forever lyrics – james morrison

“forever”

well my mama used to say
if you find a nice girl
it’ll all work out
and my daddy used to say
if you can’t do what you feel
son, just walk out
but they don’t know a thing about us
we’re wild and free
but freedom ain’t such a good thing
when you tell me to leave

why’d you do a thing like that?
i’m begging of you
won’t you take me back
even if everything we see is black
there’s still a chance that we can make it back

i said that it’s forever
forever’s what i mean
i look at you forever
forever’s all i see

well i can take the blows
but you punch a little low
and it hurts me there
of course i feel the love
that should be enough
but you don’t play fair
i wanna hear the sweet sweet music
of your apology
but you just say you’re sorry
that you ever set your eyes on me

why do you do a thing like that?
i’m begging of you
won’t you take me back
even if everything we see is black
there’s still a chance that we can make it back

i said that it’s forever
forever’s what i mean
i look at you forever
forever’s all i see

cross the line to dream of golden skies
i see the door you close behind your eyes
break it down
break it down
break it down

forever, forever’s what i need
when i look at you
forever, forever’s all i see
i wanted to be close
it’s what i miss the most
i ain’t ever felt so low
when you spit me right out

why’d you do a thing like that?
i’m begging of you
won’t you take me back
even if everything we see is black
there’s still a chance that we can make it back

why’d you do a thing like that?
i’m begging of you
won’t you take me back
even if everything we see is black
there’s still a chance that we can make it back

i said that it’s forever
forever’s all i see
i look at you forever
forever’s all i see
