Whitney Houston – I Will Always Love You lyrics

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.

    Oh I really love this song very much. I like listening to this song and it reminds me of my sweet bf. I love him. Well, it's all about a girl/boy who will always love the guy/girl no matter what happen...her/his love will always be with him/her. Oh I know lovers will really like this song. As I like it so much.

    A year ago my mother passed away suddenly and this song makes me think of my parents. The day after she passed away my brothers and I found out that they had secretly gotten a divorced 6 years earlier. No one knew cause they still went about their days like nothing happened. Neither one moved out and they even still slept in the same bed together. The song, to me best represents my father cause he's the one that asked for the divorce but the moment my mom passed away, his heart was broken. The verse about how the person hopes life treats them kind, I'd hope would best describes my mother about my dad in the last few moments of her life cause that's the kind of person she was. My dad will always love my mom and he still goes to visit her grave site to this day. That's what this song means to me.

    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!

    This song makes me cry. I think about my daughter, gave my best to have her finish her degree in nursing. I wanted her to have a good life when I'm gone and I made it, we both made it. She graduated and it was one of the happiest moment in my life. But one thing I don't understand, why it seems like it's all about her. I don't know why I don't feel like I am important to her like how important she is to me. But anyway, I will always love her.

    I look and to all that was said about my sister, some good and most bad but what we fail to look at my sister gave it all dispite her short coming she was human too and dealt with a hell of lot of demons as many us do. I will always remember the good and what she did for many, and baby girl get it togather we love you to always trust in god, your mom will always be there watching over you we will always love you, and W. E. H. , mommy houston you stay strong too. For all you haters out there let my sister rest in peace no one perfect so stop the dump stuff we don't want here that, and whitney we will always love you.
