Jazmine Sullivan - Forever Don't Last Lyrics

I had high hopes for us, baby
Like I was on dope for us, baby
Chasin' after a high that I'd never get back again
So we turn into three long years
And it became painfully clear that we,
We would never see those days again

But I guess forever, doesn't last too long forever
Doesn't last too long forever
Doesn't last too long these days, hey
And I tried to believe that we could make it
But trying don't work, so I just have to face that forever
Doesn't last too long these days, hey

Still think about the good times we had
And how you used to make me laugh
But, baby, I know most times we were miserable
So every time I wanna call, baby, what always helps
Is when I think of the pain, and I realize
I'm better off by myself

'Cause forever, doesn't last too long forever
Doesn't last too long forever
Doesn't last too long these days, hey
And I tried to believe that we could make it
But trying don't work, so I just have to face that forever
Doesn't last too long these days, hey

Lord knows I gave it my all and
I couldn't save us from falling
'Cause some people ain't meant to be together forever forever

'Cause forever, doesn't last too long forever
Doesn't last too long forever
Doesn't last too long these days, hey
And I tried to believe that we could make it
But trying don't work, so I just have to face that forever
Doesn't last too long forever these days, hey

    So painfully true that forever doesn’t last long at all these days! It’s been 2 months in2 my break up with my X thus far. It’s still hard for me not to mention we tried to work it out 3weeks ago, he still couldn’t deliver the simple things i needed from him! 😞 I finally got the courage to let him be free like he wants to be! Crazy how u give a person all of u and everything only to get nothing but a broken heart in return! 2 and a half years of my life wasted but my healing process definitely gets a little better everyday 📝

  63. Ivory V

    2:23-2:53 she hit them notes so perfect I just realized she was singing the exact note of the instrument. Is thank a electric guitar?

  70. Sonny Williams

    SMFH....You would think that after 7years of lies, humiliation, and disappointment, as smart as I am, I wouldn't be laying in a cheap motel room alone with nothing and nobody. Well, I guess the toughest lessons in life come with a lot of pain
