Forever Anyway

Caryl Sumner
From Self-Titled

How would you like your heart:
Rejected now, or broken later?
Nothing is set in stone
Just scrawled across a piece of paper
So often we fail to see
That things can’t always be the way
We want them to be

How do you see yourself?
Reflection in a dusty mirror
You’re not invincible
Don’t worry ’bout it
I’m not either
But don’t we all tend to think
This raft we ride will never sink
We’re not indelible ink

Forever means nothing
When everything’s changing
Forever means nothing anyway
But maybe, if things stay the same
For a long time
We’ll call it Forever Anyway

Things never stay the same
I like change, but I don’t like changing
What is love anyway?!
A crush gone cancerous
Or something more?
So we’ll all long for delay
But things can’t always stay the way
We would like them to stay

[Chorus]

Nothing is set in stone
But that never stopped the sculpter trying
My heart will search for yours
And then for thirty seconds, you’ll be mine
So we’ll hope hard for delay
That things will always be this way
The way we want them to stay

Forever means nothing
When everything’s changing
Forever means nothing anyway (anyway)
But maybe (just maybe)
If things stay (and you stay)
The same for a long time
We’ll call it Forever Anyway
