She remembers the nights he'd come calling
His yellow-silk tie
In love she saw him falling for her in the fire of July
Then one day as the nights grew longer
Blackberry winter in a little white church
Stood a young pretty bride

[Chorus]
Forever changed,
Forever changed,
Nothing ever stays the same
Forever named,
Forever changed

She remembers the change in her body
The blooming within
And how her heart seemed to flutter with the wind
Then one night as the days grew longer
That Indian summer
She brought love into the world
Cried and held me then

[Chorus]
Forever changed,
Forever changed,
Nothing ever stays the same
Forever a child,
Forever changed

Somedays she'll talk about aunt Rosie
The sister she lost
Asking when she's coming over
And why she hasn't called
Somedays I just hold her fragile hand
As Tom creeps cross the floor
Somedays it almost kills me
Watching her memories slip away a little more

[Outro]
Forever changed,
Forever changed,
Nothing ever stays the same
Forever named,
Forever a child,
Forever loved,
Forever changed.

    It's about a girl looking back on her mother's life and how her experiences changed her, and as carrie sits with her now (her mother a victim of alzheimer's or dementia), it hurts her to see the last change that will happen to her mother.

    The daughter is talking bout her mother, when she was born and as she is as a woman with a child now. Her mother has alzheimers and she is hurt by the way her mother is loosing her memories everyday. Its a beautiful song!

    The story of her mother losing her memories bc she is old and sick, biggest moments she does remember are bringing her into the world and her sister as her friend. Everyday is different and "nothing stays the same"
