"Always, Forever" is an unreleased Weezer song originally recorded as a demo for Make Believe. It was demoed under the titles "Our Last Chance"and "The Strong Ones", possibly previously titled "Purple Flowers". It eventually ended up as "Last Chance" which was a Fallen Soldiers outtake for Make Believe.

Overview

It was then recorded during the band's second attempt at making Make Believe, at Grandmaster Recorders in Los Angeles, CA. It was one of 12 songs that Rivers Cuomo asked to band to only concentrate on, as well as part of the early Unchained Melody working album. The Unchained Melody version has a roughly 2-minute instrumental introduction ("Me and My Posse") appended to the beginning.

Lyrics

Unchained Melody version:

You don't see me at all
You can't hear when I call
You just go on your way
Happy to get away

I could die suddenly
Falling down from a tree
You'd go on throwing stone
Breaking all of my bones

Always, forever
We will be together
Always, forever
You will be mine

I am a jealous guy
Maybe I made you cry
I get so critical
Mean tricks I try to pull

I am so insecure
I just want to be pure
Give you a loving home
Guess I should be alone

Always, forever
We will be together
Always, forever
You will be mine

Always
Always
Always
And ever
Always
Always
Always
And ever

This is a silly game
I will take all the blame
Back to my solitude
Hope I have not been rude

Always, forever
We will be together
Always, forever
You will be mine

SIR 2/20 version

Baby sleeps
In your arms
Filled with dreams
Of your charms

I can't move
I can't cry
I don't care if I die

Am I sad?
Am I gay?
I don't know
I can't say

All I know
Is your smile
Stay with me
For a while

Always, forever
We will be together
Always, forever
You will be mine

Memories
Haunting me
Haunting you
Set me free

Who could know
What is right
Stay with me
For the night

You were young
And I was old
You were hot
And I was cold

Who could see tragedy
Hanging down over me?
