"Forever" is a song by American singer-songwriter Mariah Carey from her fifth studio album, Daydream. It was released by Columbia Records on March 10, 1996, as an airplay-only single from the album. The song was written and produced by Carey and Walter Afanasieff, and was composed throughout 1995. Its lyrics describe a situation where the protagonist knows her relationship with her lover has withered away, however he will continue living in her memory forever. The song's music video is a collage of snippets from Carey's shows at the Tokyo Dome, during her Daydream World Tour in 1996. Most of the video is the performance of the song during one of the three Japanese shows on the tour. Serving as an airplay only song in the US, and a limited release around the world, the song achieved minimal chart success. In the United States, Billboard rules did not allow the charting of non-commercially released songs. For this reason, it did not chart on the Hot 100, however peaking at number two on the Adult Contemporary chart. Outside the US, the song peaked at number 11 in Canada, 40 in New Zealand and 44 in the Netherlands.
Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
for-ev′ėr, adv. for ever, for all time to come: to eternity.—adv. Forev′ermore, for ever hereafter.

Never be carried away by anything or anyone no matter the beauty or handsomeness. In fact, you should not be carried away by fashion, because it changes with time. You don't have to be carried away by beauty or handsomeness, because it fades away with time. Refuse to be carried away by money or riches, because you are here (on earth) just for a little while. Oh! yes, no human can live forever i.e. no one can and will ever enjoy his or her riches or wealth forever (Proverbs 27:24). Moreover, refuse to be carried away by your knowledge or wisdom, because it will cease once you are dead. Besides that, desist from boasting or bragging about your properties or assets, for they will surely become old-fashioned sooner or later and consequently they will depreciate in value and at worst become worthless. Conclusively, all of the above proves that everything or everyone comes and goes unimpeachably (beyond doubt and criticism) and then life goes on as ever. In other words, nothing or no one is perpetual (never ending or never changing) naturally and in actual sense. Therefore, always bear all of the above in mind. ~Emeasoba George
A beautiful word of love radiates joy forever.
