about

“Forever You’re Mine” is another song that was inspired by the passing of my brother-in-law. If you want to read more about the background on that story, check out out the blog on the first song on the album called “The Long Road.”

After my brother-in-law passed away I remember my sister-in-law saying that one of the things that she missed the most about him being gone was just the downtime they spent together chatting in the evenings. It was the times when the kids had gone to bed and they would just watch a little TV and enjoy each other’s company.

I knew that I wanted to write something about this topic and the guitar riff on this one being sort of slow and soft seemed to fit the theme. In the end the song ended up placing my sister-in-law in that same situation of sitting around on an evening except that now she would be alone in doing so. I pictured her looking to the sky and waiting around for a sign that he was there, even if it meant waiting all night.

I’d say this one was probably the toughest subject that I’ve ever written about. It brought some tears to my eyes for sure and will probably do the same for anyone who’s ever lost someone that is close to them. It’s definitely a favorite of mine from this album.

lyrics

Now she’s alone
With all the lights on at home
Cause they’re silent friends
She can always replace again

She won’t wonder why
This void fills her life
There’s no one to blame
Except the cruelty of fate

It’s not too late
You won’t waste my time
I’ll be waiting here tonight
Look to the sky
Forever you’re mine, mine

She stares at the walls
Your pictures hang on them all
She won’t take them down
Or let the memories fade out

There’s a hole in that space
No one could replace
The wounded body mends
But the time in between is hell

It’s not too late
You won’t waste my time
I’ll be waiting here tonight
Look to the sky
Forever you’re mine, mine

She said “I’d give up everything
Just have you here with me”

Now she’s alone
Says “never wanted you to go”
And she says goodbye
As she turns out lights

It’s not too late
You won’t waste my time
I’ll be waiting here tonight
Look to the sky
Forever you’re mine, mine

Someday we’ll be together again
Just walking hand in hand
We’re both in the sky
Forever feels fine, fine
