  1. Forever

    "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.

Examples of forever in a Sentence

  1. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    Always do the things fast in your life, because some things are coming from the future towards you; they may separate you forever from doing the things you want to do! Never forget, some things are coming from the future, be fast!

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Nothing should bother you in life not even adversity nor poverty. For, nothing lasts forever. Yes of course, every matter or issue of life has a limit or breaking point including adversity and poverty. Are you undergoing adversity presently or are you currently experiencing poverty? If Yes, then listen up, it's just for a little while. That is to say, you will sooner or later outlive it or rather you will overcome it eventually. I mean, you won't remain poor forever or rather you won't keep on undergoing adversity or poverty forever. Furthermore, nothing should make you to become orgulous, proud, haughty, disdainful or arrogant in life. Not even your own child or children, nor your certificates, nor your qualifications, nor your political status, nor your social status, nor your job, nor your money, nor your properties, nor your knowledge, nor your wisdom, nor your insights, nor your power, nor your riches, nor stuffs like that. Because, you cannot and you will not live forever. Oh! Yes, you heard me right as usual, you will definitely leave everything you've acquired behind someday. Apart from that, God resists the proud or the arrogant (James 4:6). But guess what? He (God) gives more grace to the humble. Besides, whenever you are proud of whatever you have, you are unknowingly disregarding God and taking his grace upon your life for granted. In other words, whoever that is proud of anything he or she has acquired at any given period of time has failed to acknowledge almighty God as the giver of whatever he or she claims to possess. And God is never happy with such person(s). Thus, desist from pride and arrogance. For, you should not be condescending at all. -Emeasoba George

  5. Brooke Burke:

    It's so crazy to think about that, it's so mind-boggling to me to even think about 50. I still feel40ish. I'd like to stay 40's forever but I do feel like, believe it or not, even in the most challenging time with this health crisis, I feel like this is right now the greatest year of my life. Maybe it's because all my kids have been home and I've really enjoyed this togetherness.
