"Forever and Always" as written by and William Charles Anderson....
She's sitting at the table
The hour's getting later
He was supposed to be here
She's sure he would've called
She waits a little longer
There's no one in the driveway
No ones' said they've seen him
Why, is something wrong?

She looks back to the window
Suddenly the phone rings
A voice says, something's happened
That she should come right now
Her mind goes to December
She thinks of when he asked her
He bent down on his knee first
And he said

I want you forever
Forever and always
Through the good and the bad and the ugly
We'll grow old together
Forever and always

She pulls up to the entrance
She walks right to the front desk
They lead her though a million halls
A maze that's never ending
They talk about what happened
But she can barely hear them
She tries to keep a straight face
As she walks into the room

She sits by his bedside
Holds his hand too tight
They talk about the kids they're gonna have
And the good life
The house on the hillside
Where they would
Stay, stay there forever

Forever and always
Through the good and the bad and the ugly
We'll grow old together
And always remember
Whether rich or for poor or for better
We'll still love each other
Forever and always

Then she gets an idea
And calls in the nurses
Brings up the chaplain
And he says a couple verses
She borrows some rings
From the couple next door
Everybody's laughing
As the tears fall on the floor
She looks into his eyes and she says

I want you forever
Forever and always
Through the good and the bad and the ugly
We'll grow old together
And always remember
Whether happy or sad or whatever
We'll still love each other
Forever and always
Forever and always
Forever and always

She finishes the vows but
The beeps are getting too slow
His voice is almost too low
As he says

I'll love you forever
Forever and always
Please just remember
Even if I'm not there
I'll always love you
Forever and always

    General CommentI just got this album a few days ago and listening to the songs, I wasn't really picking up what was going on, but reading the lyrics alone was enough to have me tearing up.

    Anyway, just gonna state the obvious for the purposes of this site: I am pretty sure that this song is about a couple who recently got married and had so many plans for happiness, but the man is injured or ill or something. So, they're in the hospital and they're hoping with all the hope they have that everything is going to be OK. Well, the man says that even if things don't go OK, to always remember him and that he will love the girl forever and always (hence the title of the song).

    This is so touching and sad. I was at a Parachute concert two days ago and they played this and... it was so different from the rest of the songs they performed which had a little more excitement. I love them, though... I am very close to Kit's family and apparently Johnny's as well, as I just recently learned that his sister babysat me many years ago and apparently Johnny "[hadn't] seen me since [I] was this big!" (insert hand indications that I was an infant).
