We pledged our forevers to each other that night
Under the twinkling midnight sky
No such words were spoken
But none were needed on that crisp fall evening
It was all in the wild beating of our hearts

I was barely seventeen, you were nineteen
What did we know of love or forever
Everything, it would seem
All we needed to know
Against our invincible youth the what if's could not stand

Years have blinked by
Time passing like a speeding train
Forever doesn't seem like so very long
Eyes still catch and hold
Youth did not steer us wrong

It's been twelve years since that evening
The night our words were carried away on smoke
To the very Heavens where God leaned down to hear
And still our hearts beat wildly
And still it is...forever.
