♫ Forever ♫ (Redux)

Being in somewhat of a funk, or a rabbit hole tonight, I just wanted someone to sing to me, and Kenny Loggins volunteered!

I really wanted to play a different version of this one … a live recording where Kenny looks right at you with those gorgeous, soulful eyes and you just melt.  Well, okay, perhaps some of you wouldn’t just melt, but some of us would.  But, the sound quality on that one was poor, so you’ll have to settle for nature scenes while you listen to Forever.

Not much to say about this song, other than it was co-written by David Foster and Loggins’ first wife Eva Ein.  And he closes all his concerts with this song because he says he knows that his audience will be back “even when I’m gone”.

One thing I did not realize is that Kenny Loggins was born in January 1948, making him three years older than moi!  He sure is better preserved than I am!

Kenny Loggins

Now, while we’re here alone
And all is said and done
Now I can let you know
Because of all you’ve shown
I’ve grown enough to tell you
You’ll always be inside of me

How many roads have gone by
So many words left unspoken
I needed to be by your side
If only to hold you

Forever in my heart
Forever we will be
And even when I’m gone
You’ll be here in me

Once, I dreamed that you were gone
I cried out trying to find you
I begged the dream to fade away
And please awaken me
But night took a hold of my heart
And left me with no one to follow
the love that I lost to the dark
I’ll always remember

Forever in my heart
Forever we will be
And know that when I’m gone
You’ll be here in me
Forever in my heart
You always thought I’d be
I’d be yours

  1. Another song which missed my radar (should have upgraded long ago). I took a listen and thought, ‘let me guess’…checked out. Yep! mid-1980s classic blend of orchestral rock with strong lost love lyrics. We did like those songs; Toto, Journey, Bonnie Tyler. Something about the power behind them, the singer sometimes straining to be heard amongst the chords adding a kind of yearning to them.
    Long way from ‘House on Pooh Corner’, but the guy has style and class.
    Thanks Jill

  2. He only had two hits here, with his film themes. If this is what the rest of his songs were like I can’t say I’m surprised. Not my kind of thing at all, sorry.
