If every word I said
Could make you laugh
I'd talk forever (together my love)
I ask the sky just what we had
Mmm It shone forever (together my love my my my my my my my my my my my
my my)
If the song I sing to you
Could fill your heart with joy
I'd sing forever (together my love my my my my)
Forever
Forever
I've been so happy loving you

Do do do do do do do do do together my love

Let the love I have for you
Live in your heart
And beat forever (together my love)
Forever
Forever
I've been so happy loving you

Baby just let me sing it my baby
I want to be singin' my baby
Baby baby baby my baby
I want to be singin'
I want to be singin' my baby
Oh oh oh oh
My my my my my my

So I'm goin' away
Mmm but not forever
Na na na na
I gotta love you anyway

Forever

    General CommentUrgh! I hate that people only remember the John Stamos version now. Dennis is so underrated. Everybody has this image of him as this free spirit/surfer guy who was only in the Beach Boys out of pity. He actually had a great soulful voice and wrote some great songs. Check out the following links on youtube and myspace. His music is beautiful.

    General CommentHe is leaving his love behind, but not forever and will do anything to make him going away easier for her. Despite the distance he can see himself loving her forever...an underated beautiful love song.

    My OpinionGoodbyes are always the hardest when it is with somebody you love. There is a reason why I believe that goodbye is one of the saddest words in the English language.

    On the contrary, forever is a word that can be very optimistic; and this song is no exception. Dennis is singing about how he will never not love the girl he is singing about; that forever, he will love her smile, her laughter, her presence, her personality. Towards the end, he sings about going away; whether it be for a trip, a semester overseas, or even something as dark as death, he reminds the girl that during those times, he will continue to love her.

    Such a beautiful love song. There is a reason why Brian viewed this as one of the best things Dennis has ever written.

    General CommentA lot of Beach Boys fans hate this song, and I just don't know why. It's not like the Beach Boys weren't involved in this... they just let John Stamos sing it, big deal. He has a great voice for this song and does a great job. I wouldn't buy an album by him though.
    I think the song is great and does Dennis Wilson proud in its resurrection. The worst thing about it is the almost inexplicable "crazy guitar solo" part on the 2nd instrumental break. Wht were they thinking?? Still, I think it's a welcome addition to the better of the Beach Boys songs over the years.

    General CommentI love this song.. either version
    It has a beautiful messege. I would love for somone someday to tell me that they would love me forever (but not many guys knows the classics anymore right)
    It has great feeling and great emotion to it. anyone who can put this much feeling and heart and emotion and such a tendency to pull at your heart in a song is a hero in my book

    General CommentMan, Stamos is an untalented HACK, and a Dennis Wilson wannabe!

    This is only one of Dennis' beautiful ballads. Be sure to listen to "Only With You" off of the Holland album.

    General CommentI love the live version of this song from the Beach Boys 50th anniversary album/tour. I agree that Dennis was really under appreciated as a singer. Its a heart felt emotion, and I would love to have it played at my wedding, when and if that ever happens. The Beach Boys had some of the best harmonies in rock/pop music...rivaling even The Beatles.

    My InterpretationSuch a beautiful song, with the melody and the intentions behind the lyrics.

    I think the lyrics are about the singer (Dennis) being left by their lover. At the beginning of the song, Dennis is in disbelief. He says how he would do anything to make her happy: he would talk forever or sing forever IF either of those would do it. He has "been so happy loving" her, he doesn't understand how she could be leaving him. He thought it was meant to be, even the sky agreed with him. He tries to convince her to stay ("together my love").

    In the middle of the song, he realizes that she is leaving and is begging her to stay ("Let the love I have...", "Baby just let me sing it...", "I want to be singin' my baby"). If she would just let him love her, let him sing, he will love her forever.

    Then, in despair ("oh oh my my"), he accepts the fact that she is leaving. He will stop begging, he is "goin' away". But even if he can't be with her, he is going to love her anyway. He truly believes that it is not forever, that she will change her mind and come back to him. And his love will be there waiting for her, forever...

    General CommentDennis Wilson married his cousin and John Stamos is a crappy actor. Dennis Wilson drown and John Stamos's career went down the toilet. Think about it.
