She's sitting at the table
The hour's getting later
He was supposed to be here
She's sure he would've called
She waits a little longer
There's no one in the driveway
No ones' said they've seen him
"Why, is something wrong?"
She looks back to the window
Suddenly the phone rings
A voice says, "Something's happened."
That she should come right now
Her mind goes to December
She thinks of when he asked her
He bent down on his knee first
And he said...

I want you forever
Forever and always
Through the good and the bad and the ugly
We'll grow old together
Forever and always

She pulls up to the entrance
She walks right to the front desk
They lead her through a million halls
A maze that's never ending
They talk about what happened
But she can barely hear them
She tries to keep a straight face
As she walks into the room
She sits by his bedside
Holds his hand too tight
They talk about the kids they're gonna have
And the good life
The house on the hillside
Where they would...
Stay there forever

I want you forever
Forever and always
Through the good and the bad and the ugly
We'll grow old together
Forever and always

And always remember
Whether rich or for poor or for better
We'll still love each other
Forever and always

Then she gets an idea
And calls in the nurses
Brings up the chaplain
And he says a couple verses
She borrows some rings
From the couple next door
Everybody's laughing
As the tears fall on the floor
She looks into his eyes and says...

I want you forever
Forever and always
Through the good and the bad and the ugly
We'll grow old together
Forever and always

And always remember
Whether happy or sad or whatever
We'll still love each other
Forever and always

She finishes the vows but
The beeps are getting too slow
His voice is almost too low
As he says...

I'll love you forever
Forever and always
Please just remember
Even if I'm not there
I'll always love you
Forever and always

    But then there's a miracle. God says to let the man live. In the room where the woman cries and the vows were said, the nurse shouts he's alive. He takes a deep breath, looks at her, and says, "I'm not leaving you yet." And they buy the house on the hillside where they were going to stay forever and always. They had the kids that they would loved forever and always.
    They lived happily ever after because a story is way too sad if it ends like that.
    But the meaning of this song is quite clear. The man was in a horrible accident and got seriously injured. His fiance rushes to the hospital. They talk about the future they're going to have as he slowly fades away. At the last moment they exchange vows and he dies. Not all things have a happy ending, but this one is horribly beautiful.

    This song, in my perspective, means, you love someone. You really love someone. And, no matter what happens between you two, if it's supposed to be real, then it will last Forever and Always. It has so much meaning, it's unexplainable.

    Wow, the ending of this song is just soooo amazing. I actually cried. This song should definitely be on a movie soundtrack when the lover is dying. OMG I would just die!!
    It's basically about an engaged couple whose love life is slowly fading away since the guy is at hospital and probably dying. But no matter what, they will always love each other. To celebrate their love, they got married just in case he does die and they can at least have the memories of getting married. Even though it is most probable that he dies, they try to look on the bright side and the happy future they'll have together. :)

    Love will always extend past death, it really does mean that you can love someone forever. This is so touching this song..
