"Forever" as written by Mariah Carey and Walter N. Afanasieff....
Those days of love are gone
Our time is through
Still I burn on and on
All of my life
Only for you

From now
Until forever
And ever my darling
Forever

You will always be the only one
You will always be the only one

As long as I shall live
I'll hold you dear
And I will reminisce
Of our love all through the years

From now
Until forever
And ever my darling
Forever

You will always be the only one
You will always be the only one

If you should ever need me
Unfailingly, I will return to your arms
And unburden your heart
And if you should remember
That we belong together
Never be ashamed
Call my name
Tell me I'm the one you treasure

Forever
And ever, my darling
Forever
You will always be the only one
You will always be the only one
You will always be the only one
Forever
You will always be the only one
Forever
You will always be the only one
Forever
You will always be the only one
Forever
You will always be the only one
Forever
You will always be the only one

    General CommentMaybe this song is just too overly characteristic of the genre to be very popular. It is still the best Mariah Carey song I ever heard. Her voice is perfect for it and whoever was in charge got the music down perfectly. She should be very proud of this one.

    Sure beats the heck out of anything Celine Dion ever did.

    General CommentStill to this day my fav Mariah Craey song.

    It just says that even though we are no longer together i will never change the way i feel about you or forget the love we once shared; if you ever change your mind, i will be right here waiting.

    General CommentThis song came out the year I was born which is 1996 it talks about how even though you break up with someone your feelings will never change and if by some chance they come back you'll be waiting

    General CommentTo me this song is about a naive young girl who lost her innocents to a crush in hopes that they would be together forever. But we all know thats a young naive girls fantasy. By the lyrics of this song we can see this guy has moved on. but the young girl is still stuck on him shes in a fantasy that only exist in her head that her in this guy will one day be together in reality. But until then shes stuck in this fantasy that theres a forever for them. But the audience can see through all this. Its clearly a sad song directed to naive girls. Love the essence of this song. ♥♡♥♡♥
