“Always” – a romantic, sad song of lost love

31



This is a song for anyone who has lost a great love in their lives, whether it be a broken relationship or the passing of someone very special.

Composed originally on piano, ‘Always’ features wistful, melancholy verses full of tenderness and warmth as the artist reminisces on past experiences and fond memories. These are interspersed with soaring, emotional choruses which finally culminate in a painful declaration of despair as the impact of the author’s loss is fully realised. The song ends quietly and poignantly with the simple yet intimate phrase ‘I miss you’. A song of heart break yet hope.

Lyrics
–––––

I see your face
in the boy that stands beside me
and I just love the way that feels

I heard your laugh
in the cafe on the corner
but that voice belongs to someone else

And I hoped to find you
standing by my side forever
where we would have stayed
for always
And I’d hoped to feel you
holding my hand in your hand
where we would have stayed
always

I’m sure I felt
your warm breath on my shoulder
the breeze was playing with my mind

I know we had to be apart
these thoughts are locked away inside my heart
I know you never meant to leave me here behind

And I hoped to find you
standing by my side forever
where we would have stayed
for always

I miss you
and I need you

And I hope to find you
standing by my side forever
where we would have stayed
for always
And I’d hoped to feel you
holding my hand in your hand
where we would have stayed
always

My love for you has been torn apart
left me stranded
left me in the dark

Love that started out with open doors
has been put back into pause

My thoughts of you will keep me going strong
I think of you holding on
just one more day I forever crave
Always

And I miss you

  2. I found myself cryin thinking of the beautiful times a spent with my ex, …. havnt though about it in 2 years but I heard this song and it just hit me

  3. this song reminds me of my crush ❤ I like my crush soo much! I think of him day and night and I always wonder does he like me back but then…..I found out… he had a Girlfriend ???? this whole time he never like me! ?? I feel soo used ??

  4. Yes..thank you. Had my love not died 8 years ago..we would be married this year, 30 years.
    When I think of resuming an old love..it just is not possible as I do not want to be the 'other' just the only.

  5. this song reminds me of my long lost love. i still an inlove with her after 4 years. I would still marry her if given the chance again. I love you B.N.S. you know who you are… never forget I love you. <3

  6. This song is beautiful…It reminds me of my childhood sweetheart that for some reason or another we were meant to be but didn't happen. He was the one that I loved  and got away or destiny took away from me. Just like destiny took my father when I was 10 yrs old.
