Song Meaning and Background of Forever by Chris Brown


With Andre Merritt, Rob Allen, Brian Kennedy, and Jamal "Polow da Don" Jones, who are also the producers, Brown co-wrote the song. developed initially for a Doublemint commercial.


Brown and his composition group, the Graffiti Artists (Rob Allen and Andre Merritt), wrote the song. He claimed that Polow da Don made a rhythm as soon as he entered the studio, and Brown wrote to it. The group "wanted to give it that other side of crossover, and go a little bit to that pop realm," because the producer's approach was "more of a European, techno, house-type feel."


He used autotune to record the song, just like he did for one of his earlier songs, "Kiss Kiss."


The song "Forever" is actually an expanded version of a Doublemint gum commercial jingle that was commissioned by a marketing firm working for Wrigley. Brown first wrote the brief version for the ad, then expanded it into a full song during a recording session that was commissioned by the gum manufacturer in February 2007.


The song peaked in the top ten in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States, as well as at number one in Ireland and New Zealand. In Germany, Switzerland, and Denmark, it also made the top forty.


Lyrics of Forever by Chris Brown


One, two, three, four

Hey, hey (Forever)

Hey, hey (Forever)

 

It's you and me, moving at the speed of light into eternity, yeah

Tonight is the night to join me in the middle of ecstasy

Feel the melody and the rhythm of the music

Around you, around you (Oh-oh)

I'ma take you there, I'ma take you there (Oh)

So don't be scared, I'm right here, baby

We can go anywhere, go anywhere (Yeah)

But first, it's your chance, take my hand, come with me

 

It's like I've waited my whole life (Oh) for this one night (Oh)

It's gon' be me, you and the dance floor

'Cause we only got one night (Oh, oh)

Double your pleasure, double your fun

And dance fore-e-ever, fore-e-ever

Fore-e-ever, forever

Fore-e-ever, fore-e-ever, fore-e-ever

Forever on the dance floor

 

Feels like we're on another level, oh

Feels like our love's intertwined

We can be two rebels

Breaking the rules, me and you, you and I

All you gotta do is watch me (Watch me)

Look what I can do with my feet (My feet)

Baby, feel the beat inside

I'm driving, you can take the front seat (Front seat)

I just need you to trust me (Trust me)

Oh (Girl), oh (Girl), oh (Girl)

It's like I've—

 

It's like I've waited my whole life (Oh) for this one night (One night, oh)

It's gon' be me, you and the dance floor (Dance floor)

'Cause we only got one night (Oh, oh, one night)

Double your pleasure, double your fun (Yeah)

And dance fore-e-ever, fore-e-ever

Fore-e-ever, forever

Fore-e-ever, fore-e-ever, fore-e-ever

Forever on the dance floor

 

It's a long way down, we so high off the ground

Sending for an angel to bring me your heart

Girl, where did you come from? Got me so undone

Gaze in your eyes, got me saying, "What a beautiful lady"

No ifs, ands or maybes

I'm releasing my heart and it's feeling amazing

There's no one else that matters, you love me

And I won't let you fall, girl (Fall, girl), let you fall, girl, oh

Oh, oh, yeah, yeah

I won't let you fall, let you fall, let you fall, oh, oh-oh

Yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah

 

It's like—

It's like I've waited my whole life (Oh, whole life) for this one night (One night, oh)

It's gon' be me, you and the dance floor (Me, you and the dance floor)

'Cause we only got one night (Oh, oh)

Double your pleasure, double your fun

And dance fore-e-ever, fore-e-ever

Fore-e-ever, forever

Fore-e-ever, fore-e-ever, fore-e-ever

Forever on the dance floor

 

Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh, yeah

Forever, ever, ever, ever

Forever, ever, ever
