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.

    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.

    We did a karaoke to his auntie's house and I didn't know my BF put this song on the list, I am a terrible singer but this song hits me inside and got me teary, 10 yrs in relationship more of heartaches and I am thinking of letting him go to do what he wants in life, I am just an option to him, instead of hating him, this song fits for him. </3

    If I should stay, ->after 10 yrs with you, this question popped up to my head, I love you but how what it is for me?

    I would only be in your way. ->you always telling me that I am too needy, you want to enjoy life more on your own

    So I'll go, but I know
    I'll think of you ev'ry step of the way. ->I can go on without you and I know you too, you are very well without me but for me it hurts me and kills me to know my worth to you is not that important

    Bittersweet memories -> with all the fights, I choose to stay and hoping you to see my worth, but I still end up a loser, begging attention and time, appreciation. What I am grateful of, you never cheated on me

    That is all I'm taking with me. ->I am not ashamed that I loved you that much more than you do
    So, goodbye. Please, don't cry. ->this message is for myself, you never cried and shed a single tears for me
    We both know I'm not what you, you need. ->it is plain to see and obvious but I am still staying to save our relationship

    I hope life treats you kind ->I know from the start, you are surrounded by loving family, relatives, cousins and old/new friends, I hope you do this as well to your partner not leave them as optional

    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. -> you may get all the things you want in the world but please don't forget our Creator above all else.

    And I will always love you. -this I cannot promise, I have to moved on and love the person who is ready tp change my life and give me a family that I dreamed of but one thing for sure, I will not forget you Syd BC

    Nobody,

    This song reminds me of my old girlfriend in college. We were so close but I was had so many family issues I pushed her away. Now after 35 years we have met again and we still love each together. Unfortunately we are committed to other people so we deal with our bittersweet memories.

    This song reminds me of ma great girlfriend. Whom I left in Africa. When I told her that time has come for me to go. To go for further students in my medicine. She didn't want to let me go. But it was a great decision that babe took hurt and she did so. It all reminds me of the high school memories with her. I real miss her but know will be seeing her again soon.
    Wish her the great joy and love even when in ma absence.
    Wish you too the best in your struggles for a greater and greatest life.
    Will always love you sweet.

    I will always love my son & grandchildren. My aunt and cousins plus his dad turned him against me. He won't let me be part of his life he is 33 years old or my grandchildren. However I will Always love them. One day he will figure it out, and hopefully my grandchildren will. I never got to be part of my mothers life, my grandparents took me away from her for know reason. But I will always love them. Like my mother did me and my brother, we found out several years later.
