Roy Harper – Forever – the most beautiful love song ever written.

Roy Harper – Forever – the most beautiful love song ever written.

I prefer the first version of this on the first album, simply recorded live in a make-shift studio. It captures the heart and essence.

It is the most incredible evocation of the love that burns and you think will be there for eternity as the endorphins soar.

You can picture two young people together, in love and dreaming of being in that moment for the rest of time and a day.

Sadly that was not to be. Moments pass. But the beauty of that moment was captured in this gem. We can hold it and watch it sparkle. It radiates the emotions that were captured and locked inside the words.

Forever

We’re just spinning leaves
In the flight of a dawn
, little girl
Falling through an eternal horizon of time
But as we lie here I’d like to think
That all we’ve got will be ours forever
Don’t you think we’re forever
Don’t you think we’re forever

I can hear a voice

On the wings of a dream, little girl

Melting me into love as it touches my heart
But sheltered in the distance of your sleep
Is all that I could love in a lifetime
Don’t you think we’re forever
Don’t you think we’re forever

Open your eyes
To the call of the winds, little girl
Can’t you here them all saying I’ll always be yours
Lying in the misty morning sun
The pillow of the night still beneath you
Don’t you think we’re forever
Don’t you think we’re forever

I'd like to hear from you...
