking of you
Every breath I take
Brings me closer
Closer to forever, to you
I'm waiting for the day that I'm gone

    General CommentOf course it does. This is probably one of my favorite songs...ever. It's so deep without trying to be. Its awesomeness just oozes out right when it starts...Kamelot rules.

    General CommentThis song is about a girl Roy had a relationship with for years when he was younger. As a side note, the main melody in this song was borrowed from ' Solveig's Song ' by Edvard Grieg.

    General CommentThis song does not need to be interpreted. It's meaning is direct and easy to understand. It's very beautiful. The melody is amazing and I love how it just picks up and goes.

    General Commentits about a love that died....that he mourns and wishes he could be with her "from the night we met til the day you died" and how he wants her to revive from all the darkness, the pain, the mourning in his mind, and how he wants her to be there when he dies, waiting so they can be together, a love shared from life into death ^_^

    General Commenti love the way "forever" is used in this one.

    forever is often used to convey everlasting love

    "close my eyes forever" is simply death
