We sing together out of key
Although we try it seems we just can't find our harmony
We just don't fit each other's frequencies
That makes you out of reach
And I am finally accepting that

About you and me, it's plain to see
We only ever want to stay inside and watch TV
Because that's just as good a memory
You're just good company
And I am finally accepting that

Remember the time when we stole the whole day?
And nobody knows it; we took it away
And it will be forever mine
And it will be forever yours
Now we own the night and it can't be undone
We'll never forget how it feels to be young
'Cause it will be forever mine
And it will be forever yours

Come on darling, have some indecency
You know there's nothing you could say that would embarrass me
I heard a song tell me that talk is cheap
But it's all you do with me
And I am finally accepting that

It's just our routine, we try and dream
And buy the things we said we'd buy when we got more money
All in the name of making memories
That's what you want with me
And I am finally accepting that

Remember the time when we stole the whole day?
And nobody knows it; we took it away
And it will be forever mine
And it will be forever yours
Now we own the night and it can't be undone
We'll never forget how it feels to be young
'Cause it will be forever mine
And it will be forever yours

Remember the time when we stole the whole day?
And nobody knows it; we took it away
And it will be forever mine
And it will be forever yours
Now we own the night and it can't be undone
We'll never forget how it feels to be young
'Cause it will be forever mine
And it will be forever yours

This will be forever mine
This will be forever yours
Now we own the night and it can't be undone

    Have a strong feeling this is about kristina (italktosnakes on youtube), he mentioned in an interview that the song was based on a girl he used to like but things weren't working out and that they realised they could still have a nice day as friends. Funnily enough around the time he wrote the song a video appeared of kristina and alex singing modern nature together although the description box said they were not dating.

    Couple figure out that they don't want be together anymore, but that doesn't mean they are going to forget the times they spennt together, decide not to end it badly and become friends!

    I think that it is about two people who had a great time together finally grow up, but realize they can still relive the past through their memories.

    I love alex day, he is a brilliant song writer and performer. For me, forever yours is about alex having this one girl he really cares for. Maybe they dated in the past or they've only ever had a plutonic relationship, but alex loves her or at least cares for her a lot. I think the girl definitely cares for him as well, but more as close friend. This is about alex coming to terms with how she truly feels about them, and accepting that they may never be anything more, or at least not right now. Alex is looking back on the great times they have had, and deciding he doesn't want to lose that connection. He'd rather be friends than nothing at all. He's saying they will have these memories forever, just him and her.

    I find it difficult to just sum up his songs because i feel like there are so many possible layers. It's one thing i really enjoy about them, they are deep and actually mean something not only to him but anyone can relate to them. I can relate to this song, and it is one of my favorites. While i understand the possible friends aspect of the meaning, like between charlie and alex, i feel like when he says "darling" and "that makes you out of reach" it gives me more of a female romantic vibe. Either way it is a wonderful song. ~sullifer
