If I should stay,
I would only be in your way.
So I'll go, but I know
I'll think of you ev'ry step of the way.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
You, my darling you. Hmm.

Bittersweet memories
That is all I'm taking with me.
So, goodbye. Please, don't cry.
We both know I'm not what you, you need.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.

(Instrumental solo)

I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you've dreamed of.
And I wish to you, joy and happiness.
But above all this, I wish you love.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I, I will always love you.

You, darling, I love you.
Ooh, I'll always, I'll always love you.

    I think it means that when someone dies to not cry but remember the sweet memories of them and carry on with the person in their hearts and that god will help go through the pain and suffering of losing a dear, loved one.

    This song was great! It has a high pitch voice and I like what Whitney Houston has done with that song! I sing it so much, my whole family is yelling at me cause I sing it over and over again. Now I have gone to auditions,nationals, and now this Friday I am going to the finals. Without that song I would not have made it. The judges said I am a 10 year old girl with a big voice!
