Maccabees, The - Forever I've Known Lyrics




I'm a child to your voice
To the sound though it can eat me alive
Ten toes and ten fingers
Any sense that I've had in this life

Won't you stay a while
Kill some time
You know that I'll make it easy

And I know
Know it wouldn't be forever
Forever I've known
Nothing stays forever
Couldn't still try

I want to see you
It's not good enough to have you here in my head
Want the spray from the sea
Come on I'll make it easy

And I know
Know it wouldn't be forever
Forever I've known
Nothing stays forever
Couldn't still try

Things I've said in a rage
Can still be unsaid
Took the cold from my bones
Took the cold from my head

And I know
Know nothing stays forever
Forever I've known
Nothing stays forever
Couldn't just lie

I'm a child to your voice
And I know
Know nothing stays forever
Forever I've known
Nothing stays forever
Forever I've known

Maccabees, The Forever I've Known Comments
  1. Thomas 84

    To this day I still struggle to find a song as good as this....genius on so many levels if you can see it.

  2. Thomas 84

    watching their ever last performance of this at the ally pally was something else.

  3. Julia Santini

    wish they could come back to br for one last show

  4. Fernanda Curti

    The NME made this list of the 10 best Maccabees song and after it came up to number 2 i was like "forever i´ve known! forever i´ve known!" and to my amazement it was it, number one in the list. No bloody wonder, it´s so beautiful it manages to be my favourite Maccabees song. Thank goodness for this band. i love them so much.
