Forever and Almost

Album: A Fine Mess (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Voegele commented in publicity materials, that this ballad, is "one of most depressing songs on the record." She explained: "It's about being in a relationship with somebody where you know their heart's not in it as much as yours, and how you're fed this story your whole life about everyone living happily ever after, but there's always that little bit of doubt. It's like that scene in the Sex And The City movie, where Carrie tells Charlotte's little girl, 'You know this is just a fairytale, right?' Its true!"
