Forever Man

Song Notes

TK/Michael Lille

–Michael and I have written a lot of songs I love and this is one of my favorites. Years ago I was inspired by a Paul Overstreet song about love that lasts beyond the grave, and I think that was part of the inspiration for this one, which explores a kind of absolute commitment. Impossible perhaps, but we know the feeling of wanting it to be true.

Say you’re crazy ’bout my story
But you want to see my master plan
Well there ain’t a lot to say about it
But I will do the best I can

You see I love you like the ocean
And the starlight love the silver sand
And if you let me shine forever
I’ll be your forever man

Baby time and time and time again
I’m hearing love will never last
Well I just want to say
Mine is here to stay
If you give it half a chance

Well a secret is lost with a whisper
And an hour to a second hand
A dream will slip away with the sunrise
But I’ll be your forever man

Baby time and time and time again
I’m hearing love will never last
Well I just want to say
Mine is here to stay
If you give it half a chance

You know a lifetime burns down like a candle
We’re all sailors losing sight of land
But even when I cross that ocean
I’ll be your forever man

So when I lay this on the table
Don’t be looking for some slight of hand
Cause every single move I’m making
I’m making so you understand
I’ll be your forever man
