Tell somebody ‘forever is a long time
But God loves you that long’

[Verse 1]
God says ill be commited to you
Ill never leave you
Nothing in thi world could make me
Salk awy
No matter what lies may bring
Ill be by your side
No matter what you face
You won’t be lonely

[Chorus]
Because forever is a long time
That’s how long I’ll love you
That’s how long I’ll love you
Forever
Forever is a long time
That’s how long I’ll love you
That’s how long I’ll love you
Forever

[Verse 2]
No matter what life may bring
I’ll be by your side
No matter what you face
You won’t be lonely
And this is my promise to you
My love is everlasting
You can count on me
To be there always

[Chorus]
Forever is a long time
And that’s how long I’ll love you
That’s how long I’ll love you
Forever
Somebody needs to know forever is a long time
And that’s how long I’ll love you
That’s how long I’ll love you
Forever

Forever is a long time
And that’s how long I’ll love you
I’m gonna always be right there
That’s how long I’ll love you
Forever

[Bridge]
So hear me, you got to know that I will
No matter what life may bring
I’m gonna always be by your side
However long
You got to know through the thick and thin
Even through your ups and your downs
You can count on me
Forever

Why this song?

This is a gospel song that I have told my various friends on the row [death row] to hear as a song from God as well as from me. As you know, our commitment is a “forever” commitment. They need to know that just as God will never, ever leave them nor forsake them, that their supporters and I also won’t leave them. - Cari
