Forever, forever, you'll stay in my heart

Forever, forever, you'll stay in my heart

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup

While combing my hair, now
And wonder what dress to wear, now

I run for the bus
While riding I think about us

At work I take time
And all through my coffee break time

Forever, forever, you'll stay in my heart
And I will love you

Burt Bacharach and Hal David wrote in the incomporable I Say A Little Prayer. Sung so joyously by Aretha Franklin, I Say A Little Prayer articulates with unpretentious eloquence how everyone feels when they feel in love. And if you've never been in love, know, this is how it is gonna be.

DVD Review: Air Guitar Nation
