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.
