Carole King – Now And Forever lyrics

Now and forever, you are a part of me
And the memory cuts like a knife
Didn't we find the ecstasy, didn't we share the daylight
When you walked into my life

Now and forever, I'll remember
All the promises still unbroken
And think about all the words between us
That never needed to be spoken

We had a moment, just one moment
That will last beyond a dream, beyond a lifetime
We are the lucky ones
Some people never get to do all we got to do
Now and forever, I will always think of you

Didn't we come together, didn't we live together
Didn't we cry together
Didn't we play together, didn't we love together
And together we lit up the world

I miss the tears, I miss the laughter
I miss the day we met and all that followed after
Sometimes I wish I could always be with you
The way we used to do
Now and forever, I will always think of you
Now and forever, I will always be with you

    With my class graduation coming up, I've never really been thinking about leaving all my friends who've I've grown up with since preschool. I've been preoccupied with other "important" things. But this song made me realize just how much they mean to me. And that when I get mad and say I can't wait to leave them. I will never mean it. We were special. We were together. That's a lot to say for just a class, but 15 of us together for 10 years is a lot. This song has the exact discription of our friendships. :)

    Marjo1907 has hit the nail on the head. From its meaning in the movie A League of Their Own it brings bittersweet memories to Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis) and for me it chronicles my life with my late wife who died at age 45. Especially "...think about all the words between us that never needed to be spoken..." At times I thing the lyricist must have known my wife and I. Thank you for making it available.

    I have used this song as an opening and/or closing of my eulogy speeches for my dearest of friends who have passed on. I think it says a lot with respect to friendship and love for one another. It describes many of our closest relationships with sisters and friends. I understand what SkipW means.

    To me, this song is for my children. The best big brother & little sister, ever. Living together, crying together, playing together & loving one another through it all. Taking the good with the bad & the contentment with the frustration, relying on the love of their sibling every day, every minute. It's a magical time- that can't last. It must change & it will change as they grow. We will always have this time in our hearts & benefit from it forever. I am truly a better person because of their relationship & I am the one lucky be a part of such a closeness.
